BREAKING: Chelsea new owner Todd Boehly outlines his transfer plans following Wolves’ draw, with the club poised to invest millions this summer.
Todd Boehly has been appointed as the next Chelsea owner at Stamford BRDIGE, succeeding Roman Abramovich.
However, after earning the respect of every Chelsea supporter over his 19-and-a-half years with the club, it’s time to look ahead and see what the American billionaire has in store for the club.
Meanwhile, the 46-year-old businessman departed Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon knowing he had a lot of work ahead of him.
Boehly has made it obvious that he is willing to put a lot of money into the first team, and this summer is shaping up to be vital for the American, whose consortium reached an agreement to buy out Abramovich on Friday.
Before the transaction can go through, the Government and the Premier League must give their consent, although there aren’t believed to be any roadblocks.
The defense, as well as the midfield, require additions, since Jorginho’s performance is waning and N’Golo Kante has been prone to injury.
Chelsea must make a significant choice on Romelu Lukaku, who cost £97.5 million, while Timo Werner, Hakim Ziyech, and Christian Pulisic have battled with consistency.
Todd Boehly, on the other hand, isn’t afraid to spend money. The American businessman strives to strike a balance between signing stars and making money, so that both fans and owners are happy.
The 46-year-old has a history of lavish spending on his baseball team, the Los Angeles Dodgers, with a reported payroll cost of over £200 million.
Once his £2.5 billion contract with the Premier League and the government is approved, Boehly is dedicated to investing in the team.
