Chelsea interim manager Guus Hiddink has said the club doesn't have to sell players to bring others in.
Speaking at his pre-match press conference ahead of the their clash with Chelsea, as reported by the Daily Mirror, Hiddink has said that any transfers may have to take into account both the club's poor league position of 14th, and the new manager that is expected to arrive in the summer, whoever that may be.
He also said that Loic Remy - who has been constantly linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge - is back in full training with the rest of the team.
He said: "I’m happy that Remy is now working a full week with high intensity, and if needed he can be on the pitch. That’s good. As long as this is happening, we are not very active in doing other things.”
“Chelsea has to deal with that realistic view (of uncertainty over league position). In the new setting there might be influence of the new staff, new manager, etc. That’s our question marks for Chelsea, and for those who might come in.”
Hididnk has said that Eden Hazard is still sidelined for tomorrow's clash against Everton but could be available for next week's trip to Arsenal.
Radamel Falcao also remains on the sidelines but Hiddink has spoken about the urgent need for the Colombian to get some game time under his belt when possible.
“Well for him, it’s important to play. He need to start playing. If you see his recent path, here and in Manchester United, it is difficult for a player, he must look for circumstances where he can play.”
In terms of the club's striker situation as a whole, Hiddink said: "We now have Diego (Costa), Remy and some youngsters who can fill up the gap, we are not in that at the moment.”
“With Falcao, it is different. The reason they don’t take him back is injury-wise."
