Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho could be forced to offload key players to fund their summer spending.

Chelsea could be forced to sell either Oscar or Eden Hazard to fund their summer spending spree, according to a report.

Blues boss Jose Mourinho has also been given the go-ahead to offload all four of his senior strikers to bankroll replacements, The Mirror claims.

This means that Fernando Torres, Samuel Eto'o, Demba Ba, and Romelu Lukaku could all be leaving Stamford Bridge at the end of the season.

David Luiz and Ashley Cole have also been linked with moves away from Chelsea, while the future of veteran duo John Terry and Frank Lampard is uncertain.

The mass exodus could pave the way for Mourinho to bring in his primary summer targets, Atletico Madrid's Diego Costa and Mario Mandzukic of Bayern Munich.
