Stamford Bridge side set for big changes in the upcoming transfer window.
Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is ready to make ‘wholesale’ changes to his Stamford Bridge squad in the January transfer window as he seeks to strengthen his squad after a shaky start to the season.
Sports Direct News claims that the Blues manager has earmarked moves to sell a trio of under-performing talents to make way for three world class talents he hopes will reinvigorate his side ahead of an all out push for major honours in his first season back at the West London club.
After one to many poor displays Mourinho will now listen to good offers for Brazilian David Luiz, with Barcelona said to be keen on the defender.
One would imagine that the 26 year old would fetch a fairly high price in January and seemingly set to join Luiz on a path to a Chelsea exit are bit-part attacker Kevin de Bruyne and surplus to requirements striker Demba Ba.
The pair have made just four Premier League starts between them this season and Mourinho can well afford to see the pair leave without having too much of an affect on his overall first team set-up.
Belgian De Bruyne offered a great deal of promise and there was a reasonable amount of excitement about his being drafted into the Chelsea squad after a successful loan spell at Werder Bremen last term but in truth the youngster has looked out of his depth when he has been called upon.
Demba Ba finds himself behind Fernando Torres, Samuel Eto’o and Andre Schurrle in the striking pecking order and may well be tempted by a fresh challenge.
