Chelsea Brutally Trolled After Careless Tweet Following Transfer Ban

It appears that Chelsea's Twitter team had forgotten about the club receiving a transfer ban last week after their "Who would you want to sign in the summer" tweet was met with some brutal responses from fans on social media. Did you see it?

Last week, the London side was slapped with a two-window transfer ban after it came to light that the club had illegally signed certain players when they were under the age of 18. This means that, pending an expected appeals process, Chelsea will be unable to make any new additions to the team until June 2020.

Almost a week later, Chelsea posted a story on their website accompanied by a tweet with a headline that read: "Who would you want to sign in the summer?"

Fans did not hold back and made their feelings known about the seemingly careless tweet, which was later deleted.

Here's the tweet: 

Here are some of the responses:

Do you think the transfer ban will hinder Chelsea going forward?
