Chelsea unlikely to avoid point deduction punishment for PSR breach

For breaking the Premier League’s Profit and Sustainability Rules, Chelsea are reportedly not going to escape a points deduction punishment.

The Blues have spent almost £1 billion in four transfer windows since Todd Boehly and Clearlake Capital arrived in May 2022, with the first three transfer windows accounting for the majority of this expenditure.

Boehly and Clearlake decided not to increase their outgoings in January due to their growing disapproval with the top flight’s regulations.

The management at Chelsea is reportedly optimistic that the regulations will be passed by the next accounting date, which is June 30.

The Blues reported a negative of £90.1m in the books, down on the £121.4m figure for 2021-22 but giving Chelsea a total of £211.5m.

According to Profit and Sustainability rules, Premier League clubs are not allowed to go over £105m across a three-season period.

Due to this, a firesale is now planned for the end of May or early June, however it is unclear which players will be sold.

Chelsea have endured a difficult season.
