When Chelsea are mentioned at the moment its Neymar this, Luka Modric that; but before players can come in, some needs to move on through the exit door. With Alex and Didier Drogba being mentioned to leave, who else should Chelsea get rid of?
Joining Bruma in a move should be Yuri Zhirkov. He was a great player for Russia in Euro 2008, and is still a great player when he starts. But with Ashley Cole in the way, it’s hard for Zhirkov to break through; therefore, the best move for him would be a transfer. This is, however, if Chelsea can keep hold of reserve left back Patrick Van Aarnholt, who looks one for the future.
Now for a midfield clearout, and a player who I’ve never been a fan of: John Obi Mikel. Again, a player who has seen more red cards then goals, the central midfielder has stiff competition with Michael Essien, Frank Lampard, Ramires and the potential signing of Luka Modric.
Overall, I would like to keep the likes of Zhirkov and Benayoun as they are influential players when the time is right. But as long as Chelsea holds onto the key youngsters, there is no room for these.
However, a player Chelsea should definitely keep is striker Daniel Sturridge. He had a terrific loan spell at Bolton Wanderers last season and is currently playing well in the Euro under-21’s for England. Danny and Fernando Torres would make a great future partnership!
