José Bosingwa, who cost Chelsea £16.2 million, is finally gone after four years of cringeworthy defending.
Salomon Kalou was content with warming the bench as opposed to fighting for his position. He'll be leaving Stamford Bridge too.
Chelsea need to sell and replace Michael Essien, Florent Malouda, Raul Meireles, Yossi Benayoun, Ross Turnbull and Henrique Hilário.
Essien: It's unfortunate that injuries have debilitated his career. His stats of 1.5 tackles and 0.9 interceptions per game are as anemic as it gets for a ball-winning midfielder.
Malouda: 17.5 shots per goal and not enough through balls.
Meireles: Doesn't win back possession enough, doesn't orchestrate play and isn't a playmaker. He's just a mediocre midfielder, so sell him to whichever club André Villas-Boas ends up at because the Portuguese manager rates Meireles quite highly.
Benayoun: A class act but doesn't have a future at Chelsea.
Turnbull: Terrible goalkeeper. Chelsea used to have the best starting-and-backup-goalkeeper combination in the world with Petr Čech and Carlo Cudicini.
Hilário: What's the point in having a non-homegrown goalkeeper as third choice?
