Demba Ba faces being dumped by new Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho.

The Mirror says Ba will be a ­surprise casualty of ­Mourinho's return to ­Chelsea unless he can dramatically change his new manager's mind.

Chelsea will listen to offers for Ba, even though he only signed for £7million from Newcastle in January.

Chelsea know they can make a healthy profit on Ba, having signed the 28-year-old on the cheap because of a clause in his Newcastle contract.

And there would be no shortage of takers from home and abroad, with Liverpool and Paris Saint-Germain known admirers.
