As the Blues look to retina their Premier League title again next term, they have sought to release just one player – iconic striker Didier Drogba.

The veteran hit man returned to Stamford Bridge last summer after a short spell away to help Jose Mourinho’s men clinch the title with seven goals in 38 appearances across all competitions.

However, with his influence not being what it once was, he has been deemed surplus to requirements.

And though Mourinho has 72 players at his disposal, he used the fewest in the Premier League last term by fielding just 22.

Chelsea are well known for sending a high volume of players out on loan, and the complete list of 72 doesn’t include their six academy scholars, though we have added them at the bottom.
