What will Demba Ba’s role be at Chelsea next season?

Although Neymar and Radamel Falcao will be going somewhere else attention may be focused on Edison Cavani of Napoli and Steven Jovetic of Fiorentina or perhaps Robert Lewondowski who is heavily linked to Manchester United. This means that Ba and Torres could find themselves on the bench or on their way out. The sensible move for Torres would be to off load Torres in exchange for Cavani where he could reunite with Benitez at Napoli.
Ba will, however, remain as they would need another striker even if a big name joins the squad. His role will be secondary of course. Maybe his move to Chelsea was after all pointless as the club is still searching for the ultimate Drogba replacement. Ba could also possibly be a surprise casualty of Mourinho’s return to Chelsea unless he can change the manager’s mind.
