Todd Boehly and Clearlake Capital bought Chelsea Football Club in May 2022, and in that time the club has spent close to £600 million on transfers alone - when factoring in bonus clauses inserted into contracts.

In fact, Boehly and co. have bought enough players to fulfil a complete starting XI, their 17 signings in the past two transfer windows completely revamping the squad. 

The much-talked about "scattergun" approach, as Gary Neville famously referred to the transfer policy, covers every position across the pitch, with players continuously linked with moves to Stamford Bridge. 

Many of those signings have cost a considerably financial outlay, though, leading to questions about how Chelsea are complying within the regulations of Financial Fair Play. The way they structure their deals allows the club to work within the FFP framework, with large contracts allowing for sums to be paid across a number of years. 

Regardless, 17 players totalling £588 million is a hefty amount in just two transfer windows. Indeed, Christopher Nkunku has already agreed to join the club next summer, with his £53 million transfer fee not even included on this list. 

In fact, in January, Chelsea spent £319.5 million - accounting for nearly half of the total expenditure of the Premier League in that month alone.

The club have forked the most out on a January transfer deadline day deal for Enzo Fernandez, costing an eye-watering £107 million to make it the most expensive transfer record in Premier League history

In the same window, Chelsea signed Mykhalo Mudryk from Shakhtar Donetsk, a full £88 million. Wesley Fofana, Marc Cucurella and Raheem Sterling all cost more than £50 million in the summer of 2022 as well, with the two two loan signings, Joao Felix and Denis Zakaria costing the club cash without any future permanent transfer lined up. 

Meanwhile, Cesare Casadei cost £17.5 million, but the 20-year-old is playing for the U21 side and yet to make his debut for the first-team. Malo Gusto, a 19-year-old right-back signed for £31 million, has been loaned back to Lyon for the remainder of the season.
