Brighton have released their accounts for the 2021/22 season, revealing the record amount Chelsea have spent to compensate the Seagulls for Graham Potter.
Graham Potter took over as Chelsea manager last September, replacing Thomas Tuchel. In order for the Blues to take over the 47-year-old technician, they had to pay heavily to Brighton, where he was under contract. In order to even get his signature, they had to compensate the Seagulls with a record sum.
From the balance sheet released by Brighton, the amount that Chelsea have taken out of their coffers, which totals 24 million euros, has emerged.
This equalizer is a record in football history. It should be noted that Potter is also well paid by Londoners as he is paid €13 million annually.
