As per the re­cent ‘Football Leaks’ there have been al­le­ga­tions against Chelsea, who re­port­edly paid An­dreas Chris­tensen’s fa­ther Sten around £600,000 over a four-year pe­riod from 2012. An­dreas, at the time, was 15 and it’s sug­gested that the fee was paid in or­der to guar­an­tee the de­fender joined Chelsea. This kind of agree­ment would break Pre­mier League rules, so Chelsea hired Sten as a scout, a role he never ful­filled. In in­ter­nal emails about con­tract ne­go­ti­a­tions, Chelsea re­fer to the pay­ment as a “parental salary”. Both par­ties have de­clined to com­ment.
