There are suggestions that the West London outfit Chelsea might not serve the ban handed to them by the FA for their offence of securing the signature of a youngster who is regarded as a minor.
The Blues team have therefore been handed a fine of about £460,000 and they will not sign a player in the next two transfer windows, a development that is expected to be a big blow to the team, knowing that they will have some players like Belgium international Eden Hazard leave the team while Spanish midfielder Cesc Fabregas would not be replaced.
However, it has been reported that the West London outfit are not ready to accept fate but will go ahead to appeal the ban despite respecting the efforts by FIFA in ensuring that mirrors are fully protected in the game.
Chelsea hinted that they have made some submissions which they expect FIFA to consider before making the decision. They will push for it to be considered, according to reports.
More so, this is not the first time that the West London outfit are being banned by the FA with the last happening in 2009 but they had appealed it and the world football governing body had it reduced.
