It was a relatively uneventful Deadline Day in the Premier League, as most of the fireworks came late Monday night when David De Gea’s move to Real Madrid fell through.
Despite the lack of movement in England, one number started making the rounds that was quite an eye-opener: 33. That’s the number of players Chelsea currently have loaned out across the planet:

That’s bigger than most squads!
Included is Juan Cuadrado, a player Chelsea just paid £22 million for in the past winter transfer window.
