Gift of Todd
Chelsea incoming owner Todd Boehly is set to splash the cash this summer once his £4.25billion takeover of the club is completed.
That is according to incoming director Daniel Finkelstein, who told TalkTV: “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.
“‘I think Chelsea is going to get, in Todd Boehly, a fabulous owner – I’m really impressed by him. I was very impressed before I met him, I think in a similar way to him about sport so it was a sort of meeting of minds anyway.
“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 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”
