Share

A consortium led by Todd Boehly, owner of Major League baseball’s Los Angeles Dodgers and the NBA’s L.A. Lakers, has emerged as the preferred bidder to purchase Chelsea FC from Roman Abramovich.

If everything gets done by the deadline of May 31, Boehly should be the next owner of Chelsea, but the process has hit a couple snags. Things are getting complicated with Abramovich reportedly seeking a repayment of the 1.6 GBP loan he made to CFC.

Blues Team News

Holding midfielder Jorginho (undisclosed), Barcelona bound Andreas Christensen (illness), Everton man Ross Barkley (illness), and midfield maestro N’Golo Kante (undisclosed) are all doubts for this one while Callum Hudson-Odoi (calf) and Ben Chilwell (knee) remain sidelined.

Chelsea have won just once in their last four, taking only 4/12 possible points in that span, and leaving an opportunity for London rivals Arsenal and Tottenham to usurp their place in the Premier League table.
