Chelsea host Championship leaders Leicester City in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup on Sunday. 

The Blues have reached the final of the competition in five of the last seven seasons, and manager Mauricio Pochettino will be hoping to do so once again this term as it represents their last chance of silverware.

The Foxes will undoubtedly provide a stern test at Stamford Bridge, though, having beaten Chelsea in the final in 2021.

Pochettino is enduring a frustrating first season in charge of Chelsea with his side currently sitting 11th in the Premier League table.

The Argentine will be desperate to see his side progress into the last four of the competition, but regardless of their success it appears that this summer will be one of significant change in West London.

According to Football Insider, a number of key players could be sold this summer.

Mudryk scored a sensational goal against Newcastle United last time out

The report claims that those in charge of the club will look to offload a number of players this summer in order to adhere to financial regulations.

Wingers Mykhaylo Mudryk and Raheem Sterling are said to be among the biggest names that could be offloaded.

Sterling was one of the first signings made by Todd Boehly when he took charge of the club in 2022, but the England international has struggled to find his best form since moving to London.

In total he has made 73 appearances across all competitions, scoring 17 goals and providing 13 assists.

He has also fallen out of favour at international level, having failed to be included in Gareth Southgate’s squad since the last World Cup.

Mudyrk, meanwhile, joined CHelsea from Shakhtar Donetsk in January last year after nearly signing for London rivals Arsenal.

He has since made 46 appearances for the club but scored just six times and provided only five assists.

It is claimed that the Blues will look to sell as many as four senior players before the end of June in order to avoid breaching financial fair play restrictions.
