American billionaire Todd Boehly has won the race to take over Chelsea from Roman Abramovich. His bid which toppled others in the running mounts up to a staggering £4.25 billion. Recently, Daniel Finkelstein has provided some details as to what to expect from the new owners. A member of the House of Lords, Finkelstein is set to be appointed as the new Director of the club. The incoming director appeared on TalkTV where he spoke about Todd Boehly’s plans for Chelsea.

However, Finkelstein told that the sale is still in its early stages despite reaching an agreement. Finkelstein said, “We’re still at the early stages – he’s had a sale agreement with Chelsea and now the government has got to license the sale because it’s a sanctioned club and the Premier League has got to decide that I’m a fit director”. But that hasn’t stopped him from suggesting that exciting times are waiting for Chelsea.

The Director-to-be talks about Boehly’s investment in Chelsea

Finkelstein began by singing praises of the new owner Todd Boehly, who was in attendance for Chelsea’s home game against Wolves. “I think Chelsea is going to get, in Todd Boehly, a fabulous owner – I’m impressed by him. I was very impressed before I met him, I think in a similar way to him about the sport so it was a sort of meeting of minds anyway”.

Finkelstein whose appointment as the Chelsea director is imminent, further tells that Boehly has got some ‘big plans’. He sounded quite excited while explaining about the. Finkelstein started, “I really like him but I think he’s also got big plans. So as a Chelsea fan who was worried when the club had to be sold, I’m looking at how the club can be made better than just how we can stop it becoming worse.”

The Englishman then talked about the most anticipated part since the takeover; the spending and the investment. However, the director emphasized that the new Chelsea owners won’t blindly splash the cash. He implemented that the new board will carve out a strategy as money will be spent ‘wisely’.

“The job of the owner is judged by whether we spend money wisely, not just how much we spend. The truth is there is a lot of money behind Todd Boehly’s bid, there will be a lot of investment in the club but it will also be invested wisely,” continued the incoming Chelsea director.

Finkelstein’s words indicate an intriguing summer for the Blues. However, Boehly also seems to be a man who won’t simply dish out the money like his predecessor. The incoming director appears to suggest that the LA Dodgers’ owner will look before he leaps while signing a cheque at Chelsea.
