I think if we are honest looking at the current squad knowing that some players will be leaving, the name of Yuri Zhirkov is one of those people we expect to leave the club after failing to make a consistent impact on the Chelsea first team.

Once again, Zhirkov has spoken back home in Russia of his unhappiness at Chelsea and it does come as no surprise. Zhirkov said:
"I am a player of Chelsea FC and I speak about my possible return to Russia only because of my strong desire to be on the field. Unfortunately, I did not have enough playing practice at Chelsea. I just want to play football, not sit on the bench, that’s why the thoughts about a return occur to me. Now I can’t add anything to this. We’ll see how where it all comes in the end."

Now I believe Zhirkov is a good player and maybe should have been given much more of a chance this past season when Malouda's form took a nose dive. However, it's the fact that he has only really had a couple of really good games where he has shown us exactly what he is capable of, that has made the difference from starting games to sitting exactly where he has been, On the bench.

If, as expected, Chelsea look to bring Neymar to the club this summer and with the Brazilian being naturally left sided, it would mean Zhirkov could be one of those players who leave the club.

I have to say, if an offer is made, we should accept it and let the player move on. What do you people think?.
