Chelsea agents paid before sanctions

Chelsea may face an uncertain future, with technical director Petr Cech forced to admit before their home game with Newcastle United in Sunday that he was unsure if there was sufficient money on hand to pay club staff this month.

The club has a weekly wage bill of £28,000 and employs one thousand people in various capacities, but all of them have question marls about their status, including the players, after the UK government imposed sanctions on the club’s owner Roman Abramovich.

The Clun World Champions ate now operating under a special licence, which limits how much can be spent and on what.

One group, though, unaffected by the new measures are agents. In February, the FA released data showing no Premier League club paid more in agent fees than Chelsea.

However, because they are paid bi-annually, and the latest instalment of their fees was deposited with t Football Association according to standard practice before the Abramovich sanctions came into effect, they will still get their money.
