According to English press reports, Chelsea are in danger of deducting points from their Premier League tally this season due to the deals of Willian and Samuel Eto'o.
Chelsea signed Cameroonian Eto'o and Brazilian Willian on a free transfer in 2013 after the end of their contracts with Russian side Angie.
According to the newspaper "Mirror", the Premier League has almost opened up about the incident, and if the accusations against him are found to be true, the Blues will be subject to severe penalties up to the point deduction.
The accusation against Chelsea is of paying money to Russian entities separate from the agreed transfer fees, suspicions that contravene the Financial Fair Play Act.
Curiously, Chelsea in this case would fall victim to the actions of their old owner Roman Abramovich, while the club is currently under American ownership led by billionaire Todd Boely.
Deducting points from Chelsea's tally would make matters worse, as the London club has so far amassed just 12 points after 10 rounds of the Premier League, and are in eleventh place.
