Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich could reignite the club’s Premier League challenge with new recruits in the January transfer window.

Abramovich will be able to do this by taking advantage of UEFA’s relaxation of financial fair play rules during the January transfer window.

The European football’s governing body has eased up its FFP criteria as clubs struggle to cope with the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.

According to Football London, Abramovich will never have a better chance of splashing the cash by doing so during the January transfer window to exploit the transfer loophole.

On New Year’s Eve, Chelsea announced profits of £32.5million for the year ending June 30 – while also stating the club “continues to comply with UEFA’s break-even criteria under the Financial Fair Play (FFP) regulations”.

The Blues have been strongly linked with a January move for West Ham midfielder Declan Rice.
