Water is wet, the sky is blue
Yet another Chelsea youngster has signed a new deal at the Stamford Bridge side before leaving on loan, this time in the form of Mario Pasalic.
The young Serbian will join Champions League outfit and Russian giants Spartak Moscow to gain valuable first team experience.
The 22-year-old signed a four-year deal before leaving the club and a statement from Chelsea explains it will give him valuable Champions League experience.
Pasalic featured in the clubs pre-season games against Arsenal, Bayern Munich and Inter Milan but becomes the latest of a long line of loaned out players.
Players such as Ruben-Loftus Cheek and Kurt Zouma are the highest profile players out on loan but Pasalic is seemingly highly rated at the club.
With Spartak also winning the Russian Premier League title last season, a season of defending a title and Champions League football will no doubt be valuable.
Not only that, with a world cup year coming up, no player will be looking to spend the season on the bench and Pasalic is not any different.
Congratulations and good luck at Spartak Moscow, Mario! https://t.co/eZ2D81Shr1

Chelsea outcast Diego Costa has been talked about for 8 months now with his future always in doubt.
The player has never seen eye to eye with Antonio Conte and that came to a head during the end of the season.
Conte texted the player to let him know that he was not in his plans for the upcoming season and that he would need to look for a new club.
That lead to a very angry Diego who has since been looking for his next move with Atletico Madrid still under a transfer ban.
One club has come to the forefront as a potential short-term option and that could leave to a move this summer.
