Going by the 19+3 rule Jose seem to like among his outfield players I guess we have 12/19 covered among the senior names.

DF: Terry, Cahill, Ivanovic, Azpilicueta

MF: Matic, Fabregas, Ramires

AM: Hazard, Willian, Oscar, Schurrle, Salah

S: -

That's 12 senior players who more or less are guaranteed to stay on for next season.

7 more "senior" players and 3 "younger ones" left to fill.

Costa and Luis looks likely to be 2 of the senior ones.

That leaves us with 5 more senior players and 3 younger ones. Out of these 8 players 5 need to be homegrown (unless we have a second choice GK lined up who's HG or Blackman stays on as 3rd choice GK).

You have forgotten Marko Van Ginkel.

He will be here next season.

Nope. I didn't forget Van Ginkel. Just as I didn't forget Mikel. For me it's not a certainty either will be here next season.

I doubt any of them will do that this year - at least not the list of players JM intends to actually use, rather than bring in for a few minutes at the end of the season or the LC.

McEachran should have been breaking into the team this season, but it looks like he has missed the boat.

Wallace, Romeu, Piazon, Marin & Bamford should be sold this summer. None of them have genuine Chelsea futures. Patrick may get a shot to fill an Association Trained spot but only for that reason.

I don't know why we'd sell Wallace yet - one of the few players that actually appears to have been bought in order to have a Chelsea future, despite his stinker of a loan spell. Selling Bamford after his performances on loan would send all the wrong messages.

I'd be very happy to see Atsu and Omeruo as first team squad members for next season.

Selling Bamford after his performances on loan would send all the wrong messages.

Surely if Bamford went on to get a good contract at a Championship team challenging for a PL place that would be great news for him and great encouragement for anyone younger at Chelsea.

Unless of course you meant that succeeding after being on loan for all but just 3 months of his two Chelsea years is a bad sign.
