The Court of Arbitration for Sport has decided to take off the transfer ban placed on the club by FIFA.
FIFA had hit Chelsea with a transfer ban for two transfer windows after accusing the club of breaching regulations in relation to the signing of youth players.
In June the club submitted an appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS), and Chelsea are now free to sign players in the January transfer window as the sports regulatory body has now lifted the ban placed on the club.
Former Chelsea boss and current Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho has talked about the transfer ban being lifted, and he doesn’t think Chelsea can get better players than the current squad in the January transfer market.
He said: “I’m not worried with that. First of all, I’m not looking to the distance we have to Chelsea. Between us and Chelsea there are still two or three teams, so you cannot look so high and so far in this moment.
“The second situation is for me that it’s not easy to get better players than they have – they have very good players.
“I don’t think even with a ban or even with a hypothetical multi-million budget to spend, I’m not very, very sure they can get much better players than they have.”
