Burkina Faso international Bertrand Traore - who now plays for Ligue 1 club Lyon - signed his first professional contract at Chelsea in 2013 at the age of 18 but was not registered until January 2014.

Mediapart claimed Fifa found evidence that Chelsea had misled them over the dates, while Traore was found to have made 25 appearances for the Blues (under-16, under-18 and first team) despite not being registered by the FA.

Chelsea admitted they paid his mother £155,000, as well as a further £13,000 to the club she chaired - AJE Bobo-Dioulasso - in April 2011 to allow them first refusal over his signature.

That deal, it is alleged, was for four and a half years, despite the limit for under-18s being three years.

In addition, it is also claimed Chelsea paid for Traore to attend the £20,000-a-year Whitgift School in Surrey.


So, including all of the above, training costs and wages (one season in Chelsea first team with 10 appearances) you'd reckon Chelsea were probably out of pocket for a bit less than a million? They sold him to Olympique Lyon for £8.8m. Money for old rope.

That school, Whitgift in Croydon, must have a really exceptional team. Palace & Chelsea seem to be sending loads of (mostly African, e.g. that's where they sent Victor Moses) kids there, & they have at least one top ex pro (Colin Pates, Chelsea/Arsenal) coaching there full time.

You say that, but they're probably all contractually barred from non-club competitive games

They're as close to 3rd bottom as they are top. A pretty ridiculous 64 point spread (and another 18 to bottom placed Huddersfield).

They'll no doubt be over the moon, allas it's the Premiership title they crave more than anything.

I read somewhere although it's called the Champions League neither of the finalists have managed to be champions for a combined total of 87 years.

58 years for Spurs, 29 for the scouser, looks like 87 to me

:) I mis-read it then.
I was not expecting such a meaningless stat. :lol:
In general, the finalists are often champions of their own league because Bayern, Juve, Madrid, Barca.
