Chelsea’s owner Todd Boehly wouldn’t have well received the recent defeat of the Blues in the Carabao Cup Final against Jürgen Klopp’s Liverpool, which helped the Reds to conquer their 10th Carabao Cup title and left the West London club with only four trophies in the competition, still behind Manchester United (6) and Manchester City (8) in the competition.

However, this wouldn’t be the only problem faced by the Blues, who lost against Liverpool one of the few options they have in this season to qualify for European competitions, an aspect totally basic to balance the finances of the club and grant the possibilities of seducing the top players in the market with something else than lucrative offers.

In this sense, after having gotten totally disappointed with the performance of the Mauricio Pochettino’s team, Boehly would have decided to take massive decisions according to the The Telegraph, as Pochettino’s job would be now in risk in the same way that many players in the squad, who would be sold in the summer.

Following these sources, Boehly would have already developed a plan to raise at least £100 million in summer sales, with a list of several transferable assets to be sold headed by the Belgian 30-year-old striker Romelu Lukaku, who agreed to £37m release clause when he was sent to AS Rome on loan transfer.

Which players would Chelsea sell?

Alongside Lukaku, other man to leave the Blues would be Ian Maatsen, currently loaned to Borussia Dortmund and valued at £35 million, while the departure of other products of Chelsea’s academy such as Reece James or Conor Gallagher wouldn’t be discarded, aiming to raise at least £50 million for each one of them. In this same way, players like Trevoh Challobah or Armando Broja could exit to Bayern Munich and Fulham respectively, and Marc Cucurella and Kepa Arrizabalaga would be also considered to be sold in the summer transfer window.
