Chelsea had the highest wage bill in the Premier league in 2015-16 season. The wage bill of Chelsea for 2018 was £225 million a £10 million increment from last season due to contract extensions.
Under Frank Lampard, Chelsea are now more based on academy youngsters, and the Englishman appears to have firmly laid down the law with his young side.
The list, which was published on Reddit, sets out the amount of money the players will be deducted should they break any of the agreed rules, and is signed at the bottom by Lampard and dated August 27.
A list of the internal player fines for this season has been leaked, revealing Blues stars are hit with a £20,000 fine if they are late for the start of training.
