Under-fire Chelsea boss, Jose Mourinho is planning to offload four of his major players that won the English Premier League title for him last season.
These players are Eden Hazard, Oscar, Nemanja Matic and Diego Costa, and he will be hoping that his newly acquired players can help liberate the EPL defending champions come January.
Chelsea are comfortably sitting on the 16th position on the log following their abysmal performance since the league kicked off in August this year.
The Chelsea boss has reportedly asked owner Roman Abramovich to trust him in getting the football club out of their terrible run of form, meanwhile, the Russian billionaire is hoping he could lure Ronaldo away from the Bernabau following the recent rancor with coach Rafael Benitez.
However, the same paper reports that both John Obi Mikel and Cesc Fabregas are likely to stay with the club, which may come as a surprise.
Mikel is seen as a good utility player by Mourinho whilst Fabregas, who has been a shade of his former self since December, can play in a number of roles.
