Chelsea to sell in summer before buying

Chairman Bruce Buck says the Blues are likely to make changes to their playing staff at the end of the season...

According to a report in the British tabloid The Daily Mirror, Chelsea are prepared to cash-in on as many as five first-team players at the end of the season.

It is though that the Blues are hoping to trim the average age of their squad, with Didier Drogba, Michael Ballack, Deco, Florent Malouda and Alex thought to be most likely to leave Stamford Bridge.

"We haven't properly got together to talk about summer transfers yet but I think that we could expect that several players will leave and that several players will come in," chairman Bruce Buck is quoted as saying in The Daily Mirror.

"I don't know whether that is three, four or five, but something in that kind of neighbourhood. We can expect a handful to leave.

"We'd like to use internally generated cash to buy new players and by that I mean sell players and buy new players. But, of course, if an appropriate player comes then money would be available from the owner to buy him."
