Chelsea is building a team – not only for the present but for the future as well.

The new owners have splashed the cash on the senior team, with signings like Raheem Sterling, Kalidou Koulibaly and Marc Cucurella.

Chelsea have also gone for young stars like Gabriel Slonina, Carney Chukwuemeka, Omari Hutchinson, Eddie Beach and now Cesare Casadei.

Todd Boehly is not only preparing a Chelsea team for the now, but the Blues are building a team for the future as well.

Chelsea have gone on to sign the next big stars in the game that will go on to be a mainstay in the first team for many years.

It’s also why Chelsea are pushing to sign up Everton’s Anthony Gordon and Leicester City’s Wesley Fofana who are both 21.

According to The Telegraph, Thomas Tuchel also wants to replenish his squad with top, young English talents having deemed a number of the club’s recent foreign recruits surplus to requirements.
