Are Chelsea a team in transition?
Manager Jose Mourinho has made no bones about the club's mandatory requirement for a netbusting striker and there are other problem areas too, including full-back.
After Atletico Madrid beat Chelsea 3-1 on the night and on aggregate, as the West London side crashed out of the Champions League semifinal, the club's fan-base discussed who should be sold in the upcoming summer market.
While some Twitter users were swift to nominate who they would axe, there were few who actually put forth a candidate for a transfer into the club.
Petr Cech, Mark Schwarzer, Hilario, Ashley Cole, Ryan Bertrand, Gael Kakuta, Ramires, Samuel Eto'o, Romelu Lukaku and Demba Ba would all be put on the transfer market if the Twitter-based Chelsea fans were in charge, while Thibaut Courtois, Diego Costa and Alberto Moreno were the three names suggested for importing.
Who would you sell and who would you buy? Let us know…
Given Club's policy on players above 30 years, release Cech and Schwazar. Recall Courtois and promote Blackman #CFC— Daniel Ombajo (@Paapa__) April 30, 2014
And then sell Kakuta, Eto'o, Schwarzer, Hilario, As.Cole, Lukaku (if necessary), Ba (if necessary), Bertrand (if needed). #CFC— Rendy Adrista (@renskyyft) April 30, 2014
Tasks for next season: Sell Ramires, get back Courtois and buy a good striker #CFC— NIKHIL GUPTA (@_Ddarkknight) April 30, 2014
Bring back Wallace, Piazon, Courtois, Bamford, Van Aanholt, Zouma, and Marin. Buy Costa and Moreno. #CFC— Rendy Adrista (@renskyyft) April 30, 2014
