Exclusive: Chelsea likely to receive a penalty for Financial Fair play breach – Fans stunned!

Premier League club Chelsea are on the verge of receiving a points deduction penalty for breach of their profit and sustainability rules. Since the arrival of Todd Boehly in May 2022, the Blues have proceeded to spend in excess of £1bn. However, the corridors of power at Stamford Bridge are pretty sure to pass the regulations before June 30.

The sale of Lewis Hall for £28m and Armando Broja’s loan for £4m will help them maintaing the records. Though, they need to make some big sales in the summer transfer as well to be safe sided.

How can Chelsea manage their accounts and save them from breach & penalty?

A negative of £90.1m was recorded in the books, down on the £121.4m figure for 2021-22, giving Chelsea a total of £211.5m. They are not allowed to go over £105m across a three-season period. Owing to this, Chelsea will be in a hurry to make some sales in the month of May and June.

Although it is not clear who will be departing West London, some believe that they will be unable to avoid the penalty. Speaking on the Inside Track Podcast, Pete O’Rourke suggests there is a high probability of Chelsea being handed a points deduction. The club is also on hold for the rules and regulations breach during the era of Roman Abramovich. Even Todd Boehly expressed his concern about the verdict that is yet to be delivered on this.

The severity of the punishment will be depending on how much has the club spent over the expenditure limit. Clubs like Everton and Nottingham Forest also received a points deduction in the past for the same. The Merseyside club got an eight points penalty while the latter one was bolted a four points deduction. All these if taken into account, can cause the Blues serious issues.
