Chelsea boss Sarri: More must follow Zouma, Batshuayi out exit

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri says more players will soon follow Kurt Zouma and Michy Batshuayi out the exit door.

Sarri will allow some fringe players to go.

The Italian admits he wants to make some cuts and said: "Now I think the squad is too large, so I think some players have to go on loan. But I don't know who at the moment. I prefer to have 23 / 24 players, and three or four very young players. No more."

Talks between AC Milan and Chelsea over Tiemoue Bakayoko are ongoing as they have yet to agree a loan fee or how much it will cost if AC include an option to buy.

But pressed on whether the France international will leave, Sarri said: “Maybe, I don't know at this moment. Maybe. You have to ask the club at this moment. I want to think only about the match in these days."
