A couple days ago American billionaire Todd Boehly was officially confirmed by Chelsea as the successor to Roman Abramovich. He was in the stands to watch their latest game which was a 2-2 draw with Wolves, and he is now mapping out his transfer plans for when he is pen on paper confirmed as the club’s next owner.
It is rumoured that he is prepared to heavily invest in the Chelsea team once his £4.25bn takeover of the London club is finalized. This includes the men’s team, women’s team and the Chelsea academy and also an investment into the clubs stadium ‘Stamford Bridge’.
Boehly; also owner of LA Dogers baseball team – hopes to make ‘heavy investment’ this summer to bolster Chelsea’s transfer business, as reported by the evening standard, amid fears the club have been left behind after months of crippling sanctions.
From personal experience hes seen his side struggle against Bruno Lage’s men, so he is very aware of the importance of boosting the squad in the summer transfer market to ensure they remain competitive with Man City and Liverpool next season, after the Blues fell away from the title race at the end of last year.
The club’s future now seems to be looking up after a rough couple of months of sanctions with Boehly in place to take over, and he is ready to back the manager and give Tuchel the reinforcements he really needs to build up his squad
