Top 5 Untapped Talents that May Make Stamford Bridge the new La Masia As a really harsh critic, the only thing I find lacking in Chelsea FC is the presence of (enough) young prospects who may be able to save us millions and keep our status intact in case Abramovich leaves or in a highly unlikely case, stops spending. Some may say that Clifford, Piazon and co. may be enough but they are just a handful and anyways cannot make a whole first team later. So here are some talents Chelsea should really keep an eye on: 1.Juan Manuel Iturbe
He is a very young player, relatively unknown in football circles but with huge potential and that includes shooting, crossing, dribbling and speed. Instead of opting for Theo Walcott, (who may be rediscovering himself after the Euros) we can consider him as he will mainly not cost that much, have a much larger room for development and arguably be a much better all round player than Theo (in case that rediscovery shuts).

He is already a super star and like me, already has many die-hard fans. He is truly, talent personified and at the age of 18, can easily shame almost any defender in the world. His style of play is really creative and it was depressing to see that Denmark were causing their own downfall at the Euros by not giving him enough of the ball. His one touch, bit out of control may be very annoying for some of his team members but that’s how top clubs like Barca play with tiki-taka and stuff. If Chelsea is really ardent on emulating Barca under Pep, he is a must sign. http://youtu.be/osv3xjzkoV0
This defender, is somehow (I don’t know how) been ignored by the Chelsea scouts, especially when they need a right back! Agreed, he is too young to replace Bosingwa and may make rookie mistakes but believe me,...
