Chelsea owner Todd Boehly is known to be aiming to duplicate Manchester City’s blueprint by organising a network of feeder clubs across the globe. The American is alleged to be keen to revamp the entire business model at Stamford Bridge and that is ready to incorporate establishing close ties with teams around the globe because the City Football Group has already done.
Boehly has already overseen some significant changes on the club since taking charge and it appears he has grand plans going forward. Chelsea’s latest owner has already ousted Bruce Buck, Marina Granovskaia and Petr Cech from their respective roles before sacking head coach Thomas Tuchel last week, a matter of days after backing him with a transfer spend in excess of £250m this summer.
Graham Potter has arrived as his successor and it seems the changes in west London are set to proceed. In line with The Sun, Boehly has plans to repeat City’s off-field success of utilising connections to other clubs from the world over.
The 48-year-old is known to be wanting to establish a network of feeder clubs across the globe to rival and eventually exceed the business model of the present Premier League champions. The aim is to see Chelsea improve their scouting and development system across Europe and beyond, with the club’s medium to long run plan involving the buying of stakes in continental teams.
