New Chelsea owners will ‘make a statement’ through a string of summer signings

Chelsea

Chelsea’s takeover episode seems to be getting lengthy and lengthy. Since Roman Abramovich has put the club on sale, several rumours are doing the rounds regarding the next owners. Three bidders are still in the running, as the process hasn’t been concluded. Todd Boehly consortium, Sir Martin Broughton consortium and Stephen Pagliuca consortium are the ones fighting for the takeover. But whoever be the new Chelsea owners, they want to start their helm by making a statement at the club.

Though three remain in the fray, it is understood that Todd Boehly is the preferred man. Recent reports suggest that Boehly’s consortium is the favourite to win the race and take over the club. Todd Boehly owns Major League Baseball’s LA Dodgers and has a net worth of £3.6 billion according to Forbes. His Chelsea bid of £2.5 billion is expected to topple other offers.

Daily Star’s Paul Brown has given a further insight so as to what to expect when the new owners take over Chelsea. The journalist has revealed that Chelsea are staring at a busy summer with the incomings owners ready to splash the cash. The Blues fell flat after they were expected to challenge Manchester City and Liverpool for the league. But the incoming owners want to ensure that Chelsea gets into that title race next season. As a result, Brown says that the new men at the helm will make a statement through big signings.

New Chelsea owners to back up Tuchel with bolstering signings

Chelsea had developed a knack for spending big in the market under Roman Abramovich. Since the summer of 2020, the Blues have spent around £330 million on transfers. New owners are reportedly keen to take forward this tradition at Chelsea. According to Brown, the incoming owners are ready to invest heavily in the summer transfer window. Both to help Thomas Tuchel and flaunt their financial power as well.

While speaking to GIVEMESPORT, Brown said, “The problem is nobody knows how much money Chelsea will have to spend in the summer. 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.”

He further added, “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.”

While Brown suggests that it will be difficult for new Chelsea owners to splash the money right away, however, it is not impossible as well. It would be brave and bold to spend big in the very first transfer window. Nonetheless, if the new men do so, they would be a step closer to winning over the Chelsea fans.
