Four Chelsea players finishing contracts,it’s not about players coming in, it’s about the situation

However, former Stamford Bridge midfielder Gus Poyet believes resolving internal contract issues should be the priority for the club.

He said: “Chelsea, it’s not about players coming in, it’s about the situation with three defenders – (Cesar) Azpilicueta, (Andreas) Christensen and (Antonio) Rudiger.

“It’s very unusual, a week ago, four players were finishing contracts, more or less in the same line, central defenders. And the oldest one (referring to Thiago Silva) renewed first. Normally it is the opposite – the youngest one renews. This shows that it’s not been easy.

“I think it will depend on what happens with those three. If Chelsea find, already, someone, in the long term they can sign in that position, they would probably do it.

“The rest, someone who can play left wing-back if Marcos Alonso gets suspended or injured, probably. With the wing-backs out and Ben Chillwell injured for a long time, maybe they’ll bring someone in there. We’ll see.”
