12. Ruben Loftus-Cheek

Going to Schalke would be literally be an amazing move for him, I still have my doubts about what he can contribute here but if he could get in the team there? Would be a great experience. German football is probably one of the most outstanding leagues for young attack minded players to develop in and Schalke were no mugs last season. Seriously think that him staying here and rejected this move will come back and bite him on the arse big style especially when Cesc and Kovacic are fit and back in the squad. Kovacic coming in on loan to sit on the bench is not happening. 

Someone said on other page learning from Sarri is better than playing 90 mins every week, I 100% disagree, hes a young guy, 22 years old, he needs to be playing.

Schalke are interested in signing 22-year-old England midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek on loan but Chelsea are unlikely to sanction his departure. (Telegraph)

Loftus-Cheek is determined to fight for a starting place in Chelsea's line-up. (Guardian)

This is his last chance to get into the 1st team. Hes not made the most of his chances so far. Lets gope hes better at going forward than Batkley as a stand in.

If true bad move. He should go out and play. Its going to be hard for him unless we get injuries to feature every week. Barkley, Kovacic, Cesc will all be head of him in that third role which is undoubtedly the only one that will be up for shares until Kovacic gets fully fit. Maybe not, I'm still not 100% convinced hes got the final picture to be a big feature here, he can dribble but end product isn't amazing.

He needs to stay and fight for his place. I think his way more talented on the ball compared to Barkley, by the time we are done with Europa group stage Im pretty sure he will be ahead of him in the perking order.

No his good enough to start 30 games for us including cup competitions. He needs to learn the Sarri way and I am sure he is more talented than Barkley, by December if he has the right attitude he will be the first sub of the bench or starting games when Kovacic is injured or rotated ahead of Barkley.

Cesc has been on the decline for a while, and Barkley and him are similar level for me at the moment. Both provide different things. 

He could very well work his way into being the first guy off the bench for the midfield. If we are getting bullied off the ball as well given our size in midfield, he is again a good option.
