Exclusive: Telegraph Journalist Drops Major Chelsea Transfer Ban Update After CAS Statement

Chelsea Transfer Ban update

According to Telegraph journalist Matt Law, Chelsea haven’t applied to the Court of Arbitration for Sport to have their transfer ban frozen. 

Law communicated with the CAS last week to see if the Blues had requested the ban be frozen while their appeal is considered.

He heard back from them today and reproduced the CAS statement: “For a challenged decision to be stayed during the CAS proceedings, a specific request to this effect must be made.

“At the time of writing, a request has not been filed in the Chelsea/FIFA matter. Accordingly, the FIFA decision remains in force.”

Law posted the update on his personal Twitter account on Tuesday morning.

It’s going to be a summer of flux for Chelsea and a troubling one for supporters.

The club doesn't have a manager and can’t make any new signings, with star player Eden Hazard having left.

That’s going to significantly weaken the Blues going into the new season with the very real likelihood of not being able to bring any new faces in.

According to the CAS, Chelsea haven’t applied to have their transfer ban frozen pending the appeal and that looks odd on the surface.

If they’re appealing, why not try to make signings in the interim?

However, there will be reasons behind the scenes that we’re not privy to and signing anyone this summer could have more consequences if the ban was upheld.

For the time being at least, the transfer ban on Chelsea is in operation.
