Jose Mourinho suggested last week that Chelsea's transfer business was done for the summer, only for the Blues to re-sign legend Didier Drogba on a free transfer a few days later.
It was a moment that proved we should never trust the words of a shrewd operator like the Chelsea boss, who was quoted by Sky Sports:
I have to say my club did a fantastic job, and not just because of what we bought, but because we did it in almost record time. The transfer market closes 31 August and we close our market on July 19. We finished the market today.
The club did fantastic, we knew the targets, we knew the players and the club attacked them and their clubs at a very early stage.
We got exactly what we need and what we want. The squad is one which I like very much and I look forward to starting the season.
Assuming Drogba's return is the end of Chelsea's transfer dealings, it doesn't mean players should not be sold.
After all, the Chelsea squad is rammed full of talent and it's going to be difficult for the Blues boss to keep all of his stars happy.
Mourinho needs to trim the fat, so with that in mind, Bleacher Report highlights five players who should face the manager's axe.
