Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich decided to splash over £200m in the transfer market over the summer, which saw the club make move for stars like Timo Werner, Kai Havertz, Hakim Ziyech, Ben Chilwell and Edouard Mendy.

The Chelsea owner has relaxed from spending big in the transfer market, compared to the days when he usually splashed heavily in the market. Chelsea’s spending have been curtailed for some years now, and fits into the UEFA Fair Play system.

However, UEFA is now set to scrap their Financial Fair Play (FFP) system and replace it with new rules that will govern club finances.

According to reports, the new system will provide clubs with greater freedom over their spending power and have less control on how much clubs can invest in the transfer market before falling foul of the regulations.

The current FFP rules have lasted for a decade and was introduced at the start of the 2010-11 season. A number of clubs have fallen short of the FFP rule, and journalist Tancredi Palmieri predicts that its end is near.

According to the Italian football reporter, the introduction of a new system will be announced soon as a replacement for FFP, and this new system will give clubs ‘much more freedom’ with their spending.
