Chelsea in pain as they face ‘more severe’ points deduction

WHAT HAPPENED?

After taking over at Stamford Bridge in May 2022, the ownership group led by Todd Boehly has spent over £1 billion ($1.3 billion) on transfers. Premier League teams are only permitted to record losses of up to £105 million ($134 million) over a three-year period, which puts Chelsea in danger of facing the same sanctions as Everton and Forest, who have already lost six and four points in the 2023–24 season, respectively.

THE BIGGER PICTURE

What Chelsea needs in the upcoming window, he continued, is to find buyers for Trevoh Chalobah ($26 million), Armando Broja ($40 million), and Conor Gallagher ($50 million). Such kinds of transactions are necessary. By the way, June 30 is the deadline for finishing them all. That is, as far as we know, stated in the Forest ruling. There is much discussion about how difficult it is to sell players in the run-up to June. In fact, the Premier League implied, more or less, that it was not possible.

In light of this and the fact that the Blues are finding it difficult to adhere to the Profit and Sustainability Rules (PSR), Borson continued, “Yeah,” in response to a question about whether the West London heavyweights might face more severe penalties than those that have already been meted out. All right, maybe even worse. To me, it seems like they are currently projecting losses that are significantly greater than those of Nottingham Forest and Everton.

WHAT NEXT?

With 115 charges hanging over their heads, Manchester City is another high-spending Premier League team waiting to find out what will happen to them. Many have suggested that the 2023 Champions League winners should be demoted out of the top division.
