Tuchel admits he can’t go on holiday as Chelsea face busy summer

Chelsea’s takeover by American billionaire Todd Boehly is inching closer after the Premier League approved the proposed purchase of the club.

Los Angeles Dodgers co-owner Boehly had already agreed a £4.25bn purchase of the Blues, with Roman Abramovich’s ownership tenure poised to end after 19 years. And the Premier League has now issued a statement after giving its approval to the takeover.

It comes as Chelsea’s unique transfer situation has been detailed as the club plan to make two marquee signings once the takeover goes through. And Mason Mount could become one of the club’s highest earners after reportedly being offered a bumper new deal by the Blues.

Here are Mirror Football’s latest Chelsea headlines.

Mount offered new deal

Mason Mount is set to be offered a new contract at Chelsea that could make him one of the club’s highest earners.

The England international currently earns around £80,000 a week but could be handed a significant wage increase as the Blues aim to tie down one of their biggest stars. Reports suggest the deal could be worth more than double his current one – moving him into the top five earners of players at the club next season.
