It’s still the International break and the media won’t stop giving sound bites to what is happening in the world of football. In about another 10 league games, we will be at the halfway point of the season. Definitely, club managers will be assessing their squads to know how to improve on them. Chelsea is no exception as Head Coach Maurizio Sarri would have identified areas of his team that needs greater quality.
With this in mind, here are 3 players Chelsea can afford to sell:
The English defender was successor to John Terry’s status as captain, but has seen his influence wane under Maurizio Sarri even with regards to the captaincy and his game time. One major issue has been his inconsistency and lack of pace which could be exposed in Sarri’s highline defensive style of play, with emphasis placed on the defenders being the first leaders of attack. With Antonio Rudiger and David Luiz being Sarri’s preferred central defensive partnership, and with only cup games for Cahill to play in, the time might be right for Chelsea to cash in on him. More so, with Ethan Ampadu, Kurt Zouma (on loan) and Andreas Christensen waiting in the wings, Chelsea have enough replacements for Cahill.
It won’t be a surprise if many Chelsea fans have forgotten him to be a player at the club as the England midfielder has not featured this season and is on the fringes of the first team. His omission from the club’s Europa league squad was another indication that his time at the club is over. The future of the 28-year-old midfielder at Chelsea looks very bleak and it’s only a matter of time that he will be sold.
From being a regular starter to being a fringe player now looking to play in cup games and get playing time as a sub is the new story of Victor Moses at Chelsea. The winger turned wing-back by Conte is back to the status quo as a fringe player. With the likes of Eden Hazard, Willian and Pedro all above him in the pecking order as well as the emergence of academy youth product Callum Hudson-Odoi, the end might just be near for the Nigerian.
What do you think? Is it time for Chelsea to cash in on them? Have your say in the comments zone. Cheers!
