According to AthleticismChelsea’s credit cards have been frozen by Barclays meaning they can’t even fill the team bus with petrol.

To put the perilous situation into context, Chelsea’s wage bill is £28m a month.

Obviously, if the Blues can’t even buy gas for the team bus, there’s no way they can function on a wage bill like that.

Nevertheless, Chelsea’s setbacks could now benefit Manchester City.

the Daily mail believe the Citizens view James as a long-term replacement for Kyle Walker, although Real Madrid are also interested.

So far this season, the £58,000 per week man marked six goals in 17 Premier League appearances, while offering six assist.

In truth, the main appeal of playing for Chelsea is the fact that they earn silverware most seasons and pay their players very, very well.

That’s exactly what Manchester City are doing, so if Chelsea were to sell to survive, Pep Guardiola could completely devastate Thomas Tuchel’s side.

N’Golo Kante, Romelu Lukaku, Ben Chilwell and Jorginho could now all leave Stamford Bridge, and if they are interested, Manchester City could sign them easily and for a great sum.

Unless a buyer is found quickly, Chelsea fans may have to sit and watch helplessly as their side are ripped apart by football vultures.
