There’s talk of players coming in and out Chelsea in the Saturday papers.
One player being linked with the Stamford Bridge exit door, despite Mourinho saying no strikers would be sold in January, is Demba Ba.
The forward has made little impression on the Chelsea side since Mourinho’s summer return to the club, and the Sun’s (subscription) Andrew Dillon says West Ham are plotting a move in January.
Per Dillon’s piece, West Ham co-owner David Sullivan has made a personal appeal to Ba to return to a club he played for earlier in his career.
Another player potentially heading out of the Stamford Bridge, according to the Star’s Nick Lustig, is David Luiz.
Lustig claims the Blues are ready to let the defender leave for Barcelona in January.
If Luiz leaves, who will replace him?
That question could well be answered by the Mirror’s John Cross who claims Chelsea are ready to rival Manchester City for Real Madrid centre-back Sergio Ramos.
Cross suggests Ramos is ready to move on after failing to secure a bumper new contract following the arrival of Gareth Bale.
