This has been a remarkable rebuilding year for Chelsea but there's still work to be done. I will outline what I would like to see happen.
On Loan Players To Sell: Patrick van Aanholt (3mil), Romeu (2.5), Marin (5), Moses (7), McEachran (4 with buyback clause of 10), and Bertrand (7-10). Total: 28.5-31.5
On Loan Players to Recall: Lukaku, Courtois, Zouma, Bamford, Piazon, Thorgan
Current Squad Players to Sell: Mikel (10), Torres (10), Ba (5), Luiz (30-40)*, Ivanovic (15)**. Total: 70-80. Net Take: 98.5-111.5
Players To Buy: Costa (40), Shaw (35), Gundogan (35), Mangala (30). Total Spend 140. Net Gross: 28.5-41.5
Premier League Squad*** 18 players count against. 4 homegrown.
GK-Chech, Curtois, Blackman (U21)
D-Shaw (U21), Mangala, Azpi, Zouma (U21), Terry (H), Cahill (H), Ake (U21) Kalas (U21)
M-Gundogan, Matic, Lampard (H), Ramires, Van Ginkel, Hazard, Oscar, Piazon (U21), Thorgan, Willian, Salah, Shurrle
ST- Costa, Lukaku (H)****, Bamford (H)
Starting XI (4-2-3-1) GK-Courtois, LB-Shaw, CB-Cahill, CB-Zouma, RB-Azpi, M-Gundogan, M-Matic, LM-Hazard, CAM-Oscar, RM-Willian St-Costa
Subs: Cech, Ramires, Terry/Kalas, Salah/Schurrle, Lukaku, Mangala
All values are million in pound sterling. All other loaned players will stay on the same loan.
* Depending on his performance at the WC I think Luiz could command a 40 million fee
** If we can't get that much for Ivanovic we shouldn't sell him
*** (U21) means the player will be under 21 or turning 21 during the season and doesn't count against the 25 player squad. (H) means the player is homegrown
**** Lukaku is a homegrown player because he's been registered under the FA for 3 full seasons prior to him turning 21
What do you think?
