Chelsea’s transfer budget under Todd Boehly will reportedly be on par with Roman Abramovich.
Blues supporters should be excited about the updaet from CBS Sports journalist Ben Jacobs regarding the takeover.
He explains the London club won’t be restricted financially under the new ownership, with transfer signings likely to continue in the same way they did during Abramovich’s 20-year tenure at Stamford Bridge.
It’s been a golden couple of decades at the Bridge where some of the biggest names in football have been signed for small fortunes.
“They are not (Chelsea) on a threshold where they can’t spend big, what Boehly spends is likely to be framed around the same planned budget that Abramovich would’ve spent,” Jacobs informed ChelseaFC365’s podcast.
Chelsea’s transfer budget under Todd Boehly
It’s been confirmed that a consortium led by American businessman Boehly have agreed to buy Chelsea, albeit the takeover deal still needs regulatory approvals before it can be rubberstamped.
The fact that the new ownership plan to inject money into transfers at an Abramovich-sized rate is a big plus point.
Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel should definitely be asking for a few key signings ahead of next season, especially because the Premier League’s top two Manchester City and Liverpool are setting such high standards.
In addition, the Blues need to make sure they don’t lose any more of their star players, with Antonio Rudiger leaving the club this summer. That’s why it’s great a report claims Boehly is keen to reward Mason Mount and Reece James with new contracts.
