Premier League Demand Proof Chelsea Aren’t Owned By Saudi Arabia Amid News of 3 Blue Stars ‘On Verge’ of Joining Saudi Clubs



Chelsea 'Desperate' To Offload One of Todd Boehly Big Signing After Disappointing Season

Premier League officials have requested evidence to confirm that Chelsea is not under the ownership of Saudi Arabia, following reports that three Chelsea stars are on the brink of joining Saudi Pro League clubs.

N’Golo Kante has recently made a move to Al-Ittihad on a free transfer after his contract with Chelsea expired, and he is expected to be followed by several former teammates.

According to reliable sources, Kalidou Koulibaly is set to join Al-Hilal, Hakim Ziyech is heading to Al-Nassr, and Edouard Mendy is on his way to Al-Ahli, as agreements were reportedly reached yesterday, and their contracts are now being prepared.

The departure of these players from West London to the Middle East has raised concerns among football authorities.

The Telegraph has reported that Premier League officials have sought confirmation from Chelsea, requesting proof that Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund (PIF) was not involved in Todd Boehly and Clearlake Capital’s takeover of the club last summer.


Chelsea has reportedly provided the necessary evidence to satisfy Premier League authorities, indicating that there are no conflicts of interest in their ownership structure.

During discussions last summer, Todd Boehly, one of Chelsea’s co-owners, commented on the Saudi-owned Newcastle United and their increased financial power, considering them now part of the Premier League’s “big seven.”


In October 2021, a Saudi-backed consortium completed a £300 million takeover of Newcastle, and under Eddie Howe’s management, the club secured a fourth-place finish in the previous season.

In contrast, since Boehly’s arrival as co-owner and his replacement of Roman Abramovich, Chelsea has spent a significant £653.7 million on 20 players.

As the situation unfolds and Chelsea faces scrutiny regarding its ownership and transfer activities, further clarity will be sought to ensure transparency and compliance with Premier League regulations.
