The Chelsea Daily Drivel is a daily update of all the stories concerning our club, the rumours, the opinions and more....

So here is the latest from around the web on Wednesday 9th June 2010 including: Ballack, Joe Cole, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Andrew Driver.

First to the news today that Joe Cole and Michael Ballack are confirmed as leaving Chelsea when their contracts expire on 1st July. This is the news we can say we have been expecting but is still a blow hearing that Joe is leaving. I have written an article on Ballack and whether he had been "Undervalued or did we expect too much?" so make sure you check it out and there will more on Joe Cole later.

With the news that these two will depart from the Bridge you can guarantee that the rumour mill will go into overdrive now as everyone wonders Roman & Carlo's next step. One story that seems to be intensifying is the news reported here yesterday that surrounds Bastien Schweinsteiger. Today figures of 25m are being banded about and it seems that this could be a nailed on transfer.

Its reported that Chelsea are already in discussions with his representatives about a possinle 4m per year contract. Like alot of players who are due to take part in the World Cup, Schweinsteiger wants to concentrate on the competition first and his future afterwards. When he has been asked about the move at the German training camp he said:
"Right now I’m focusing solely on the World Cup, All the rest doesn’t interest me.”

I said it yesterday and I say it again, he would be the ideal replacement for Ballack.

Finally to the news that no one really had a clue about and that's Chelsea's reported interest in Heart's winger Andrew Driver. Like most of you, I haven't heard alot about him, or know of him but its reported that Roman has been in touch with the top brass at Hearts and is discussing a 5m deal.

More to follow tomorrow!
