The Times says the Brazilian plans to trim his 30-man squad to 25 but will take all of his players on the club's four-match tour to China, Malaysia and Russia, with a view to assessing their ability.

Juliano Belletti, Tal Ben-Haim, Claudio Pizarro and Andriy Shevchenko are most under threat but are unlikely to command significant transfer fees, with Shaun Wright-Phillips rated as Chelsea's most saleable asset.
