Chelsea have managed to stay within the financial fair play rules despite spending big once again, this time on Ukrainian winger Mykhailo Mudryk.
It was announced this week that the Stamford Bridge club have agreed a fee in the region of £88.5 million to bring the talented winger to Chelsea.
Many fans have been wondering how Chelsea have managed to stay within the financial fair play rules after once again splashing the cash in the transfer window.
According to transfer specialist Fabrizio Romano, Chelsea will reportedly circumnavigate FFP rules by paying £62 million upfront with performance-related add-ons worth up to £26.5 million.
In addition, Mudryk is set to sign an eight-and-a-half-year deal that will also help the club from a FFP and amortisation perspective.
Mudryk was officially announced by Chelsea during their Premier League clash against Crystal Palace.
A statement read: “Mykhailo Mudryk has finalised his move from Shakhtar Donetsk to Chelsea after agreeing personal terms with the club.
“The Ukrainian international, who turned 22 earlier this month, has put pen to paper on an eight-and-a-half year contract with the Blues to seal his move to Stamford Bridge.”
Upon signing for the club, Mudryk expressed his delight.
