Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has stated that Romelu Lukaku, Kevin de Bruyne and Tomas Kalas will be given a chance at Stamford Bridge in the new season.
The trio spent last season on loan with clubs around Europe gaining first-team experience. But the Blues' coach thinks they are ready to be Chelsea players now.
"They are good players with a very good value in the market and we have these players this season for free, after an investment that the club did before," the manager told the club's website.
"After the development of the players on loan, it is right moment for them to be back."
And considering that they are still young and have more playing time to develop.
"They are very young with space to develop, they will be better year after year and I can imagine in five years they are much better than today - but what they have today is more than enough to belong to this squad."
Indeed, Lukaku has enough to be part of the Chelsea squad as he displayed his potential to be the new Didier Drogba after bullying top defenders with his strength and agility, and scoring 17 goals last season. Most outstanding, was his remarkable performance against Manchester United on the final day of last season where he netted a hat-trick.
Similarly, Kevin de Bruyne who was described as a better version of Eden Hazard by an ex-coach of the pair, was impressing at Werder Bremen last season. He managed 10 goals and 10 assists in 34 matches for the Bundesliga side.
Meanwhile, Kalas who spent the past two seasons on loan at Vitesse Arnhem in the Netherlands, is also of remarkable defensive ability.
This will come as a good news for the trio, particularly for Belgian internationals Lukaku and De Bruyne - who seek to be part of the World Cup campaign next year.
