£69Billion backed consortium to take over Chelsea and sign City star

chelsea, premier league

Todd Boehly’s consortium will take over at Stamford Bridge this summer – and immediately pinch Riyad Mahrez from Manchester City 

Boehly is said to be worth £5billion, and his offer is backed by Clearlake Capital, who have assets worth over £60billion. And the prospective new owners want to make a massive impact in the summer transfer market.

It is no secret that Thomas Tuchel would like to delve into that transfer kitty and add a couple of attackers to the squad that will have the ability to find the back of the net on a weekly basis, and Mahrez is that type of player

He has netted 21 goals and provided seven assists in all competitions and is easily one of the most creative players in that Manchester City squad, and a player that Pep Guardiola really relies on.

However, his Man City contract expires at the end of the 2022/23 campaign which makes him susceptible to offers this summer, and reports understands there is a lack of progress in negotiating a new deal.

And City Xtra are now reporting that Chelsea have ‘studied the idea’ of signing him, But they will face stiff competition from Ligue 1 leaders PSG if they are to acquire his signature.

Look, Guardiola is the type of manager that gets what he wants, so if he tells the board to make sure that Mahrez is all signed up to stop all the speculation about his future, then that is what will happen

Even though he has not agreed a new contract yet, we would be very surprised to see him depart the club at the end of the current season, he has been brilliant this season

But it will be interesting to see if Boehly actually make a move to sign Mahrez if they take over the club in the summer
