Following the recent sale of Chelsea by Roman Abramovich, new owner and American business tycoon Todd Boehly is already planning major changes to the club’s squad.
Abramovich, who was in charge of the club for nearly two decades, has put the Premier League giants up for sale after heavy financial penalties by the British government left the Russian billionaire no choice but to sell and exit the UK market.
However, after weeks of uncertainty, the Blues takeover was completed with a recent statement from the club confirming that a consortium led by Boehly had finalized a deal for the five-time Premier League winners.
“We are honored to become Chelsea Football Club’s new goalkeepers,” said Boehly.
“We are all – 100% – every minute of every game. Our vision as owners is clear: we want to make fans proud. Alongside our commitment to developing the youth squad and acquiring top talent, our action plan is to invest in the club for the long term and build on Chelsea’s remarkable history of success. I would personally like to thank the ministers and officials of the UK government and the Premier League for all the work they have done to make this happen.
