Wheeling and dealing! Chelsea hoping to hack £80 million off their wage bill and fund Stamford Bridge renovations
According to the Financial Times, the Blues have also forged a partnership with US alternative asset management firm Ares Management which will inject around £404m ($500m) into the club. Since Todd Boehly took over Chelsea they have spent almost £1 billion on player transfers with the wage bill also increasing steadily with new signings.
Hence there will be concerted efforts to cut down on the wage bill, which is currently at least £150m, by either selling or loaning out players in the upcoming transfer window
“I think what we are trying to do is reduce the salary and essentially the opex [operating expenses] of the business by over $100m (£80.6m) per year,” said Clearlake’s co-founder Jose Feliciano at the IPEM private equity conference in Paris.
