New, comments

On deadline day of January, 2013, let's take a look at what Chelsea players have contracts expiring in the near future

While Rafa Benitez continues to talk about how much this Chelsea club is improving despite actual results showing exactly the opposite, I have a hard time being totally down on the chances of Chelsea FC going forward. Yes, we clearly need a new manager if we're ever going to become European champions for a second time, but the long term future of the club looks to include a good number of talented young players on the pitch.

With that in mind, I decided that I'd take a look at the contractual status of Chelsea's players to see what kind of shape we look to bee in going forward. Here's a look at when each Chelsea player's contract expires, as well as several of our key players on loan (current age in in parenthesis):

  • Petr Cech (30) - June 2016
  • Branislav Ivanovic (28) - June 2016
  • Ashley Cole (32) - June 2014
  • David Luiz (25) - June 2017
  • Oriol Romeu (21) - June 2015
  • Ramires (25) - June 2017
  • Frank Lampard (34) - June 2013
  • Fernando Torres (28) - June 2016
  • Juan Mata (24) - June 2016
  • Oscar (21) - June 2017
  • John Obi Mikel (25) - June 2017
  • Victor Moses (22) - June 2017
  • Florent Malouda (32) - June 2013
  • Eden Hazard (22) - June 2017
  • Paulo Ferreira (34) - June 2013
  • Marko Marin (23) - June 2017
  • Ross Turnbull (28) - June 2013
  • Gary Cahill (27) - June 2017
  • John Terry (32) - June 2014
  • Cesar Azpilicueta (23) - June 2017
  • Demba Ba (27) - June 2016
  • Yossi Benayoun (32) - June 2013
  • Ryan Bertrand (23) - June 2017
  • Henrique Hilario (37) - June 2013
  • Nathan Ake (17) - June 2015
  • Michael Essien (30) - June 2015
  • Kevin de Bruyne (21) - June 2017
  • Romelu Lukaku (19) - June 2016
  • Josh McEachran (19) - June 2016
  • Lucas Piazon (19) - June 2017
  • Thibaut Courtois (20) - June 2016
  • Nathaniel Chalobah (18) - June 2014
  • Tomas Kalas (19) - June 2014
  • Gael Kakuta (21) - June 2015
  • Jeffrey Bruma (20) - June 2014
  • Patrick van Aanholt (22) - June 2015
  • Kenneth Omeruo (19) - June 2017
  • Thorgan Hazard (19) - June 2016

Regardless of what signings Chelsea may or may not make on deadline day, there is an awful lot of young talent under contract for a very decent amount of time. The results yesterday may have been disappointing for Chelsea fans everywhere, but regardless of the present, the future looks very bright.
