    Apparently they've identified the wreckage now. Ugh.

    Chelsea was hit with a 2 window transfer ban and a £460,000 fine by FIFA relating to the registration of foreign players under 18. The FA was also assessed a £391,000 fine. Chelsea will appeal and it’s likely that process will extend long enough for them to sign players this summer. Barcelona, Real Madrid and Atlético Madrid had also been banned for 2 windows for the same offense; only Real successfully appealed and their ban was reduced to 1 window.

    Based on the sheer scale of Chelsea's offenses, I don't think they're going to get a reduction, but you're right. The appeal will allow them to get a summer window to deal ahead of the ban. Since they had to know this was coming, the Pulisic deal gains a bit more context.

    Of course, given that they basically have an entire roster's worth of quality players out on loan, it's hard to cry for Chelsea. They'll be fine either way.
