Six players that Jose Mourinho should allow to leave Chelsea if they are to avoid a repeat of the trophyless 2013/14 season.
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho was disappointed with his side’s failure to claim any silverware at Stamford Bridge last season, meaning that changes are inevitable at the club this summer.
The Blues are expected to complete a deal for Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa in the coming days, whilst numerous other players have been linked with a move to Chelsea.
This means that Mourinho is going to have to find space in his squad for the new arrivals, with these six amongst the players that he should be looking to move on.
6. Petr Cech
Despite being of the world’s best goalkeepers, Petr Cech’s place at Chelsea is under threat due to the emergence of Thibaut Courtois.
The Belgian had another superb season for Atletico Madrid, including during the Champions League semi-final against Chelsea, but he is growing impatient with being stuck behind Cech at Stamford Bridge.
With Courtois arguably being better than Cech already and considerably younger, Mourinho could make the decision to let Cech go and ensure that Courtois doesn’t look to leave.
