There's been plenty of negative news surrounding Premier League clubs over the last few weeks with the majority of it surrounding the spending power of Manchester City, but today new allegations have surfaced around one of their rivals. Football Leaks are today claiming that Chelsea have their own mis-givings to answer for, with their acquisition of Andreas Christensen back in 2012 potentially breaking Premier League rules which could land them in some serious trouble. The Premier League and FIFA has strict rules regarding player recruitment at all ages, but Chelsea's move for Christensen has made the news as he was such a young age when he departed Denmark for West London.
This isn't the first time that Chelsea have made the headlines for poaching young talent, their capture of Gael Kakuta in 2007 saw them given a 2 year transfer ban in 2010 which they eventually managed to get lifted after reaching an agreement with his previous club Lens. And just a couple of days ago there were claims that they did something similar with former player Bertrand Traore, who's now at Lyon. He was first registered with the club back in 2014, just after his 18th birthday but reports claim that he was signed prior to him becoming an adult - something that breaches FIFA rules. The games governing body will be looking into all of the claims and should they be found guilty they could receive that two year ban after all..
