They were unable to earn any commercial revenue or make any moves in the transfer market after Abramovich had his UK assets, including Chelsea FC, frozen.

However, after the UK government handed jurisdiction of the takeover process to Raine Group, a vigorous process has gone underway to determine the new owner of The Blues.

With intense interest from a number of parties including the Ricketts Family, Sir Marin Broughton and Sir Lewis Hamilton, and Stephen Pagliuca, the new owner looks set to be Todd Boehly.

Boehly is set to be cleared to but the club for a colossal fee of £4bn, with £2.5bn of this to be paid up front and another £1.75bn to be invested over the next decade by the LA Dodgers owner.
