Ahead of the summer window, an excited Todd Boehly was quizzed on the chances of Chelsea completing huge deals;

“If he says, Neymar is the man, am sure I will shake the earth with his transfer cause it’s gonna be one of the greatest transfer deals of a new era.
“We want to be able to compete strongly for trophies and the time I spoke with Tuchel, he says a bigger stronger squad can achieve us this aim but maybe not in the next season but time taken, we will be there.
“Building a stronger Chelsea squad is at the top of our list and we will do what it takes to reach that level we envisage.”
