Chelsea bloody love a good loan deal.
Chelsea are notorious for sending young players out on loan and currently have a whopping 40 players away from Stamford Bridge on temporary deals.
But the Blues could be forced to rethink their unusual transfer policy as Fifa reportedly intend to place a cap on the number of players clubs can loan out moving forward.
According to a report in Bild , via the Daily Mail , Fifa want to limit loan moves to eight-per-club, not counting players under the age of 21 and homegrown youngsters.
Only 16 of Chelsea’s 40 loanees would be exempt from the proposed restriction, meaning that Maurizio Sarri would have to reduce the remaining 24 players all the way down to eight.
