Todd Boehly wants to give Thomas Tüchel a competitive squad next year after months of uncertainty over sanctions against former owner Roman Abramovich
Chelsea were one of the clubs affected by the sanctions imposed on several Russian oligarchs following the Russian invasion of Ukraine, with Roman Abramovich leaving the London club after two decades. However, months of doubts over the Blues’ future seem to be over with the arrival of new owner Todd Boehly.
The American will pay 5 billion euros to buy the club and is looking to make a huge capital injection into the transfer budget to put Tüchel’s side back on the path to glory.
According to the Evening Standard, the new owner intends to sign several players so the team won’t be overtaken by their rivals.
The English club will lose names like Antonio Rüdiger and Andreas Christensen at zero cost, with vacancies in the central defensive area still to be filled and there remains the situation of Reece James and Mason Mount, whose contract renewals are priorities for the new management.
