Financial Fairness Law is still implicitly threatening Chelsea. Accordingly, they just went through a strangely quiet January transfer period, not being able to recruit any players. Remember, the club is famous for its lavish spending under Todd Boehly. Under the American boss, the Blues have spent £1 billion since taking over ahead of the 2022-23 campaign.
The Stamford Bridge team are being hindered by Financial Fair Play, and if they spend more without making any profit, a heavy fine will be imposed. Looking at Everton’s case, Chelsea has reason to be shy.
Now, the Blues understand that they must earn revenue first, if they want to spend heavily in the next summer transfer window. According to The Athletic, Coach Pochettino is preparing say goodbye to homegrown players like Conor Gallagher, Ian Maatsen, Armando Broja and Trevoh Chalobah to balance the budget. At the same time, they are ready to let hero Thiago Silva leave.
