2 players Chelsea might regret selling in future

Chelsea are a football club known to be impatient with their young players. Over the years, they have regretted selling some of their youngsters, but they kept making the same mistakes over and over again.

Ever since Roman Abramovich took control of the club in 2003, Chelsea have been spending big on players rather than grooming. His approach has undoubtedly been successful and listed Chelsea as one of the biggest clubs in the world.

In this article are the two players Chelsea might regret selling

2. Tammy Abraham

After been promoted from the youth academy and scoring a lot of goals, but not a single one against the top teams, the Blues felt that Tammy Abraham wasn't ready for the big stage.

The arrival of Romelu Lukaku in the summer means that the 24-year-old won't get the needed time on the pitch to ease his development. Hence, the Stamford Bridge side sold the English striker to Roma for a fee around £34m.

Joining one of the best managers in the game, Tammy Abraham has been on fire for the Giallorossi. So far this campaign, he has bagged four goals and provided three assists for the Stadio Olimpico across all competitions. His excellent performance has earned him a call back to the England national team.

1. Fikayo Tomori

Tomori was sent on loan to Milan with an option to buy after being deemed surplus to requirements at Chelsea after the purchase of Thiago Silva. After an impressive six months with the Rossoneri, Fikayo's move was made permanent. The club exercised the £25m option to sign him.

Ever since, the 23-year-old has been getting better and better with each passing game. He has really stepped up his game and has become a beast in the Milan shirt.

The former Chelsea stopper has perfected the art of defending with a brilliant defending on a consistent basis.

Chelsea failed to give him a chance to prove his worth at the highest level and he's doing exactly that at the San Siro.

His excellent performances has attracted England CT, Gareth Southgate, and like Abraham, has been called for international duty.

In sum, these two transfers have shown Chelsea are planning for the present and not the future.
