Ask a player if they would rather be at a club that wins trophies, or for the same weekly salary be at a club where you would be the centre of attention , and nine times out of ten we think the player would chose to be a star rather than a bench warmer with medals.



This could be exactly the dilemma that could face Chelsea striker Loic Remy in the coming days as Croatian manager Slaven Bilic takes over at Upton Park and goes after the 28-year-old Frenchman knowing that for what he would probably have to pay he could sign a 15 to 20 goal a season striker for a modest amount of money.



Chelsea signed Remy from QPR in 2014 for £10.5 million after activating his release clause at the club, but last season Remy managed just six Premier League starts with a team that included Diego Costa and Didier Drogba, a figure that would irritate most players, never mind a striker with Remy’s abilities, and with Radamel Falcao arriving to replace Drogba the chances of the Frenchman getting more playing time looks reduced further still.



It is for this reason we expect to see him make a move across London once Bilic comes calling, and while it is sad for Chelsea to lose such a good player it is often the price you have to pay when you have so many stars in a team who are all eager for playing time.
