FIFA have banned Chelsea from signing players until January 2011.
The reasons are well documented elsewhere, but in case you missed it, Chelsea signed a young French player from a French club two years ago. Said French club complained it wasn’t fair and FIFA agreed and have now fined both Chelsea and the young French player, banned him for four months and blocked Chelsea signing anyone for the next two transfer windows.
Quite funny you may think for anyone other than Chelsea supporters? But this move could have a direct affect on Wolves.
The reason why? Michael Mancienne.
Michael Mancienne joined Wolves just before the season started on loan. Chelsea have an option to recall Mancienne back to Stamford Bridge, something they may now look to do if their defensive cover begins to look a a bit short.
That in turn will leave us, without Michael Mancienne and possibly desperate to find a replacement.
