SAVVY spenders Chelsea have saved an incredible £19million per YEAR after selling six big earners this summer.

The Blues paid a club-record £97.5million on Inter Milan striker Romelu Lukaku this month.

And they also handed over £4.5m to take Saul Niguez on a season-long loan from Atletico Madrid.

However, after offloading ELEVEN players on permanent deals, Chelsea pocketed £140m.

That makes for a tasty profit of over £38m.

And Blues chiefs are saving even more money as the exits of six significant earners means they can tuck away a further £19m this year.

Olivier Giroud was earning £110,000-a-week before he was sold to AC Milan for £2m.

Likewise, Victor Moses pocketed £75k each week before his £4.5m switch to Spartak Moscow.

Davide Zappacosta was another on big wages, making £70k a week until joining Atalanta for £8m.

And although the likes of Tino Livramento and Lewis Bate were on academy-level pay before their exits, other former youngsters banked some serious dough for Chelsea.

Tammy Abraham’s £38.5m move to Roma will save the Blues £58k per week.

And Kurt Zouma’s £30m West Ham switch takes off £40k each week.

Fikayo Tomori’s £30m AC Milan move saves a further £14k per week.

And it means between just those six players, Chelsea have freed up £367,000-a-week on the wage bill.

That makes for a grant total of £19,084,000 per year.

And the European champions can now put that away for a rainy day when reinforcements are needed.
