One more academy graduate which might be cashed in on is Armando Broja. The Albanian international signed a long term contract just last year, tying him down till June 2028 and was surprisingly loaned out to Fulham this winter transfer window. That has turned out to be nothing less than a disaster due to the emergence of Rodrigo Muniz at Craven Cottage. The striker has failed to start even a single game for the Cottagers which now has triggered a clause in the loan deal which stated that he must have started 10 games. Even though CFC have pocketed £4m from the clause, the transfer value of the striker has significantly dropped and in the summer the club can realistically only demand around the £20 million mark and moving on his annual salary of £2.08 million.

One of the big money signings which has failed to impress at the club is that of Raheem Sterling. Receiver of multiple booing this season, the England international has been very frustrating with his performances in a season where the fans thought the youngsters could rely on Sterling due to his past experiences and accomplishments. Far from it, there have been instances where the player has looked greedy in his gameplay and has lacked consistent good performances. The winger currently is the highest earner at the club with £325,000 per week salary and has not justified that sum since his arrival last season. There seems no point of having a player like Sterling blocking the development of Mudryk but realistically, moving the Englishman will be nearly impossible due to his high wages unless an angel from Saudi Arabia comes to our rescue.

Transfer Fees: £60 million Wages: £13.28 million


After going through the full squad, if the club is successful in selling all the deadwood from previous regime and some players who have failed to impress in the team, the Blues can easily raise around £200 million worth of transfer fees and save £39-40 million worth of wages annually. This figure, if the owners are in trouble with the PSR rules, will certainly keep the team safe from facing any financial sanctions, transfer embargoes or points deduction. This sum of money will also help the club in further strengthening the squad with a center back, left back and striker this summer. All in all, the club seems to be in quite a safe place when it comes to spending and still could splash the cash if they wanted this summer (hopefully not).
