Chelsea have produced some great football players over the past few years. The likes of Mohamed Salah and Nathaniel Ake once played for Chelsea in the English Premier League. However, there are some players who flopped at Stamford Bridge but went on to shine at another club. Let us take a close look at five of them.
Roman Abramovich secured the signing of Andriy Shevchenko in 2006. The Ukrainian star was one of the most prolific strikers at that time. However, he failed to perform well at Stamford Bridge. He played in England for about two years. This is because he went back to AC Milan on loan. However, he was only able to score nine goals in the English Premier League. Andriy Shevchenko went on to shine at Dynamo Kyiv after leaving Stamford Bridge.
2. Mohamed Salah
The Egyptian star joined Chelsea in 2014. However, he only scored two goals for Chelsea in the English Premier League. Many fans criticised Mohamed Salah because he flopped at Stamford Bridge. However, Salah has returned to the English Premier League. He has already scored 102 league goals for Liverpool.
3. Kevin De Bruyne
The Belgium international played for Chelsea in the English Premier League. However, he made only three appearances for Chelsea in the English first division. Some fans blamed Jose Mourinho for Kevin De Bruyne's poor form at Stamford Bridge. This is because Mourinho did not give him a chance to shine at Stamford Bridge. However, Kevin De Bruyne went on to join Manchester City in the English Premier League. He is now regarded as one of the best players in the world of football.
4. Fernando Torres
Liverpool sold Fernando Torres to Chelsea for a transfer fee of about £50 million. The Spanish star was one of the best players in the English Premier League at that time. However, he scored just 20 league goals during his time at Stamford Bridge. Fernando Torres revived his career at Atletico Madrid in Spain.
5. Alvaro Morata
Morata moved to Stamford Bridge in the summer of 2017. He made 47 appearances for Chelsea in the English Premier League. However, Alvaro Morata is regarded as a flop at Chelsea. This is due to the fact that he scored only 16 league goals for the club. Morata has now revived his professional career. He played well for Atletico Madrid before moving to Juventus in Italy.
