The Premier League's PSR (Profit and Sustainability Rules) certainly have a lot to answer for. This time last year, no one really knew what they were, as Chelsea dropped nine figures on Enzo Fernandez: 12 months on, they're a volume limit on the headphones of spending, curbing transfer window whispers from developing into anything even resembling an indoor speaking voice.
