Roman's war chest is now open with a staggering £100 for Jose Mourinho to play with. What players will come and go this summer? We will see.
Florent Malouda, Yossi Benayoun, Henrique Hilario, Ross Turnbull and Paulo Ferreira will all be shown the door. Nothing much to see here, guys put in their time and helped the team, but none of them are of any use to us now.
Kevin de Bruyne - Borussia Dortmund
de Bruyne could probably play here with Mazacar, but I think he could be a useful bargaining chip with Borussia. In return for a season long loan, we'd sign Neven Subotic.
Thibaut Courtois - Atletico Madrid
I don't think it is necessary for Courtois to play in the Premier League to gain experience, as the game is not that different. He is comfortable at Atletico and one more season there for him will be fine. After next season, I see him as the starter to replace Cech, who could be sold for a good chunk of money.
Marko Marin - Newcastle United
I think Marin has some great skill, but I want to see if he has the talent for the Premier League. I'd send him to a team like Newcastle that has come skill and a place he'd get some good playing time. After next season, depending on how he does, I'd look to work him into the rotation or sell him off.
Michael Essien - £6.5
The Bison is no longer the player he once was due to knee injuries, and while he is still a good squad player as shown on his loan spell at Real Madrid, he may be a surplus to requirements at the Bridge.
John Obi Mikel - £14.5
Obi Mikel is a good defensive midfielder, but he really does not do much for me. He lacks offense to say the least and his game doesn't really fit into the Chelsea squad. They need a deep lying midfielder to can break play up and dish it forward, and Mikel lacks that skill.
Ryan Bertrand - £4.5
Bertrand is valuable in that he can play both left back and left wing, but he hasn't shown enough to warrant being Ashley Cole's replacement in the future.
Gael Kakuta - £3.5
The next Thierry Henry can finally find his way with another team. He played decent during his loan with Vitesse, and while I'd love for the chance for him to show us what he has, I think it's time to move on.
Total Proceeds from Sales: £29
War Chest: £100
Total Amount to Spend: £129
Wayne Rooney - Manchester United - £28
An audacious transfer from Chelsea. They have shown interest in Rooney before when he requested a transfer way back, and he would be the perfect fit to play up top in a 4-4-2 formation if Mourinho uses that. He still has the capability to be the best striker in the Premier League and he'll not longer have to play second fiddle to Robin van Persie. I think a duo of Torres and Rooney would be excellent, since Torres has played much better as a poacher and not the lone striker.
Luke Shaw - Southampton - £13.5
Shaw has the potential to become the best left back in the world one day, and at 17 is already a regular in the Southampton starting XI. He would follow the recent transfer policy of Chelsea and he'd be an excellent replacement for Ryan Bertrand this season and Ashley Cole the season after.
Andre Schurrle - Bayer Leverkusen - £22
Schurrle has been a guy on Chelsea's radar for a long time, and he is an ideal winger for Chelsea. He has great pace and a good finishing touch. He is definitely an upgrade from Victor Moses and he can also play striker.
Neven Subotic - Borussia Dortmund - £30
Subotic is only 24, and is one of the best center defenders in the world. I'd use de Bruyne as a chip to sign Subotic who would form a excellent center pairing of him and Terry or Luiz. This guy is a beast.
Luka Modric - Real Madrid - £30
Modric was the man on the radar for two season until he left Tottenham for Real. Modric could follow Mourinho to Chelsea and play the part of the deep lying defensive midfielder we've been coveting. Also would pay less than the rumored price last year.
Robert Green - QPR - £1
Or any other somewhat decent English goalkeeper who can keep the bench warm.
