BREAKING: Chelsea Get £31.8m Boost in Shocking Transfer Twist!

Chelsea Gains £31.8m Boost with Recent Transfers Ahead of Financial Deadline


In the latest Chelsea transfer updates, the club has announced the departure of Ian Maatsen and the acquisition of Omari Kellyman in recent days.


For many clubs, the financial reporting period for the three-season span concluding with the 2023/24 campaign ends on June 30, just a day away. This has led to a rush for clubs close to the financial limit to balance their books to avoid potential sanctions, including points deductions.


Chelsea, one of the clubs reportedly near the financial threshold, has made significant moves in the transfer market recently. On Friday, the Blues confirmed the sale of Ian Maatsen to Aston Villa.


Aston Villa, under Unai Emery, reportedly paid £35 million for the full-back. This sale is almost pure profit for Chelsea, as Maatsen was signed from PSV Eindhoven during his youth.


In another transaction, Chelsea confirmed the signing of Aston Villa’s young talent Omari Kellyman. The Blues paid around £19 million for the attacking midfielder, but due to a six-year contract, the fee will be amortized, reflecting only a £3.17 million expense on this year’s accounts, with the remaining amount spread over the next five years.


Thus, with these two transfers completed in the last two days and after deducting the £3.17 million for Kellyman, Chelsea adds £31.8 million to their accounts before Sunday’s unofficial deadline. The Kellyman deal also assists Villa, another club close to the financial limit, by adding the full £19 million fee to their current season’s accounts. Kellyman is seen as a highly promising player who could significantly impact Chelsea’s first team in the future.


Chelsea might still add more funds to their accounts before the month’s end. The club has agreed to a £22 million fee with Ipswich for Omari Hutchinson’s permanent move to Portman Road.
