This is just a post of how I would like Chelsea to start integrating the youth into the first team and who Chelsea should buy to address our immediate needs for the oncoming season. Potential formation, line-up, ins and outs after the jump:
????/Ivanović - Terry/Cahill - Luiz - Cole/Bertrand
Essien/Obi Mikel/Romeu – Lampard/?Meireles?/McEachran
Ramires/Sturridge – Mata/Piazón – ?Kalou?/De Bruyne/Kakuta
New Players to Buy: Right Back (Samuel Inkoom or Cesar Azpilicueta), Creative attacking midfielder/winger (Lucas Moura, Eden Hazard)
For me , a right back is a must buy for next season, it has been a problem area for a long time and should be addressed. As for Didier Drogba, Raul Meireles, Salomon Kalou they could all have a place (especially Drogba) in the team as squad players to allow for youth development. I think we would also need a left winger (or a versatile attacking midfielder).
Players In: Eden Hazard, Lucas Moura, César, Samuel Inkoom
