You would have been forgiven for forgetting that Baba Rahman is still a Chelsea player.
Since joining from Augsburg in 2015, the Ghana international has made just 23 appearances for the south-west London outfit, none of which have come in the last three years. Instead, he has spent time on loan at Schalke and Stade Reims.
In all fairness, he has been dogged by injury issues, but he has never appeared to be in the plans of any manager at Stamford Bridge. As such, he has once again moved for a short-term spell, this time to RCD Mallorca in La Liga.
If Frank Lampard fails, would Chelsea fans welcome Jose Mourinho back for a third time? Find out in the video below…
Not before signing a new contract extension with his employers, though. The 25-year-old will now be with the Blues until 2022, and this has perplexed the Blues fans. Many have questioned why he has been offered a new deal, and they have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts. You can check out some of the best comments below.

Why offer him a new contract? Don’t understand this loaning business from Chelsea.

What’s the point of this? Why do we keep giving contract extensions to players just to loan them out?

1 year contract extension for Baba.. dont know him personally but hes not good enough so why have we extended his contract!? Has to be business related as it doesnt make sense otherwise
