This is a decisive step in the process of selling Chelsea. The consortium led by Todd Boehly, an American businessman, has signed an agreement to buy the London club from Roman Abramovich, against 4 billion pounds, or about 4.68 billion euros, according to the Telegraph.
If confirmed, this deal will need to be cleared by the UK government and the Premier League before the sale is official. However, the process should accelerate in the coming weeks. The license enjoyed by Chelsea to assess in the Premier League expires on May 31, due to the sanctions imposed by the British authorities against the Russian oligarchs, the war authorized in Ukraine by Moscow.
