Chelsea’s Premier League rivals reportedly believe Mauricio Pochettino’s side must make £100m in player sales by June 30 to avoid facing Financial Fair Play issues.

The Premier League’s FFP rules have come to the fore in recent months, with Everton being deducted 10 points in November for breaching them, although this penalty was reduced to six on appeal.

Last month, they were accused again – along with Nottingham Forest – of breaking high-level spending rules. Premier League clubs stand to lose £105m over a three-year period in a row, with the end of each accounting year coming on June 30.

Meanwhile, since Chelsea was taken over by a consortium led by Todd Boehly in May 2022, the Blues have spent more than £1 billion in the transfer market as they look to revamp their squad.

They have spread the cost slightly by using amortization to pay fees over a number of years by giving players long contracts, but the Blues remain the biggest spenders in the top flight over that period.

And according The TelegraphChelsea’s top-flight rivals believe the Blues need to raise almost £100m in sales before the end-June deadline to avoid facing potential punishment.

However, the report claims that Chelsea, who have previously insisted they are not breaking FFP rules, are ruling this out and instead claiming that sales before June 30 would simply be the result of the team’s early planning. before incorporating more signings.

However, they are still likely to send a number of stars this summer, after the Blues recouped £130m before June 30 last year by selling the likes of Mateo Kovacic, Kai Havertz and Edouard Mendy. They then raised another £100m thanks to the departures of Mason Mount, Christian Pulisic and Ethan Ampadu after July 1.

Despite spending more than £1bn under the Boehly-backed consortium, the Blues have recouped almost £400m in sales, but their task of selling players this summer will be affected by Euro 2024, which will be held from June 14 to July 14, with many players unlikely to resolve their future until after the tournament.

But the report also claims that rumors of the need for major sales may be a ploy by Chelsea’s rivals to create uncertainty around the club and its players.

This is pertinent given Lewis Hall is expected to move to Newcastle for £28m after an obligation to buy was inserted into his season-long loan deal, while Romelu Lukaku has a £37m release clause which She could be activated by her loan club Rome or Saudi Arabia. Professional league teams.

Meanwhile, Ian Maatsen has a £35m release clause which is expected to be activated by his loan team Borussia Dortmund or rival clubs.

If all of these players leave, that would generate almost £100m, while the Blues also plan to offload Trevoh Chalobah and Armando Broja, and Conor Gallagher and Marc Cucurella could leave.

In the summer of 2023, Chelsea left their spending until after June 30, before spending £448.5m on 11 senior players, and may do so again this summer.

The Blues return to action on Wednesday in the FA Cup against Leeds United as they look to bounce back from their Carabao Cup final loss to Liverpool on Sunday.
