In January 2016, Alexandre Pato was signed by the English club on a loan deal before joining Villarreal in the same year. Later in 2017, Chinese club Tianjin Tianhai signed him and then he went back to São Paulo in 2019.

You might not know this fact but Jamal Musiala stayed at Chelsea for eight whole years. That means he had been there since he was around 9 years old and he made a lot of friends there.

Mohamed Salah joined Chelsea in 2014 before becoming one of the best players in the world. He didn’t show his best form there and was declared flop but as soon as he signed Liverpool, he demonstrated his dribbling skills along with some pace and vision.

The same goes for Kevin De Bruyne who is undoubtedly the best midfielder in the world at present. But unlike Salah, De Bruyne was good from the very start and so Manchester City saw his potential and eventually signed him after that.
