Since March 2, Roman Abramovich has placed Chelsea up for sale and finding new owners has been a lengthy process.
Todd Boehly’s consortium was chosen as the preferred bidder, and the club accepted their offer.
Boehly and his partners must now pass the Premier League’s ownership and board of directors tests before the UK Government approves the sale by issuing a new license to finalize the transaction.
Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel agreed it was excellent news ahead of Saturday’s game against Wolves, but he wants things resolved up swiftly so that recruiting preparation for next season can begin on schedule.
“Not relief,” he remarked, “but it gives us hope that terms will be reached.”
“Hopefully, the process will be shortened and move ahead as quickly as possible, allowing us to act without fear of being sanctioned.” It’s fantastic news.”
Todd Boehly witnessed a 2-2 draw against Wolves live at Stamford Bridge, and Tuchel would be frustrated that he was unable to offer the new owners a victory.
