THE BALL – Era Todd Boehly can start with a bang (Chelsea)

Chelsea’s new owner, Todd Boehly intends to start the consulate in London with a signing of great magnitude. According to the ESPNthe American businessman is studying the possibility of bringing Neymar to Stamford Bridge and has already advanced even with the first contacts.

The Brazilian’s intention to leave PSG has been widely publicized and the fact that he has Thiago Silva in the squad (with whom Neymar shares the dressing room in the Brazil national team) and Thomas Tuchel in charge (who spent time at PSG between 2018 and 2021) help to entice the 30-year-old extreme. The only question is the magnitude of the operation, as PSG spent €222 million in 2017 and intends to recoup some of the money spent on what is the world’s record transfer.

If confirmed, it will be a paradigm shift in relation to Roman Abramovich, who took the reins of the club in 2003. If it is true that the Russian oligarch invested heavily in the Chelsea squad during the club’s leadership, his consulate began with the hiring two goalkeepers at… zero cost. The Austrian Jurgen Macho and the Italian Marco Ambrosio arrived at Stamford Bridge on the same day as Abramovich, but they can hardly be counted among the most influential parts of the team, as they have played together eight games.
