La Liga President Accuses Chelsea of Cheating in Fiery Press Conference over Transfer Tactics

In a heated press conference, the president of La Liga made a bold accusation that Chelsea had engaged in clear acts of cheating through their transfer strategies utilized in the January transfer window. He provided a list of reasons to support his claim.

During a press conference, La Liga president Javier Tebas accused Chelsea of “clearly cheating” in relation to their transfer tactics during the January window.

Tebas specifically criticized the club for spending an enormous £323 million and avoiding Financial Fair Play rules by securing their new signings to lengthy contracts. Enzo Fernandez, Mykhaylo Mudryk, and Benoit Badiashile, who recently joined the team, signed contracts that extend until 2030 or 2031, allowing the costs of their transfers to be spread out over the course of their deals.

La Liga president Javier Tebas expressed his discontent with Chelsea’s tactics and accused the club of breaking rules by signing players to eight or nine-year contracts.

However, despite Tebas’ accusations, it seems that Chelsea has found a way to comply with FFP regulations, despite their significant spending. Financial expert Kevin Maguire told Sky Sports that the club has chosen to spread out the costs of their new signings by offering them extended contracts.

“So, by signing Mykhailo Mudryk on an eight-and-a-half-year contract, the way it is dealt with for accounting and FFP purposes is you take that £88m cost and you divide that over eight-and-a-half-years, and it works out as just over £10m-a-year.

“That appears to be the Chelsea strategy that they have employed over the last couple of windows.” Tebas’ attack on the Blues comes as he attempts to clean up Barcelona’s mess in his own backyard, after the La Liga giants were charged with paying match officials.

It seems that despite Tebas’ doubts about Chelsea’s actions, he has warned that severe repercussions, such as relegation to the second division and massive fines, may be imposed if the club cannot provide a satisfactory explanation for their behavior.

Tebas also noted that although he doesn’t believe Barcelona has purchased referees, he believes that the team must provide a clear explanation for a situation that has arisen.

“The sanction for buying referees? Very serious. Relegation to the second division, multimillion fines. The reputational damage done to Barcelona and La Liga is very important.”
