Top 5 Chelsea Players Who May Get Sacrificed To Fund Diego Costa Transfer

With Mourinho planning for surgical changes to the team in Summer and with latest rumors suggesting that Chelsea are set to seal a 50 million deal to sign Atlético Madrid striker Diego Costa, we look at the top 5 players who may get sold in Summer in-order to fund the transfer fee for the Spanish striker and to reduce the wage bill.

5. Samuel Eto’o


The Cameroon international centre forward would be out of contract in the summer and there have been no talks of a contract extension. Mourinho had also said that he would have liked Eto’o to stay but the Cameroonian himself wants to move on and enjoy his last stages of his career in a smaller and easier league. But recently there have been rumours about Inter interested in luring him to the San Siro.

All the rumours and press conferences have pointed towards Eto’o playing out his 1 year deal and moving on. Eto’o has had a decent scoring season so far having scored 11 goals in all competitions including a hattrick against fierce rivals Manchester United. But all his 11 goals have been at home.
