New Chelsea owner will begin summer transfer work right away

Todd Boehly will get to work on transfers and big contract decisions the moment his takeover of Chelsea is confirmed, writes James Robson in the Evening Standard today.

This shouldn’t be taken necessarily as a big declaration of lavish spending – it’s just an acknowledgement that the club have lost crucial months of work since the takeover began, and will need to work flat out from now on just to catch up with their rivals, who have been able to steal a march on the Blues on every front.

Two senior players are already confirmed to be leaving on free transfers, and several more seem to be close to the exit door. That means just bringing the squad back to its current level will require serious work, let alone improving it.

So before fans get too excited about a Roman-style spree, they should be aware that just standing still will require some major forward motion.


  1. Great to read, be mindful though that this goes hand in hand with those sponsors who stood by CFC through this ordeal. Heads up to Trivago, give Yokohama another try as loyalty works both ways. While money is an important factor it’s truly more powerful when complimented by devoted, releable and loyal sponsors. New owners, New book, New chapter, New beginning. CFC will always be an example of the difference between the good and the great. Is there anything really which has been tossed at CFC off the Pitch that has not been withstood. The worst is definitely behind us. It will and can only get better from hereon. Buckle up ad enjoy the ride.
