Every Chelsea transfer completed under Todd Boehly in 399m spend after Mykhailo Mudryk deal

Chelsea’s change of ownership was a scary time for many. Understandably so, too. After 19 years of Roman Abramovich as owner, the first new custodian at Stamford Bridge took charge, and for many young fans it was a move away from all that they had known at the club. That is without taking into account the effect it had on the club’s employees and the backdrop of the war in Ukraine, as well as the restrictions that were placed upon on the club after sanctions were imposed on Abramovich.

Chaos and trophies has been the mantra for much of the club’s last two decades and what was to come next needed to hit a very specific criteria for supporters. Not only a movement towards improving on the pitch after five seasons of league mediocrity and decline but also consistent performances during that.

The incoming of American group Clearlake Capital, backed by Todd Boehly, Hansjorg Wyss and other co-owners, worried some. The narrative surrounding clubs owned by businessmen from the USA hasn’t been positive in the last few years, with some supporters happier with funds coming from the Middle East.

That was, in part, due to the almost guaranteed sustained money being pumped back into the club. Whereas the stereotype for American owners has become people looking to make a profit, state-owned clubs have heavily backed their sides with little regard for making money.

Since Boehly has been in charge at SW6 things haven’t gone how many would have predicted. Not only has the internal structure been ripped to pieces, Thomas Tuchel has been replaced and the club are mid-table in the Premier League. That isn’t down to a lack of investment, though. Chelsea have spent over £350m on new players for the men’s team alone.

The success on the pitch hasn’t come yet but the project being worked towards is clear for many to see, even if not everyone believes Graham Potter is the man to bring it. That being said, it’s not unfeasible that the team that kicks off the second season under Boehly is completely different to the one that he inherited.
