Gary Neville has criticised Chelsea's transfer business

Gary Neville is struggling to understand Chelsea’s business.

The Blues have spent over £323million on eight new players in the January transfer window.

They have awarded a few seven or eight-year contracts just to evade the Financial Fair Play rules.

They have broken the British transfer record fee of £107million to sign Enzo Fernandez on an eight-and-a-half year contract.

Man United legend Gary Neville is struggling to see the logic behind Chelsea’s gigantic spending this January.

Neville said: “There’s no such thing as certainty in an eight-year contract.

“Let’s say Mykhailo (Mudryk) becomes a Lionel Messi in four years and Chelsea would sit here today and say “we’ve got him locked down for another four years on a lower wage. I don’t care whether he’s got four years left on his contract or not, Mudryk will kick off, his agent will kick off, he’ll down tools and say ‘I want more money.’

“In football, in this country, with players coming particularly from international soil, I do not see how an eight-year contract can be honoured if the player progresses into something far greater than he is today.”
