Chelsea stars hit by Champions League failure

Chelsea’s defeat in the Champions League and their failure to qualify for the competition next season could have huge ramifications for the club this summer.

That is because a new bonus scheme introduced by the Todd Boehly consortium at the club means that players on existing deals could see their wages slashed by up to 30%.

It also makes it much more difficult to persuade players like Mason Mount to sign a new contract with the club.

It is also going to make it more difficult to attract some of their biggest targets in the summer, which is likely to see substantial churn at Stamford Bridge anyway.

Already conscious of the fact that they are flirting with Financial Fair Play (FFP) rules, there is an acknowledged need to trim the squad,  not only to get some of their wages off the books, but also to make room for new arrivals.
