These are the players Mourinho has gotten rid of in the last 18 months.
Since returning as Chelsea manager 18 months ago Jose Mourinho has quickly gone about putting his own stamp on the Blues team.
Check out this impressive XI of players already axed by the 52-year-old during his second spell at Stamford Bridge.
GK – Mark Schwarzer
Signed on a free transfer from Fulham in the summer of 2013 the veteran goalkeeper played a key role last season after injury to Petr Cech, but since the return of Thibaut Courtois was surplus to requirements and joined Leicester City this January.
RB – Patrick van Aanholt
Technically a left-back this Dutchman never really got his chance in West London and has since been impressing with Sunderland since joining them last summer.
CB – Jeffrey Bruma
Another Netherlands international now, with Bruma finally leaving the Bridge for PSV Eindhoven in the summer of 2013.
CB – David Luiz
The departure of Luiz was considered a good deal by many as the Blues received £40m from Paris Saint-Germain for the Brazilian – almost double what they paid for him.
LB – Ashley Cole
A stalwart in the first team until Mourinho moved Cesar Azpilicueta to left-back and after 12 months as backup the Englishman left for AS Roma on a free transfer.
