Chelsea have been warned they could be the next Premier League to face a big points deduction.

Everton have already ten points deducted after failing to comply with Financial Fair Play Rules, while Manchester City are also facing 115 charges which could take a while to find a verdict.

The Blues have been spending non-stop since Todd Boehly took over from Roman Abramovich, having reportedly spent over  £1 billion across four transfer windows.

Man City’s former financial adviser Stefan Borson says Chelsea could be in for similar punishment to Everton if they don’t sell over  £100million worth of players.

“They’ve used the tricks of amortisation. (But) in my mind, there’s certainly trouble on the horizon and they’ll certainly fail FFP for the current season,” Borson told talkSPORT.

his is unless, and it seems to be very unlikely, by June 30, they sell well over £100m worth of players. But the window they can now do that, with the (January) window shutting is going to be very small. 

“The season is going to finish and then we’ve got the Euros. So if you look at someone like Conor Gallagher, if Chelsea want to sell before June 30, they’ll have to move very quickly. And again, likely buyers are going to know that Chelsea need to sell players.”

: “This breach Chelsea are lined up for is much bigger than Everton’s breach. And most importantly from an aggravating perspective, they (Premier League) will consider it (a) deliberate (breach). 

“Chelsea can’t hide behind building a stadium or inadvertently breaching FFP. The accounting period is not over yet, let’s be fair to Chelsea. But I have people telling me you sell Conor Gallagher for £60m, Armando Broja for £40m, Reece James for £30m, whoever it is. But there’s no buyers. 

“There’s no money in the game outside of the Premier League and the Premier League are not stupid. They’re not going to bite on crazy prices for players they don’t rate that highly when they know Chelsea are over a barrel.”
