Chelsea Players Sold
5. Alvaro Morata : Chelsea players sold
Alvaro Morato was happy to be loaned out to Atletico Madrid with offers from Sevilla and Barcelona not working out.
It’s no secret that the Spanish striker had struggled last season. And Chelsea usually don’t have much patience when it comes to strikers. The Blues finally sold Morata and getting their £60 million back. Read more at Chelsea have given green light to sending Alvaro Morata away for good. Atletico Madrid tried their best to get Morata for a low fee since Morata was never a striker who was their first choice.
However, Chelsea stayed strong and ended up getting what they wanted. He was finally sold in June 2019.
4. Danny Drinkwater : Chelsea players sold
The English midfielder could be sold after a disappointing few seasons with Chelsea. The Englishman made a £35 million move to Chelsea prior to the 2017/18 season. But he had an injury in training which meant he didn’t play for the first month. Following that, Conte tried to integrate him into the team by playing him with fellow former Leicester midfielder N’Golo Kante but it didn’t really work. Since making a few appearances, Drinkwater disappeared again- through injury.
Chelsea could look to try get most of their money back for him though. Even though the Englishman has been frustrated with being left on the bench or not even included in the bench in some games since he came back from injury it is believed Chelsea would not be short of suitors for the player who has a league title with Leicester City.
Drinkwater started just five premier league games for Chelsea last season and is yet to make a significant contribution this time around. He has to go down as a flop signing.
He went out on loan to Burnley back in Summer 2019. However, that move never worked out for the Clarets as Drinkwater got caught up in some really bad news with bar fights and all. He ended up playing only a handful of games for them before being sent back from loan.
He now has been moved on to Aston Villa who are looking for midfielders. Drinkwater made his debut on loan at Aston Villa in their 6-1 defeat to Manchester City.
However, although he has been on loan for a few days, Aston Villa might be the club who will take him finally.

3. Gary Cahill : Chelsea players sold
The Chelsea captain who has won everything with the club was on the sidelines more often than not. Former manager Sarri had made it clear that Cahill’s mind was not completely in the game and he could be headed out to work deals with other clubs like Fulham.
Cahill has won seven trophies including a glittering Champions League trophy in his debut season. The star player is getting old and lacks the technical flair Sarri demands in his defenders.
Finally in the summer after Cahill realised he will not getting back to the team, he moved on to London club Crystal Palace. At Palace, he started regularly for the team under Roy Hodgson.
It is a good deal for both parties.
2. David Luiz : Chelsea players sold
The smart Brazilian defender was a constant regular under Maurizio Sarri. When Lampard came in and wanted his system of starting from the back, everyone thought David Luiz would be a regular. Especially with Gary Cahill out of the team and Rudiger injured, Luiz’ position was all but guaranteed.
Lampard however, made the impossible call and sold Luiz. The Brazilian was a last minute sell in August to Arsenal. Chelsea made a decent profit on him and now seeing in hindsight that we have players like Tomori and Guehi and Zouma who have come up, we can tell it was a masterstroke from Frank Lampard.
1. Eden Hazard
The Belgian playmaker was the heart beat of the Chelsea team in the last 7-8 years. In fact ever since he joined, he was Chelsea’s best player. He has been amazing for the club and it was a huge loss for the club selling him. However, Chelsea had to sell him to Real Madrid since his heart was set on the move.
It was losing the best player and the league and the Blues had a transfer ban making it even tougher to replace him at the club. Chelsea did manage to harbor some young talent and talks are going on now if Philippe Coutinho can replace him at the club if signed. What do you think?
