Only three days ago we saw ex-Chelsea youngster Scott Sinclair star for Swansea in the play-offs, well now two more youngsters have left and a third could follow.                                                                                                                                                                  
Michael Mancienne left Chelsea on Tuesday for pastures new, after the Blues accepted a £3 million bid from Hamburg for the player.                                                                                                                                                                                                             
The move will see him link up with Frank Arnesen, the man who was once the Technical Director at Stamford Bridge decided to bring him to Hamburg, the club where he is now the Sporting Director.                                                                                       
Mancienne would have been under Arnesen’s supervision at the Bridge and feels that his new club would be the perfect place for the youngster to develop.                                                                                                                                                         
Whilst he has made 97 league starts only two were in Chelsea colours, during his spells with Wolves and QPR he regularly impressed but not enough to break through to the first-team.                                                                                                                 
Then there is Fabio Borini, the Italian youngster who joined the club from Bologna in 2007. The 20-year-old has spent the last two months on loan at Swansea and played alongside Scott Sinclair on Monday at Wembley.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  
During his loan spell he impressed with six crucial goals in eight league games which helped his loan club to finish third.                                                                                                                                                                                                                          
Due to limited chances and he decided it was best to leave the Bridge and return to Italy, despite his young age and limited appearances Parma have decided to give him a five-year contract.                                                                                                                
The third player who could be on his way is young Jack Cork, after playing for six different clubs on loan it looks like he could well make a permanent move away from Stamford Bridge.                                                                                                                         
Whilst on loan, Jack has collected many admirers. It is thought that both Blackpool and Southampton have had bids of £750,000 accepted, he spent five months on loan with the latter back in 2008 as well as spending the previous season with Scunthorpe who were managed by Saints’ current boss Nigel Adkins.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        
It is also thought that Leeds and Nottingham Forest are both interested as well as Swansea City whose manager Brendan Rodgers coached Cork at the Bridge and when he was in charge of Watford.                                                                                                   
It is always sad to see young talent leave, let’s just hope that this is not something that Chelsea regret in the future like Manchester United do with Gerald Pique and Giuseppe Rossi.
