Both these sides could make a realistic push for Champions League qualification…

If the multiple transfer rumours surrounding Chelsea are to be believed, manager Jose Mourinho could have an unbelievable squad to choose from ahead of next season.
Here’s two totally different sides he could theoretically put out – with players like Tomas Kalas, Lucas Piazon, John Obi Mikel, Thorgan Hazard, Victor Moses, Fernando Torres and Marko Marin failing to even make the reserve XI!
Obviously, some of these players could well be sold when new players are signed – but barring four imminent arrivals, these 22 stars are all currently all on Chelsea’s books.
GK) Thibaut Courtois
The Belgian starred for Atletico on loan last term, proving himself to be one of the very best in the world. The Blues would be foolish not let him prove himself at Stamford Bridge after three seasons out on loan.
DR) Cesar Azpilicueta
If Felipe Luis arrives, Azpilicueta could switch to his more naturally favoured right-back spot.
DC) Gary Cahill
Chelsea’s first-choice defensive pairing of Cahill and Terry will likely remain as it is – after ending last term with the least goals conceded in the Premier League.
DC) John Terry
Chelsea’s skipper is ageing, but he proved last term that he’s more than good enough to play at the top level for a few more years yet.
DL) Felipe Luis
The Brazilian is free to sign for Chelsea now Atletico Madrid have secured his replacement Guilherme Siqueira. Luis was phenomenal last term as his side won La Liga – and would replace the departing Ashley Cole – who’s leaving on a free -in the squad.
