There are multiple reports stating that Chelsea have to raise £100million in player sales by June 30 to include in their financial accounts for 2023-24 in order to not breach the Premier League Profit and Sustainability (PSR) rules. The Blues insist they continue to stay in line with PSR rules, but player sales would help them fund further transfer signings after spending more than £1billion since being taken over by Todd Boehly and Clearlake Capital. According to reports, the club are hoping to sign a centre back, left back and a striker and assuming the West London side have to sell players to make this happen, which players can be sold and how much money can the club raise from these sales?


CFC currently have Djordje Petrovic, Robert Sanchez and Marcus Bettinelli as first team goalkeepers. They seem to be good enough for the first team right now with the likes of Gabriel Slonina developing well out on loan. Another player out on loan which the club have to sell is Kepa Arrizabalaga currently playing for Real Madrid. The Spain international started well for the Los Blancos but the emergence of Andriy Lunin have resulted in limited game time. With only a year left on Kepa's contract, Chelsea receiving anything less than £10 million would be booked as a loss in the accounting book. But after his failed loan move to Real Madrid, the only way for the club to get around that figure is if any team from Saudi Arabia come calling. At the same time, would Kepa really be willing to go there? The club are in a very difficult situation and the worst case scenario would be another loan move and the Spaniard then leaving on a free. A realistic sum CFC can expect to receive from any European club will be around £5-8 million, saving £7.8 million in wages annually.
