Chelsea could have star-studded XI of OUTCASTS that would challenge for Premier League title next season including Mount
CHELSEA owner Todd Boehly is creating a squad for the ages, at least in a financial sense.
Consequently, with the the Blues’ starting XI being upgraded, the quality of those in reserve has been improved too.
SunSport have taken a look at three ways Chelsea could line up next season after Neymar was sensationally linked with a summer transfer.
A report earlier today suggested the Boehly has flown to Paris for talks to sign superstar Neymar.
It comes after the 31-year-old had an argument with PSG chief Luis Campos.
And now Chelsea have entered discussions to try and sign the superstar, DESPITE already splashing out an unprecedented £600million on transfers in the last two windows.
In addition, RB Leipzig star Christopher Nkunku is already set to join the club having undergone a medical in September.
With the pair’s introduction and both liking to play behind the striker, the best way to accommodate them both could be to push Nkunku out wide in support of Joao Felix, whose loan deal at Chelsea could be made permanent in the summer.
Providing N’Golo Kante can remain fit, he will partner British transfer record signing Enzo Fernandez in midfield, while Wesley Fofana, Benoit Badiashile, Ben Chilwell and Reece James sit in the defence ahead of Kepa Arrizabalaga.
Looking beyond the starting XI shows a very strong team of outcasts.

This side would include the likes of Champions League winner Mason Mount and serial Premier League winner Raheem Sterling.
In this hypothetical XI, the two Englishmen would be joined by January signings Noni Madueke and Malo Gusto.
Meanwhile, Champions League final goalscorer Kai Havertz would lead the line while Thiago Silva and Kalidou Koulibably marshal the centre of defence in front of Edouard Mendy.
Marc Cucurella, Mateo Kovacic and Conor Gallagher would come in to complete the XI ahead of a number of other stars still at the club.
The likes of Trevoh Chalobah, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Armando Broja, David Datro Fofana and Andrey Santos would fill out the rest of the squad alongside a number of academy players.
Among these would be Carney Chukwuemeka, Omari Hutchinson and Gabriel Slonina.
Senior stars Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Christian Pulisic and Hakim Ziyech would also still be at the club, but the trio have all been linked with the exit door at Stamford Bridge in the upcoming summer.
