According to reports, Chelsea is getting ready to talk to Jude Bellingham and Declan Rice about transfers.
The two midfielders are expected to speak with Todd Boehly and his team in the coming weeks, according to the Telegraph.
At the World Cup, Boehly was able to see his two targets from the same vantage point.
The strong bond that Rice and Bellingham created served as the foundation for England’s 6-2 thrashing of Iran on Monday.
Bellingham was free to set up wherever he pleased on the field while Rice was expected to sit deeper and put out any flames.
He covered the ground with great assurance, poise, and control while also having the ball at his feet.
The 19-year-old was “outrageous,” according to Jermaine Jenas, who called him in a commentary.
His powerful yet elegant performance was capped off by him scoring his first goal for his senior national team while playing in his first World Cup.
However, Bellingham should be grateful to his midfield partner for giving him the freedom to speak his mind.
Borussia Dortmund’s teenager might have been more restrained if Rice hadn’t been hiding in the background and carrying out the unsung work of reducing and recycling.
In the end, the two made a fantastic team.
Gareth Southgate or any other England manager will hope to facilitate this duet for at least the next ten years, and possibly longer.
Boehly is likely considering the same thing, but for his Chelsea team.
The owner of Stamford Bridge is very concerned about the club’s future, and it appears that Rice and Bellingham are seen as the project’s keystone players.
After Liverpool and Manchester United’s sales decisions, supporters of Arsenal and Chelsea sent an ownership warning
In an effort to boost the club’s development, Manchester United has disclosed that the company’s board of directors is looking at strategic alternatives, one of which is the club’s prospective sale. Several weeks have passed since it was revealed that Fenway Sports Group (FSG) is willing to sell Liverpool.
The news has been well received by United supporters. While fans are dissatisfied with the club’s continued need to use their own funds to pay off debt rather than the Glazers investing their own money in the organization, they are also angry at how remote the owners have been over the previous 17 years.
The lack of investment in recent years has also irritated Liverpool supporters, but because Jurgen Klopp has done such an excellent job managing Merseyside for the majority of the previous ten years, demonstrations have been kept to a minimal.
Both United and Liverpool experienced prosperous eras under the Glazer’s and FSG, respectively, despite a clear lack of affection between the two clubs’ followers and their respective ownership in recent years.
Between 2007 and 2013, United won five Premier League championships. However, after Sir Alex Ferguson left Old Trafford, United’s decline began. Since FSG acquired the team in 2010, Liverpool has won numerous prestigious awards, including the Premier League and UEFA Champions League.
The Glazers and FSG do seem to be aggressively investigating other commercial options, though. If that is the case, supporters of Arsenal and Chelsea who have been seeing the two situations from a distance might be a little alarmed by the Americans’ lack of sympathy for the soccer teams they manage.
For a number of years, the Kroenkes were unpopular at Arsenal, but ever since there were significant demonstrations outside the Emirates in 2021, they have paid much closer attention to the fans’ needs.
Josh Kroenke, Stan Kroenke’s son and the company’s heir, has made it quite obvious that the family does care about the club and its success, dispelling the idea that the endeavor is merely a business to them.
Kroenke regularly participates in fan forums and also shows up at practice sessions and games. Since the demonstrations, the ownership has supported the Gunners in the transfer market as well. They have also placed a great deal of trust in Mikel Arteta, the manager, and Edu, the sports director, both of whom have been instrumental in changing the club’s culture.
Todd Boehly, who took over for Roman Abramovich, who assisted Chelsea in winning 19 major championships between 2003 and 2022, is tasked with the challenging challenge of succeeding him. He participates actively in Stamford Bridge proceedings and sporting decisions, just as Kroenke. However, his project is just getting started.
Supporters of Arsenal and Chelsea will primarily be hoping that their owners stay involved for the right reasons; otherwise, things could turn out badly, as they have at Liverpool and United.
