Roman Abramovich’s lavish spending helped Chelsea land 19 major trophies in 19 years. Once the £4.25billion takeover is completed, this summer represents the first test of Todd Boehly’s willingness to spend.
“It’s been a strange moment for the club with the change in owners,” James said. “It’s going to be different moving forward. The ambition is still going to be the same. We’re a massive club in the world and our aim is to win every trophy we can.”
On Boehly, he added: “I spoke to him briefly. I know he’s passionate about the club, his aim is to win. We’re not just going to change to a club that’s participating… everyone that plays at this club is ambitious.
“You’re playing at this club for a reason. The quality of players is so high. No matter the owner, we’re the ones that go out and perform on the pitch and next season we will have more competitions to play and hopefully get a few more trophies under our belt.”
