Chelsea players on loan is part of the training and business model at Chelsea so we should see several Chelsea FC players who will go out on loan this summer 2020. At the same time we should also expect several players to be sold by Chelsea.
So here we will look at the Top 5 Chelsea players to be sold this summer 2020.
5. Danny Drinkwater – Chelsea players to be sold
Danny Drinkwater could be sold to West Ham
The English midfielder could be sold after two disappointing seasons with Chelsea and another horrible six months at Burnley. The Englishman made a £35 million move to Chelsea prior to the 2017/18 season. But he had an injury in training which meant he didn’t play for the first month. Following that, Conte tried to integrate him into the team by playing him with fellow former Leicester midfielder N’Golo Kante but it didn’t really work. Since making a few appearances, Drinkwater disappeared again- through injury.
He has not played for the past few months at all last year in 2019. Chelsea could look to try get most of their money back for him though. West Ham have been reportedly keen on signing him and they fancy their chances as the Englishman has been frustrated with being left on the bench or not even included in the bench in some games since he came back from injury.
Drinkwater started just five premier league games for Chelsea last season and he has to go down as a flop signing. He had been told by Sarri that he will never play for the Italian.
After that Lampard came in and took charge. He tried playing Drinkwater but it was to no avail. Eventually he was loaned out to Burnley. Over there as well, he did not fare well and ended up being left on the sidelines.
4. Tiemoue Bakayoko – Chelsea players to be sold
It’s no secret that Tiemoue Bakayoko has had a very poor season for Chelsea last time. The 25-year-old has looked out of his depth in the Premier League and has clearly not adapted to the league at all.
Additionally, the Frenchman has made some costly mistakes in games leading to goals. Bakayoko was very poor in the Watford game earlier in the season. After he was sent off in the first-half, Chelsea fans sang “You’re fu***ing s**t”. I will never condone fans singing that at our own players but it shows how bad he has been for Chelsea.
The Blues could look to recuperate some of the £40 million they spent on the former Monaco player. And there will be some suitors including Monaco.
Last season he was in AC Milan where he was enjoying his football and hasd played well. He has requested Milan bosses to sign him permanently but it all came crashing down as he fell apart with the club towards the end of the season.
AC Milan ended up not signing Bakayoko. He came back to Chelsea and was again loaned out to the French club from where he came, AS Monaco. He is now back there and not playing so bad. However, we at Chelsea should not think about bringing him back from loan. Instead try and get him sold permanently.
3. Pedro – Chelsea players to be sold
This may be an unorthodox pick. Pedro hasn’t been particularly bad for Chelsea this season but he hasn’t been spectacular either. The Spaniard has failed to replicate the form he showed in the 2016/17 season when Chelsea won the title. This has cost him a place in the team this season and he has been on the bench for most of it with Willian being added to the team regularly. Additionally, Pedro has been poor when he has come on in matches but has scored some crucial goals so he still gets the occasional start.
The 32-year-old winger is also getting old and will surely lose some of his agility and pace as he ages. It could be wise for Chelsea to cash in on him before it’s too late and his value drops. Chelsea need to invest in a new winger in my opinion for next season. Pedro should be the one that makes room for that to happen.
Well unfortunately for Chelsea, there don’t seem to be a lot of big clubs interested in him. His poor form this season along with his age has meant interest in him has waned.
But Chelsea could include Pedro in a swap-deal including cash for a bigger star if they could have gotten him to sign an extension. Latest deals do point that AS Roma want him. As of now, he has confirmed he will leave the club for free.
2. Olivier Giroud – Chelsea players to be sold
He is a brilliant player who has won the World Cup. He has helped Chelsea win the Europa League last season.
However, Giroud’s time at Chelsea has come to an end. He is an old player, someone who does not fit the system of Lampard. Instead of wasting his career, he should also move on as he still has a lot to offer other clubs.
Chelsea can use his money to buy other players. For now, the club has triggered a one-year extension on his clause.
1. Marcos Alonso – Chelsea players to be sold
The Spaniard is excess to the bills. He does not suit the 3 men or the 4 men back. He cannot defend, he cannot cover ground quickly nor can he run back fast. He is a complete liability to Chelsea at the moment.
Chelsea need to move him on and maybe sell him to Inter Milan where his old boss Antonio Conte wants him. It would be a good deal for us.
