Juan Cuadrado, Mohamed Salah and Patrick Bamford the ones likely to leave
Chelsea are likely to sell just three players this Summer despite ongoing reports of a mass exodus at Stamford Bridge.
The Blues just won their fourth Premier League title and it was expected that Jose Mourinho would make some big sales before making big signings, similar to what he did last year.
However, according to the latest reports, only three players will be leaving The Bridge over the Summer.
Not for Sale
There have been reports that Filipe Luis and Oscar could be set to quit the club, with the former feeling homesick and the latter losing the trust of Mourinho after his tendency to fall away during the second half of seasons.
Despite the reports, those two players are not considered for sale by Chelsea.
Players Up for Sale
The ones that are up for sale are wingers Juan Cuadrado and Mohamed Salah, as well as young striker Patrick Bamford.
According to reports, Cuadrado and Salah could be set for moves to Serie A, whilst Bamford could be in line for a permanent move to Sunderland.
Cuadrado only joined Chelsea in January from Fiorentina, in a deal that saw Salah go in the opposite direction on a short-term loan basis, but the Colombian has failed to impress during his short stay in West London.
The winger spent most of the time on the bench, but failed to impress when given game-time and it’s believed Mourinho is already willing to sell him despite promising Chelsea fans that next season would be the real Cuadrado.
As for Salah, despite an impressive loan spell away in Italy, it’s clear the Egyptian has no future at Chelsea and he is also likely to leave on a permanent basis.
Another star that has had a good loan spell this season is Bamford. The young striker was at Middlesbrough for the campaign and despite having a good season, he won’t be given a chance at Chelsea.
Despite scoring 19 goals and winning Championship Player of the Year, Bamford’s long-term future is seemingly away from Stamford Bridge.
