Chelsea out of Icardi sweepstakes: the Blues are banned to sign players until summer 2020
The big news of today, especially in England, is that Chelsea have been banned from signing players for the next two transfer windows for violating rules related to signing players under 18 years of age.
What does this mean? Well, the Blues cannot bring in players until summer of 2020 but they can still recall loaned players or send their players out on loan.
Out of all clubs in England, Chelsea have the most interest in Mauro Icardi and given this decision, we can surely say that there is one less team in the Icardi sweepstakes.
