Ownership of the Blues was officially changed from the Russian who has done his laurels and established himself as one of Europe’s greatest over the last twenty years, and was acquired by Todd Boehle & Co., to start officially a new era led by the American businessman who is no stranger to the sports world.

Bohley, who owns the giants Los Angeles Lakers in the NBA and the Dodgers in baseball in his country, will have no easy task of getting things back on track at Chelsea, and above all, of gaining the confidence of the masses who, after Abramovich’s successful attack, struggle to face his successor, regardless of his name, stature, or promises.

A subscription, but the report also indicated the possibility of Bohle using it always, but in the shadows because of his experience necessary for the development of the stadium.

The issue of stadium development was one of the pivotal points in Bohli’s acceptance of a bid to buy Chelsea, as he puts together an ambitious plan worth £1.25bn euros under the guidance of several seasoned engineers, led by owners Jane Smith and David Hickey. of the plan Abramovich had already drawn up to develop and expand Stamford Bridge.

Bohle’s Chelsea board will also include Hansorg Weiss, the Swiss businessman, and Mark Walter, co-owner of the Boehle Dodgers, and the two are already part of the alliance that successfully bought the club, and they have a strong and long-standing relationship with the American, which explains the rapprochement with the Blues.

Transfers the Liverpool way

According to information from Goal’s correspondent for Chelsea, ‘Nezar Kinsella’, the Blues’ transfer policy will change under the leadership of the new alliance, there won’t be big spending like Abramovich did, especially in its early years, and the club would adopt a more conservative system in line with developments in the world of football and strict financial rules.

Another point the Bohli alliance will strive to strengthen is the Blues’ academy, which under the leadership of Abramovich and Granovskaya has turned into a great source of strength, whether providing the first team of players like Mason Mount and Reece James currently, or a source of money with his elements who may not technically benefit Chelsea but sell them like Tammy Abraham and others for large sums.

But one point that worries Bohli and his partners, according to information from Jules, is some poor transfer decisions in recent times, including the huge sum paid to buy Romelu Lukaku, and the Belgian’s big failure since his return, such as the new administration wants to avoid such operations, analyze the reasons for their occurrence and prevent them from happening again in the future.
