Chelsea is not only making waves in the Premier League with the team of Jose Mourinho claiming the top spot of the English League and are the favorites of winning the title in this season but they are also making a huge splash in their latest financial statement.
Chelsea Football Club reported having a record profit of $29 million for the current year. This is the 2nd time in the history of the club that it has turned a profit since the Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich took control of the club.
“The club is naturally pleased to record a significant profit for 2013/14. By reaching the Champions League semi-final and maintaining a challenge in the Premier League until the final week of the season we demonstrated that, while improving our financial figures, we remained competitive in football’s toughest club competitions,” Bruce Buck, chairman of Chelsea stated.
A new TV broadcasting deal, the sale of Juan Mata and having the stadium filled with fans match after match, week after week has aided in this years’ profit that Chelsea reported.
After having signed CescFabregas and Diego Costa in the summer transfer window it doesn’t really come much as a surprise seeing Chelsea going through such an impressive season but their start of the campaign has simply been overwhelming as Chelsea has not suffered a single loss in the Premier League after having played 11 league matches.
Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea is also going through superb campaign in their Champions League as the Premier League club is at the top of Group G having collected 8 points from the 4 initial matches.
The team of Jose Mourinho is filled with superstar players including: Thibaut Courtois, Cesc Fabregas, Oscar, Eden Hazard, Andre Schurrle, Diego Costa and Didier Drogba but as the January transfer window is edging closer and closer, Chelsea is consistently being linked with a move to Marco Reus.
The Premier League club could be strengthened even further by January of 2015.
