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.
