The wait is nearly over for Chelsea and the fans as it’s been confirmed that November 20th 2019 will be the date that the Blues find out whether or not their ban is reduced or upheld through until next summer.
 
The Court of Arbitration will officially rule on the appeal made by Chelsea to see the ban cut and allow the Premier League high-flyers to return to transfer activity as soon as January 2020 – as reported in the Guardian.
 
Blues fans though may not be too disappointed if the ban is indeed upheld until next summer due to the way the current team are performing, a blend of youth and the form of the newest arrival Christian Pulisic has elevated Chelsea to fourth in the table.
 
The dilemma that may face Frank Lampard in January, should he be allowed to splash the cash, is who does he buy to improve the current starting XI? With Chelsea still waiting on the return to fitness of N’Golo Kante, Antonio Rudiger and Ruben Loftus-Cheek, an argument can be made that the Blues don’t need to buy anyone, yet.
 
The FIFA appeals committee found that Chelsea had been in-breach of 150 regulations, with the club already fined financially earlier in 2019.
