Chelsea have had their transfer ban temporarily suspended by the Court of Arbitration for Sport AKA CAS.

The west London club were imposed a 2-window ban (i.e. until 2011) on buying any new players back in September, after they were found guilty of inducing Katuta to breach his contract with French club Lens in 2007. However in a dramatic U-turn which will please only Chelsea fans (if only they could see Fergie’s face now) they will now be allowed to spend big in the upcoming January transfer window, if need be.

The decision is on a firm temporary basis and could yet be enforced, while CAS look further into the matter. Meanwhile Katuta has been ordered to pay compensation to Lens thought to be in the region of £710,000 for which the player and Chelsea are both accountable for. Chelsea are also ordered to pay £118,000.

Already riding high at the top of the Premiership after only 3 months, with numerous emphatic big score wins, you wouldn’t be a wise man to bet against Chelsea picking up another title. Or would you?
