Chelsea managed to spent a whopping amount of over $350 million in the winter transfer window. Their new owner, Todd Boehly did not shy away from making big money signings to bring more talent into the team. Some incredible players like Enzo Fernandez and Mikhaylo Mudryk were brought into the club. But, this does not bode well with the Financial Fair Play policy set by Fifa.
Fifa authorities have set a limit upto which a club can spend their money to sign new players in any transfer window. As can be seen, there is a concern that Chelsea might break the FFP policy if they do not hold back on their spendings and generate more revenue first by selling some players in the coming transfer window.
How will Chelsea manage to save £60m?
One of the main ways that Chelsea could save money is by trimming its wage bill. Currently, the club has one of the highest wage bills in world football and they could cut these costs by selling some extra players from the team.
According to The Sun, the blues could sell the likes of Christian Pulisic, Romelu Lukaku, Kepa Arrizabalaga, Hakim Ziyech, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Callum Hudson-Odoi, which would save the club some £60m a year in salary.
In conclusion, Chelsea’s financial situation is a cause for concern, and the FFP regulations threaten to further impact the club’s finances. However, by cutting costs and selling some players, the club could save almost £60m a year and ensure that it remains competitive and financially stable in the long term.
