Chelsea legend Pat Nevin says he's not worried about Chelsea's spending power amid financial crisis caused by the outbreak on Covid-19.

The outbreak is certainly going to make it difficult for clubs to spend a huge amount of money but Nevin believes that Chelsea are in a healthy state because they could use players from the academy or still spend money they have saved in the last two transfer windows while serving a two-window ban.

“I have a suspicion and a feeling that Chelsea will be OK,” he said.

“Financially they will not be too bad. If you talk about the young players, they will grow and that’s fantastic.

“There might be something in the economics that makes it difficult to bring players in.

“But if they can’t buy any players then they can just carry on.

“Some clubs will have to have fire sales that you wouldn’t believe. Some clubs will be able to deal with it well and be in an amazing position. Some clubs could be in danger of folding.

“You look at some of the clubs living on debt and you stick another massive amount of debt on top of that, which is what they are going to get, and the fundamentals are in a bad way for a lot of clubs right now.”

Chelsea have already signed Hakim Ziyech from Ajax but a couple more are expected to arrive Stamford Bridge in the summer.
