Chelsea has sacked two key players from squad

Brazilian David Luiz and Englishman Gary Cahill will not be a part of Sarri’s future plans for Chelsea.

Reports floating around in Italy claim that both defenders could be axed from Sarri’s backline.

Cahill has yet to play for the Blues this season and has been heavily rumoured with an exit from the club in January.

Luiz on the other hand, who surprisingly was left out of Conte’s last season squad after a suspected ruckus with the Italian, is back in the Blues defensive line.

But Sarri, 56, will not stick with both veteran defender albeit their well of experience.

The Blues are already on the hunt for their replacement and have reportedly handpicked their favourites.

AC Milan duo Mattia Caldara and Alessio Romagnoli have reportedly both been linked with a January move to Stamford Bridge.

Caldara recently joined the Rossoneri and prizing him out of San Siro means the Blues will have to slap a huge buy-out fee for him.

Meanwhile, Romagnoli who joined Milan in 2015 from Roma, has three years left on his contract at the Italian outfit.

Chelsea changed from their traditional back three under Conte in his two-year spell at the club to a four.

Brazilian Luiz racked up only 10 appearances under Conte last season, but has so far featured four times under Sarri.

He has a total of 47 Premier League appearances for the Blues since reuniting with the club in 2016 from Paris Saint-Germain, while Cahill has 189.
