In what may come as a pleasant surprise to all Chelsea faithful, FIFA has reportedly decided to lift their transfer ban on the Blues after the club’s second appeal was found successful.
A FIFA source confirmed to AF: “We have decided to overturn the transfer ban on Chelsea Football Club following a second appeal.
“Chelsea assured us they are really sorry about what they did and that they really, really want to change.
“Of course, we have been here before with Chelsea [over Gael Kakuta in 2010] but they seem really sincere this time. There is a lot of regret there.”
With the club’s recent performances, summer reinforcements are of utmost importance for the Blues as they look to mount a serious title challenge next season.
