Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern were shocked this morning when one punter pointed out an interesting story in The Guardian, which states the Blues could lose a vast number of crucial players this year.
With the likely lack of Champions League football next season beginning to take effect, Chelsea are at huge risk of seeing some of their biggest players walk as they seek to continue plying their trade at the pinnacle of European competition.
It makes a daunting task for the next Chelsea boss even more challenging, as Chelsea need a massive shake-up to their underperforming squad this summer- and the loss of key-players could end up leading to a huge squad overhaul.
Chelsea fans are concerned that losing these key-players will leave them significantly short heading into the next campaign and that they will be unable to replace their biggest names, with the potential losses of Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois being particularly distressing.
As one fan pointed out though, this could just be the beginning of their downfall as he’s identified five other players he expects to be leaving imminently.
