Drinkwater's massive wage has been a pain in the eye for Chelsea

Chelsea have been pretty much underperforming this season. Despite the managerial change, the Blues have still struggled in the league and unable to reach top 4 so far. Antonio Conte's era even seems better as the London outfit have recorded some very embarrassing defeats under Maurizio Sarri this season.

Chelsea could at least have some dignity in the scoresheet due to Conte's park the bus scheme in the past. However, Several of the club's high-profile additions are now struggling to justify their price and high wages due to their horrific situation under Sarri.

The London club would need to do mass clearout to challenge for silverware next season. They could replace the deadweight with their successful loanees if they get banned from the transfer market. Hence, there will be no reason for them to keep these top 3 high-paid underperformers.

#3 Garry Cahill

There are a few players that Chelsea need to cut loose in the summer; one of them is English International, Gary Cahill.

The defender has seen enough glory days at Chelsea and now is the right time for the veteran star to leave Stamford Bridge. He has not got any game time since the end of November last year while he has choked up a massive £100,000 a week salary.

Antonio Rudiger, on the other hand, has only been paid as much as £90,000 even though the German has been Sarri's undisputable number 1 choice at the back. Cahill has hit past his 30 this season. Hence, the club will not offer him a new long-term contract even if they are willing to. He would be very likely to depart from the Bridge shortly.
