If anyone want to make this deal make sense to me without invoking a new, completely signing by Chelsea within the next hours, go right ahead. I'll wait (for an hour). Chelsea are light on midfielders, so they loan one away without bringing one in in return? Either they have gone insane over at Stamford Bridge or something else is at work here. I'd like to believe in option number two, but that'll require... some evidence at this point.
