Jose Mourinho could be forced to sacrifice Oscar or Eden Hazard to fund his summer spending spree. Mourinho has received the green light from Roman Abramovich to offload ALL four senior strikers on the Blues' books after his repeated complaints about his forward options were accepted. That means summer exits for Fernando Torres, Samuel Eto'o and Demba Ba, with Tottenham target Romelu Lukaku also available to go when he returns from a season-long loan at Everton. The huge overhaul comes with the Blues board agreeing Mourinho lacks a "real striker" in the wake of the Champions League defeat in Paris. Mourinho is looking to sell £35m-rated David Luiz, with Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich the most likely options if Barcelona's two-window transfer ban is upheld. Ashley Cole is set to go while the futures of Frank Lampard and Chelsea's talismanic skipper John Terry - also out of contract in the summer - remain clouded in doubt.
