Chelsea are bracing themselves for offers for three players this summer, according to reports.

The Daily Express claims Juan Mata, David Luiz and Fernando Torres are all wanted by Europe’s biggest clubs, with £100million a combined figure that could be placed on the table at Stamford Bridge.

Mata, who was one of the Blues’ star performers last term, is a £30million target for Barcelona, with the La Liga champions wanting to pair the Spaniard with new signing Neymar and Argentine superstar Lionel Messi.

Real Madrid are also keen on the 25-year-old, who scored 19 goals in all competitions for Roberto Di Matteo and Rafa Benitez last season.

Compatriot Torres is also a wanted man, with Benitez eager for the player to follow him from Chelsea to Napoli.

The paper claims ‘El Nino’ could be part of a player-plus-cash deal that sees Edinson Cavani move in the opposite direction, or pay in the region of £35million to take the player away from west London.

Finally, Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain are eager to add Luiz to their ranks as a possible replacement for Thiago Silva, and the Chelsea star would cost in the region of £30million.

It all means Jose Mourinho could add £100million to his transfer pot this summer, although 'the special one' would have to reinvest much to replace the Chelsea trio.
