Chelsea transfer news live: Todd Boehli takeover as latest update complete

Todd Boehly’s takeover is officially complete.

The US takes ownership from controversial former owner Roman Abramovich, who was sanctioned by the UK government over his ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Bohli said: “We are honored to be the new patrons of Chelsea Football Club.

“We are all – 100% – in every minute of every match. Our vision as owners is clear: we want to make fans proud.

“In line with our commitment to developing the young squad and finding the best talent, we plan to invest in the club over the long term and build on Chelsea’s remarkable history of success.

“I would like to personally thank the British Government and the ministers and officials in the Premier League for all their work in making this happen.”

The consortium also includes Wyss Foundation founder Hansjörg Wyss and Guggenheim Capital co-founder and CEO Mark Walter.

Chelsea are reportedly ready to offer summer transfer target Ousmane Dembele better terms.

The winger is out of contract at Barcelona at the end of June and could join another club for free.

Many of Europe’s elite, including Chelsea and Man Utd, are keen on the Frenchman.

But Blues boss Thomas Tuchel has requested the club to complete Dembele’s signing, according to Fichtjes.

Real Madrid have made an “official offer” for Chicago Fire goalkeeper Gaga Slonina.

The keeper was once a target of Chelsea before the government ban was imposed.

Born in 2004, this shot stopper also has fans in Bayern Munich.

And finally, Inter Milan CEO Giuseppe Marotta says the club is not in a hurry about possible deals for Paulo Dybala and Romelu Lukaku.

Lukaku is being linked with a return to Inter after just one season at Chelsea.

Marotta said: “There’s no rush on our part, we can’t rush.

“Of course we’ve already started laying the groundwork, trying to get a jump on things.”
