      Benfica blast Todd Boehly's way of business. Todd Boehly approached Benfica, promising Chelsea would pay the release clause of €120 milllion for Enzo Fernandez. Benfica then gave Chelsea permission to talk to the player. They drive his head crazy, then Chelsea come back with an offer of €85 million, about 2/3rd of what was originally verbally agreed on.

      Boehly puts Arsenal in the mud by hijacking the Mykhailo Mudryk transfer at the last moment, for a total fee of €100 million. Mudryk is then offered an eight-and-a-half (!!) year contract.

    There is a general feeling of aggravation within the Premier League by the fact that the Chelsea hierarchy are getting involved in just about everything (M. Delaney, The Independent)

      Chelsea’s long-term deals prompt UEFA to set five-year limit

    Officials at European football’s governing body are planning to set a five-year maximum for the length of time over which a player’s transfer fee can be spread, with the new policy brought in before the summer transfer window. It is understood the move comes after a number of clubs raised concerns with Uefa over Chelsea’s policy.

    Fifa’s regulations state that players’ contracts should be a maximum of five years unless they are allowed to be longer under the laws of a particular country, and there is no restriction in the UK.

    Uefa will not prevent Chelsea from spreading the cost of the players they have signed already — defender Benoît Badiashile has a 7½-year deal, Wesley Fofana is on a seven-year contract while striker David Datro Fofana signed a 6½-year contract with the option for another year included. However any signings made from the summer onwards are set to be subject to the new five-year maximum when it comes to amortisation.

    Basically means he has to become a club legend and spend half his career at their club.
