If you’ve been following sports news, you will realize that Chelsea will lose three essential squad members in the summer. Antonio Rüediger looks set for Real Madrid, Andreas Christensen may become a Barcelona player next season, and even captain Cesar Azpilicueta may end up leaving the club at the end of the season.
It appears that a new Chelsea owner could be announced before the end of May, after the bids received from different consortiums and groups have been trimmed down to three. What will this new ownership mean to Chelsea Football Club and the rest of the English Premier League?
What will new ownership mean for Chelsea?
The sanctions have prevented Chelsea from negotiating and sealing deals with this trio whose contracts are expiring at the end of the season.

New ownership will immediately raise the sanctions placed on Chelsea Football Club by the UK government. This would imply that Chelsea can function normally, sign players, negotiate contracts, and open up all other restrictions placed on the club.
By the time the new owner comes on board, Chelsea may be able to renew the expiring contract of players, and if renewing the players contract appears to have sailed, Chelsea can enter the transfer market to poach replacements without fundraising rounds.
