There are claims of a split at Chelsea over transfer policy.

The Mail on Sunday says Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich and manager Jose Mourinho are at odds over the players the team requires.

"He's gone for a certain type," said an observer with close links to the club. "Mata, Oscar, Hazard, Willian, Schurrle. Even Luiz and Azpilicueta. These are players who want to play.

"But Jose has sold Mata and Luiz might not be there much longer either. It's almost as if he is fighting against the philosophy Roman has tried to instil."
