Chelsea has a bit of a dilemma on their hands as they can only register three of their six new January signings to feature in the Champions League this season.
Chelsea is currently a team in transition, they have a new owner, a new manager and now a host of new players.
Todd Boehly was busy in the January transfer market, with his team currently mid-table he chose to tackle the issue by splurging over £300 million on six new players.
But now, he and the club have an unexpected problem on their hands, they can only register half of the new arrivals for their Champions League campaign.
Chelsea are allowed to register a maximum of three new eligible players for the knockout stages of the Champions League.
🇦🇷 Enzo Fernández
🇺🇦 M. Mudryk
🇵🇹 João Félix
🇫🇷 B. Badiashile
🇨🇮 D. Fofana
🏴 Noni Madueke
Which three get in? 🤔
