Time's Up For The Chelsea Players Whose Contract Will Expired In 2019 With Todd Kane, Wily Caballero And Others chelses Could Sell For This Summer

For a long time it appeared manager Antonio Conte was going to leave, but he is still in charge as players report back for pre-season training.

A number of them are entering the final year of their contract and here, looks at six key men the Blues could decide to cash in on during this transfer window.

There are actually eight players whose contracts expire in 2019, with Todd Kane and Wily Caballero the others, according to

So, rather than risk losing them for nothing next year, will the club sell if they are unable to tie them down?
1. Thibaut Courtois
Courtois may be sold in the summer and the goalkeeper said he will mull over his options after the World Cup. He doesn’t seem closer to signing a new deal and considering he has been linked with a move to Real Madrid, the city where his kids live, he could be off.

2. Gary Cahill
What a steal Cahill has turned out to be. The Blues signed him from Bolton in 2012 for £7million and he could cash in on the 32-year-old this summer.

 “The majority of Chelsea fans have been unbelievable to me, but there is maybe an element of five per cent always thinking ‘get the next best thing in’ or ‘move him on’. I can feel that in a certain percentage,” he told the Telegraph in May. He still played 27 times last season, though the club may want to make some money from the trophy winning skipper. Fans will be sad to see him leave.

3. Olivier Giroud
Chelsea paid £18m for him in January and the striker signed an 18-month deal, so it appears he was always going to be a short term option.

 The club have been linked with Gonzalo Higuain and Robert Lewandowski already in this transfer window and when Giroud moved across London from Arsenal it was because he wasn’t getting enough minutes on the pitch.

4. Cesc Fabregas
Not many midfielders are better than him in possession of the ball, are they? If Conte stays then surely he will be sold, though. 

He’s still better than Ross Barkley, Danny Drinkwater and Tiemoue Bakayoko, isn’t he? And he has only just turned 31, so if Chelsea do sell him, then surely some top club will take a chance on him.

5. Pedro
Of his 31 Premier League appearances last season, 14 of them came as a substitute and it appears his best days are behind him. Like Fabregas, Pedro will be 31 when the new season starts.

 He joined Chelsea from Barcelona in 2015 and in June, said he is happy to stay. “Obviously I have a contract at Chelsea and most likely I will stay.

 I’m good here,” he told Spanish broadcaster Cadena Ser. “I’m very comfortable with my team-mates and, in football terms I’m very happy for having won the Premier League and the FA Cup in three years.

 I’m happy because it’s always difficult to win trophies in England,” he added.

6. David Luiz
He rarely played for the club during the second part of the season. A troublesome knee and Andreas Christensen didn’t help and quite possibly the club could cash in on the defender, who if injury free, would be a great player to be able to call upon from the bench.
