Chelsea want Hiddink to sell five major stars in clearout

Guus Hiddink will oversee a major squad overhaul at Chelsea should he take the job. The Guardian says Chelsea are to seek to agree a compensation package with the Turkish Football Federation to extricate the 64-year-old from the final year of his contract in Istanbul.

Chelsea will attempt to shed as many as five senior players this summer - the youth-team product Jacopo Sala has joined Michael Mancienne in following the former sporting director Frank Arnesen to Hamburg - and intend to make eye?catching signings of their own as they build on the £73.1m purchases of Fernando Torres and David Luiz in January.

The hope is that Hiddink will help implement those changes as manager, though he could yet adopt a role as director of football in the future.
