Going via all of them, here’s what I in my view would do.
Thiago Silva – KEEP
I actually don’t even desire a 2d to consider my verdict right here.
Kurt Zouma – KEEP
Zouma has long gone from being a useless cert beneath Frank Lampard, to most likely extra of a squad participant beneath Thomas Tuchel. For me, I fee Zouma as a defender and consider he’s wanted on this squad nonetheless and is a better choice than Rudiger and Christensen.
Antonio Rudiger – SELL
Tuchel turns out to love him, and I believe he no doubt has his strengths. However I additionally really feel he would generate just right cash now he’s taking part in once more to promote him this summer season. Nonetheless has too many essential mistakes in his sport for me, time to promote.
Andreas Christensen – SELL
Performed neatly ultimate couple of fits and credit score to him, however I simply don’t assume he’s going to ever be the defender we’d like him to be and prefer Rudiger, he’s going to generate a just right price this summer season.
Fikayo Tomori – KEEP
If Milan don’t use their possibility to shop for, then Fikayo must completely be again in our squad for subsequent season, he’s greater than just right sufficient.
Marc Guehi – LOAN (or stay if Milan purchase Tomori)
Premier League mortgage is the best subsequent step, but when Tomori is bought then carry him again in to our first staff squad as a substitute, as a result of he’s completely just right sufficient already.
Ethan Ampadu – SELL (with an possibility to shop for again)
Difficult choice right here, Ampadu is a high quality participant and I nonetheless have absolute religion that he’s going to make it at some of the most sensible golf equipment, I’m simply no longer fully positive it’ll be Chelsea. A smart promote with an possibility to shop for again could be a smart decision right here I believe.
That may then depart Chelsea with their 4 centre again choices for subsequent season as Thiago Silva, Kurt Zouma, Fikayo Tomori/Guehi, and a brand new signing.
Additionally it is value remembering that if Tuchel principally comes to a decision to stay the use of a again 3, there may be Cesar Azpilicueta and Reece James who each are available as choices as neatly, and they’re clearly each assists in keeping!
I’ll depart you all to discuss who could be the most suitable choice as the brand new signing!
