Danny Drinkwater, Alvaro Morata, and David Luiz are reportedly the three players that Maurizio Sarri will let go off when he takes up the Chelsea job.
With Antonio Conte’s future at Chelsea in certain jeopardy, there are a number of managers linked to taking up the job at Stamford Bridge. But the favorite person to take up that job is former Napoli boss Maurizio Sarri who is consistently linked with the job at Stamford Bridge.
The Italian mastermind is set to take over from his national compatriot Antonio Conte and has reportedly outlined the task that he needs to fulfill at hand. The 59-year-old has already identified seven players that he wants to sign at Chelsea but he has also planned for the omission for a few Chelsea stars.
Sarri’s Plan To Let Three Players Leave-
Players that have not performed well or featured too often for Chelsea this season will be allowed to leave the club as Sarri’s arrival will trigger the departures for Alvaro Morata, David Luiz, and Danny Drinkwater.
Morata has struggled at Chelsea with his debut season in England and is rumored to leave the club as he has fallen further down the pecking order with Olivier Giroud’s arrival from Arsenal in the January transfer window.
Luiz did not feature for Chelsea after he criticized his manager Antonio Conte’s tactics and will reportedly not be part of Sarri’s plans as well when he takes over as Chelsea boss.
Drinkwater is another midfielder who hasn’t been able to make much of an impact at Chelsea since his move from Leicester City. N’golo Kante, Tiemoue Bakayoko, and Cesc Fabregas provide too much competition in the center of the pitch for a starting berth for the Englishman.
Davide Zappacosta and Willian are also linked with a move away from Chelsea with Inter Milan and Manchester United respectively keen on the two Chelsea men.
Sarri seems to have drawn out his plan quite well but executing his plan will be more difficult because there will be a lot of competition in the transfer market. Even with the incoming players, Sarri needs to make sure that his players are given the green light by the Chelsea transfer board.
