Following the announcement of a staggering £20m profit Jose Mourinho has been told to transform Chelsea into one of Europe’s elite clubs, according to the Daily
The profits are a hugely significant jump from the £1.4m announced in 2012 and are largely down to the Premier League’s new lucrative TV deal, the £30m and £50m sales of Juan Mata and David Luiz and a new drive for increased commercial revenue.
Club owner Roman Abramovich is now hoping Mourinho will end his sequence of short reigns at clubs and take Chelsea to a similar level of Real Madrid, Barcelona and Bayern Munich over the next five years.
Abramovich also wants to shake the club’s current controversial image and create a stable project – including the expansion of Stamford Bridge following the failure to secure sites for a new stadium.
The Russian wants Chelsea to be more ‘mature’ in the way they conduct business whilst creating what Mourinho has called multiple ‘dynastic’ successes over the next period of years.
The clubs turnover of £320m means that their future plans to develop their playing staff are more than secure against the threat of Financial Fair Paly regulations – including transfer bans, fines and squad restrictions.
