Mourinho plans to bomb out FIVE senior Chelsea stars

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho plans to bomb out FIVE senior stars this summer. The Daily Star says Ashley Cole, striker Romelu Lukaku, Brazil international David Luiz and holding midfielder John Obi Mikel are also on their way out.

And with owner Roman Abramovich under pressure from financial fairplay rules he is insisting Mourinho has to balance the books if he wants to buy big this summer.

That means others could also follow, with stalwarts John Terry and Frank Lampard out of contract this summer and yet to be offered new deals.

So too is Samuel Eto'o and with this trio, around £22m-a-year could be saved from the wage bill.

Petr Cech is also under scrutiny, with Thibaut Courtois, on-loan with Atletico Madrid, breathing down his neck all the way from Spain.
