Chelsea eyeing cash boost from Mutu case


Recommended Posts


Chelsea could be set for a new cash boost courtesy of former striker Adrian Mutu.

The Guardian says Carlo Ancelotti's transfer spending could be funded by a player he tried to sign for Milan last summer if sport's highest court upholds a £14.87m compensation award to Chelsea.

Mutu was sacked by Chelsea following a positive test for cocaine use in 2004, which prompted the club to embark on a five-year pursuit for compensation. The outcome is due soon, following Mutu's final appeal at the Court of Arbitration for Sport in March.

CAS had already been involved in the case when it said that the world governing body, Fifa, should calculate what compensation was due, and the figure it reached was £14.87m. Mutu demanded the Fifa award be annulled.
