New Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas may have to cull many of his newly inherited Blues squad to make room for some fresher faces, according to the Mirror.

The 33-year-old was confirmed as the new boss at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday, replacing the sacked Carlo Ancelotti, who departed at the end of last season.

And with many of the current Chelsea squad seemingly past their best, Villas-Boas has some tough decisions to make over who he sells this summer.


The Chelsea boss may have to consider the future of the likes of 33-year-old pair Frank Lampard and Didier Drogba and Nicolas Anelka and Florent Malouda who are both 32.

Other Chelsea stars linked with a move away from the club are Michael Essien, who is attracting interest from Real Madrid, Salomon Kalou and John Obi Mikel.
