Welcome to the latest update (July 2015) of the WAGNH Chelsea player wage database.

We've completely revamped the layout in an effort to provide a comprehensive picture of Chelsea's financial fair play liabilities with regards to player costs. While financial fair play is likely never going to be a problem for Chelsea, it has become increasingly important to understand how player costs are calculated, as clubs cannot spend more than they earn. As such, financial fair play has essentially created a soft wage cap on clubs, which is determined by how much revenue that club brings in. This database shows how Chelsea has allocated its significant, but finite resources in an interactive and accessible format.

We've tried to include every player who has been part of the club during the financial fair play era and show exactly how much he has cost the club on the financial fair play books.

Simply viewing player costs in terms of transfer fees is insufficient, as financial fair play accounting mandates that we look at the player's annual cost, which is calculated by adding his amortised transfer fee to his annual wage. Contract length and wages are just as important as the transfer fee. For example, the transfer fees for Kurt Zouma (£14.5m) and Filipe Luis (£15.8m) are very similar, but Luis costs twice as much as Zouma on an annual basis.

In addition, for the vast majority of transactions the club has made during the past two transfer windows (purchases, sales, and even loans), we have written detailed financial analyses, which can be accessed by following the links included in the player's infobox next to his name.

Finally there is a key which can be accessed in the top left corner of the screen.

Cole, Ashley info

Cole signed a 1 year extension in January 2013. Note that the amortised transfer fee is not exactly £0, but it is most likely well under £100,000 because the "book value" on Cole's transfer fee is so low given his tenure at Chelsea. Also note that the transfer fee was £5m plus William Gallas, whose fair market value at the time is conservatively estimated at £13m.

Meireles signed a 4 year deal after coming over from Liverpool in August 2011. Chelsea received a £7.9m transfer fee from Fenerbache in August 2012.

Sturridge, Daniel info

Sturridge signed a 4 year deal after coming over from Manchester City in July 2009. Chelsea received a £12m transfer fee from Liverpool in January 2013. However, 15 percent (£1.8m) was given to Manchester City as part of the original 2009 deal that originally brought Sturridge to Chelsea (also note that the original £3.5m transfer fee ballooned to £6.5m after performance clauses were met). The £10.2m transfer fee is offset by the balance of Sturridge's outstanding book value (£1.625m) and wages for six months (£1.69m), leaving Chelsea with a net income of £6,885,000 on Sturridge for the 2012-2013 season.

Since Malouda's transfer fee had a "book value" of ~£6.8m when he signed the 2009 extension, the transfer fee was written down to £1.7m per year for FFP accounting.

Rajkovic, Slobodan info

Rajkovic signed a 3 year deal after coming over from OFK Beograd in 2006. He signed a new 5 year deal in 2007. Due to the extension, I conservatively estimate the 2011-2012 book value on his transfer fee at £610,000. Chelsea received a £1.7m transfer fee from Hamburger SV in August 2011. Given the oustanding book value on the transfer fee that brought Rajkovic from OFK Beograd, Chelsea was left with a net income of £1.09m.
