Todd Boehly is worried about some of the contract situations in Chelsea’s first team and will look to extend the deals of Mason Mount and Reece James when he is officially confirmed as the club’s new owner in the next few weeks, according to reports. The 46-year-old has agreed terms to purchase the Blues from Roman Abramovich for a fee of £4.25billion and was in attendance at Stamford Bridge to watch last year’s European champions in action against Wolves on Saturday.
Boehly recently emerged as Chelsea’s preferred bidder and his purchase is expected to go through over the coming weeks, subject to Premier League and UK government approval, after he signed a contract to buy the club on Friday. The American billionaire, who is also a part-owner of the Los Angeles Dodgers and founder of Eldridge Industries, went on to celebrate the next day by taking to the stands at Stamford Bridge to see his new club face off against Wolves.
It seems as though Boehly is already planning his first steps at Chelsea in order to make a productive start to his spell as their new custodian over the next few months. He is ‘concerned’ by some of the contract situations at the club and will move quickly to tie down Mount and James when his takeover is officially rubber-stamped in the near future, according to Nizaar Kinsella.
