Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is planning to axe five first-team stars from his squad this summer, in order to ensure he falls in line with Financial Fair Play rules.

The Blues boss is said to want to acquire a big-name striker in the next transfer market, and it is willing to offload Fernando Torres, Romelu Lukaku, Ashley Cole, David Luiz and John Obi Mikel to raise the funds. It’s thought that the clear out could generate as much as £80million.

Manchester United have moved to second in the ‘wage league’, having eclipsed Chelsea for the first time in ten years with their salary bill from last season. The Red Devils reportedly spent £182million on wages last term, while their west London rivals only recorded an outlay of £176million. Big-spending Manchester City topped the charts at £233million.

At the Emirates, Arsene Wenger has fired what some could perceive to be a jibe at Sir Alex Ferguson, by laughing off the prospect of choosing his own successor. David Moyes, who was appointed on Ferguson’s recommendation, has struggled in his duties this term, but Wenger said it is not his job to choose who replaces him, and won’t be involved in the selection process.
