Poor transfer business
Much has been made of Chelsea’s transfer business in recent years. Whilst their business, at the time, is often greeted with cheers from the Chelsea faithful – often it comes back to bite them years later.
For example, players like Romelu Lukaku, Kevin De Bruyne, Nemanja Matic and now Ryan Bertrand have all been sold by the club – only for them to turn players worth twice as much as they were sold for.
Now, years down the road – Chelsea are forced to pay twice as much for a player that isn’t as good as the one that they sold years prior.
In an era where Financial Fair Play reigns supreme, it is actually vital that clubs accurately manage their finances. And Chelsea simply haven’t done that in recent years.
