Chelsea’s new owner, Todd Boehly, who is looking to sign Barcelona’s Ousmane Dembele and Raheem Sterling as part of the Blues’ bid for a transfer this summer, has set aside around £150 million (Rp 2.72 trillion). Boehly is fully involved in the club’s transfer policy and last week met with Jorge Mendes, Cristiano Ronaldo’s agent, in his bid to get to know all the important players on the European market. According to British media, Boehly will provide full ammunition to manager Thomas Tuchel in order to overhaul his squad by including at least six new players. A bid for Ronaldo has yet to be determined, but Dembele and Sterling have been Chelsea’s main targets after Romelu Lukaku left on loan to Inter Milan. The club also need two centre-backs to look to Juventus defender Matthijs de Ligt, while Sevilla defender Jules Kunde, who Chelsea have long been eyeing, could join Barcelona. [Antara]
