‘Are you serious?’: Fans slam Chelsea after they ask supporters who they want to sign this summer… despite club being slapped with two-year transfer ban
- Chelsea asked fans which transfer targets they wanted to sign this summer
- The club have been handed a two-year transfer ban over breaking transfer rules
- Supporters were quick to criticise the club for asking the question despite ban
In a tweet that has since been deleted, the club shared a link to the latest transfer gossip related to the club.
Some fans used the tweet to suggest that keeper Kepa Arrizabalaga – who ignored Maurizio Sarri’s decision to substitute him in Sunday’s Carabao Cup final – had now also taken charge of transfer policy.
He said: ‘Kepa’s probably already decided’.
Russian side Zenit St Petersburg even waded in on the tweet, commenting: ‘#Topbants’.
Chelsea have been given a two transfer window ban for breaching the rules around the transfer of minors but will appeal the decision.
The investigation was started over the circumstances surrounding the arrival of former player Bertrand Traore.
Chelsea’s transfer ban could see Eden Hazard stay at the club – but their tweet sparked anger
