According to the latest, Chelsea are preparing a startlingly large bid in an attempt to sign Premier League striker Ivan Toney of Brentford. Will the Blues get their man at this eye-watering amount, will Toney switch to Arsenal, or is the Englishman destined to remain with the Bees? And a former Liverpool star does not believe that CFC or Manchester City shall face similar Financial Fair Play penalising to Everton.
West or north London – where is Toney going to be in 2024? Well, Chels’ are said to be readying a ‘mammoth’ offer for the 27-year-old.
John Aldridge doesn’t expect point deduction punishments for Chelsea nor Manchester City respectively after Everton docked 10 points for rule breaking
Ex-Reds forward Aldridge has had his say on the Financial Fair Play drama which could potentially turn into a saga if the Blues and the Citizens are punished for supposed misdoings. Everton are now favourites for Premier League relegation – if the Toffees weren’t already favoured for the drop. I know some Leicester City fans who’ll be pleased at EFC’s plight following the Foxes’ now unfair seeming demotion.
CFC and MCFC might perhaps end up in the same boat, if the two clubs are found guilty of respective FFP irregularities. However, Everton’s case is already set to be heard in Parliament following complaints from a sympathetic Member of Parliament. Chels’ are under the spotlight due to apparent payments connected to former owner Roman Abramovich.
Aldridge suggests that the Merseysiders’ penalty was ‘excessive’. In addition to that statement, the one-time prolific striker declares that the only reason Everton were targeted by league officials is because they do not have the finances to fight the charges. Whereas, he claims, Chelsea and Man City have unlimited funds.
