What is Chelsea’s hope? Transfer ban still standing

Timothy Aiyeku



As it stands, the West London outfit Chelsea will still be unable to participate in the summer transfer window, owing to the transfer ban on the club.

The West London outfit are accused of breaching rules relating to the transfers of foreign minors, going by Article 19 of the Regulations on the Status and
Transfer of Players.

An attempt to have the ban appealed to world football’s governing body FIFA failed which makes the Court for Arbitration for Sports, CAS the next and only option available.

The hearing at CAS is yet to go down which keeps the Blues team in a very difficult situation to either indicate interest in a player or bargain for deals.

This, therefore, raises concerns of hope for the Blues team as it is not sure if they would be able to compete for titles in the coming season as well as handle the Champions League challenge.

What is more disturbing is that the Court of Arbitration for Sport has not received an appeal from Chelsea FC, according to claims by

With Eden Hazard set to leave the club, it would be unfortunate to learn that the West London outfit will not be able to replace him until after two windows.
