Chelsea new owners to make big decisions in the upcoming transfer window

Chelsea

According to Daily Star journalist Paul Brown, the new Chelsea owners will want to make a statement in the summer transfer window, with Chelsea expected to be in for a very long summer transfer window.

Roman Abramovich was sanctioned by the UK Government following the invasion of Ukraine by Russia. Roman Abramovich then put the club up for sale in March. THE UK Government also sanctioned the club massively after sanctioning the owner. They have been pushing the club to be sold ever since.

Reports last month suggested that two bids were on the final list for the club takeover. One bid is being led by Todd Boehly, who owns Major League Baseball franchise LA Dodgers. The LA Dodgers owners bid is reportedly worth £2.5billion.

While the second bid is led by Sir Jim Ratcliffe, whose offer was worth a reported £4.25billion. But it was reported that the bid was rejected and Todd Boahly’s bid is set to expect. The takeover is expected to be completed in the next two weeks.

Is Chelsea set for a long summer transfer window?

A lot of exits are expected around Stamford Bridge in the summer transfer window. The likes of Antonio Rüdiger and Andreas Christensen look set to leave the club on a free transfer in the summer. Reports suggest that both the defenders are set to join Spanish giants Barcelona and Real Madrid. While César Azpilicueta’s new contract is still not signed and sealed as things stand. Left wing-back Marcos Alonso is also close to a return to Spain on a free transfer in the summer.

Paul Brown’s verdict on the blues’ new owners and the summer transfer window

Talking to GIVEMESPORT about Chelsea’s new owners and the summer transfer window, Paul Brown said:

“They’re losing players without getting a fee for them and the days of billionaire owners spending vast amounts of money every summer at Chelsea might be over, depending on who takes over at the club.

“I’m sure whoever comes in will want to make some kind of statement in their first transfer window, but the kind of figures you’d have to spend to get close to Manchester City and Liverpool are so high that, over the long-term, I think you have to wonder whether anyone who buys the club will really push the boat out and have that kind of commitment,” he added.
