Continuously suffering massive losses over the past two years puts Chelsea at risk of having to sell many players in the summer transfer window of 2023.
Last season, Chelsea reported a loss of £121 million, and over the past two years, “The Blues” have lost up to £274 million.
That figure is likely to increase further, as, under Chairman Todd Boehly, Chelsea spent over £500 million in the transfer market this season. If they cannot find a way to reduce their losses, “The Blues” will face the risk of breaching financial fair play rules.
According to The Sun, Chelsea’s significant losses mean they may have to sell many players in the summer transfer window of 2023 to offset their losses. Players like Mason Mount, Trevoh Chalobah, Conor Gallagher, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, and Callum Hudson-Odoi, who were developed by the club, could help “The Blues” make a profit.
Mason Mount is currently being pursued by several top clubs, including Manchester United. According to reports in England, Chelsea has set a price of £50 million for any team interested in the English midfielder.
In addition to the “homegrown” stars, Chelsea is also considering selling older players like Mateo Kovacic, Edouard Mendy, Hakim Ziyech, and Christian Pulisic, who may not have many chances to start this season.
Manager Graham Potter surely doesn’t want to lose so many players. But if they don’t act soon, Chelsea will sooner or later face the wrath of the English Football Association. Not to mention, the team also needs to postpone the renovation of Stamford Bridge.
Additionally, Chelsea’s wage bill has become bloated. Specifically, The Sun revealed that “The Blues” pay their players the most of any Premier League team, with over £212 million per season.
In the summer transfer window of 2023, Chelsea wants to continue spending big on “big-name” signings. Osimhen is one of the names that the London team is targeting. However, given the current situation, it is challenging for “The Blues” to be aggressive in the transfer market.
In the 2023 summer transfer window, Chelsea want to continue spending big money on “blockbuster” signings. Osimhen is one of the names that the London club is targeting. But in the current situation, it’s difficult for “The Blues” to be aggressive in the transfer market.
Chelsea don’t have much chance to break into the top 4 of the Premier League. They sit in 10th place on the table, 11 points behind the top 4. However, Chelsea still have a chance in the Champions League. “The Blues” face defending champions Real Madrid in the quarterfinals.
