Chelsea record £121million net loss as worried fans brace for summer clear out

Chelsea fans are worried the Blues might be set for a clear out over the summer – after they announced a £121million net loss.

The Blues have spent big since Todd Boehly purchased the club from Roman Abramovich last year. Chelsea have splashed out over £500million on new signings, with World Cup winner Enzo Fernandez the stand-out addition.

However, the loss relates to the 21/22 season, and Chelsea are still on track to comply with UEFA and Premier League financial regulations. The Blues also noted that the results have also been impacted by sanctions placed against Roman Abramovich following Russia's invasion of Ukraine.

One fan tweeted: "This is why sales of players like Mount (50-60M), Gallagher (30M), RLC (25M) are essential for our sustainability, it's no longer about proper Chelsea or whatever, sales reflect directly into the books and we need big money coming in!"

"Mount will spearhead our massive clear-out," a second added. While a third tweeted: "Yep we're definitely clearing out!"

"Obviously with the sanctions, and the impact of COVID, a loss was expected. As long as we're compliant with everything else, we're good," one optimistic fan added. While another tweeted: "This summer clear out going to be beautiful. Think Mount will be a large portion of that!"
