"Chelsea continued with their policy of offering long-term deals. Fernández, who helped Argentina win the World Cup in Qatar, has agreed an eight-year deal. The club believe that handing out such deals will help them meet FFP rules. Amortisation is the key – spreading the cost of a fee over the length of a contract. However Uefa is set to change those regulations from the summer, with clubs expected to be stopped from spreading the cost of fees for more than a period of five years.
Chelsea, who are 10th in the Premier League, handed Mykhailo Mudryk an eight-and-a-half-year half deal after signing the Ukraine winger from Shakhtar Donetsk for £88.8m. Potter’s team are out of both cups and face a fight to qualify for the Champions League."
The signings of those two players are one of the few highlights of their reign so unfortunately you still look silly as your boi scores 1 in 3 and your team linger in mid table with their reputation in tatters.
