The International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (CIJI) is adamant that Chelsea, in its heyday, cheated. Under the presidency of Russian oligarch Roman Abramovich, between 2003 and 2022, the Blues benefited from an occult financing system that enabled them to fly under the radar.at ?

The transfer of former Belgian star Eden Hazard is said to have involved a similar set-up, among other suspicious moves in terms of Premier League and UEFA rules – the English soccer league having recently taken a close look at the past transactions that brought Brazilian Willian and Cameroonian Samuel Eto’o to the Blues.
