0

After spending without counting, Chelsea wants to fill her crates. For this, the Blues are counting on the millions from Saudi Arabia.

On May 30, 2022, Chelsea was officially bought. Since then, the new management, played by Todd Boehly, has been spending without counting or almost. 

Indeed, Londoners have dropped millions and millions to recruit players. But for the moment, the return on investment is long overdue.

Last year, the Blues finished in twelfth place in the championship and did not qualify for one of the European Cups. This season, Mauricio Pochettino’s troops left to achieve the same feat, they who score in eleventh position after 28 days (39 points). 

This is not really good news for leaders, who want to participate in a European competition. In terms of image as well as in terms of sport and finance, this is very important in the life of a professional club.

Especially since Chelsea recently announced the loss of 105.3 million euros before taxes. To fill their coffers in order to continue recruiting but also to move forward on the project of the new stadium, the Blues will therefore have to find other means, they who must recover at least 117 million euros. 

This will include the arrival of new partners and the sale of certain items considered undesirable. To achieve this, Todd Boehly decided to turn to Saudi Arabia. The Telegraph reveals that the president of Chelsea went there to meet the bosses of Riyadh Air and other companies to become the club’s new sponsor next season. 

At the same time, Boehly recently met in Riyadh with the Minister of Sports of Saudi Arabia and the director of football of the Saudi Pro League, Michael Emenalo.

Several players on the transfer list

The English media indicates that neither party has specified the purpose of this meeting. But the Telegraph assures that this proves “Chelsea’s willingness to raise funds by selling players in the Saudi Pro League”. 

They already sent players last year, namely Kalidou Koulibaly (Al-Hilal) and Edouard Mendy (Al Ahli). They had also tried to place Romelu Lukaku or Hakim Ziyech. But it didn’t go to the end.

The English intend to achieve this this time, they who have already identified the players to be put in the Saudi Pro League. Like last year, they want to send Romelu Lukaku to the SPL. The Belgian is on loan this season to AS Roma. A club that will obviously find it difficult to pay its salary and its release clause.

The amount of it is 43.2 million euros. This is the amount that Chelsea hopes to recover in Saudi Arabia. The Blues also want Kepa Arrizabalaga to be on the trip. The doorman was loaned to Real Madrid this season after the serious injury of Thibaut Courtois. If the Merengues thought for a while to keep it, it is not necessarily the trend today, since it is ahead of Andriy Lunin. 

The London club also intends to separate from Marc Cucurella, Armando Broja and Trevoh Chalobah. But a priori, they will not be offered to the Saudis. Finally, Raheem Sterling has already been the subject of big offers from SPL last year but he has resisted. 

LeTelegraph explains that he should not change his mind. But it will be necessary to monitor his situation since Chelsea still intends to recruit for his position. It should still go in all directions at the Blues!
