Abramovich maps out radical Chelsea overhaul with Emenalo

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich and technical chief Michael Emenalo has mapped out their way forward - without the club's 'old guard'. The Mirror says Abramovich is overseeing the plans personally, signing off on contracts and having the final say on the incomings and departures.

But there will be no room for sentiment, and Didier Drogba, Frank Lampard and Ashley Cole are all under threat.

Salomon Kalou, Raul Meireles and Jose Bosingwa could also be heading for the exit, and there are questions over captain John Terry's long-term prospects.

The new plans are so well developed­ that Abramovich and Emenalo have even outlined a style of play, a 4-3-3 formation and attractive philosophy into which all players are expected to fit.
