Chelsea co-owner Todd Boehly is interested in purchasing Ligue 1 side Strasbourg and has held talks with club president Marc Keller. Chelsea co-owner Todd Boehly is ‘very interested’ in acquiring a 100% stake in French side Strasbourg, who finished sixth in Ligue 1 last season, according to L’Equipe. They report that Boehly and his financial partners have already spoken with club president Keller, who has been in charge at Strasbourg since 2012.
Chelsea owner Todd Boehly wants to buy Ligue 1 side Strasbourg
It is believed that Boehly and his investment partners would be interested in purchasing the club and strengthening them by loaning players into Strasbourg. But while their interest is concrete, they also hold an interest in investing in the German market. Chelsea became notorious for their relationship with Dutch outfit Vitesse Arnhem, who acted as a feeder club for the Blues and would regularly take players on loan as a result. Any potential deal with Strasbourg would alleviate the burden of trying to find a role for everyone in a bloated squad that Graham Potter is struggling to get to grips with.
