Chelsea Owner Boehly Holds Secret Talks’ With Manchester United And Newcastle As Manchester City Makes A Claim

Chelsea Fans Write A Strong Letter To Todd Boehly In Response To The Proposed Change

Chelsea owner Todd Boehly reportedly met with Manchester United’s Richard Arnold and Newcastle United’s Amanda Staveley this week..

Boehly completed his takeover of the Blues in May of last year and has since spent around £600 million on new players in two transfer windows as other Premier League clubs look on with envy at Stamford Bridge.

On the pitch, Graham Potter’s side is currently ninth in the Premier League, with Liverpool potentially leapfrogging them tonight if they beat Everton.

And the Chelsea chairman has now sat down for’secret talks’ with Manchester United chief executive Arnold and Newcastle’s Staveley, according to the Metro..

They may have discussed Man City’s situation after the Citizens were charged with 115 alleged financial violations of Premier League rules.

‘City is accused of violating more than 100 rules relating to alleged financial irregularities between 2009-10 and 2017-19, as well as failing to cooperate with an investigation since 2018.

‘On Thursday and Friday, the Premier League hosted chief executives and owners at The Churchill in London, where they discussed the top flight’s long-term strategy.

‘Although it was the new Premier League chairwoman Alison Brittain’s first strategy meeting, she had previously written to all 20 clubs and met with them individually after taking on her role..

Chelsea were on the receiving end of one of the weekend’s poor VAR decisions, with a clear penalty for handball waved away in Saturday’s 1-1 draw with West Ham.

“I thought it was a good save,” Potter said in response to the decision. Sometimes you need your goalkeeper to get you the points.’

“Because it hasn’t been given, I have nothing to say. I’ve only seen a few minutes of it. It appears to be one of those cases where, if given, I doubt it would have been overturned. But since it hasn’t been given, I’m not sure.

“To me, it appears to be a handball. I had no idea Tomas could get down so quickly and save so easily..
