Newcastle United have the ability to transform the ‘big six’ into the ‘big even.’

That’s the opinion of new Chelsea owner Todd Boehly, who paid £4.25 billion for the club.

Chelsea’s future had been uncertain since Roman Abramovich was approved by the UK government. As a result, there was a huge race against time for someone to buy the club, as the clock was ticking on their existence.

It was the most expensive takeover in the game’s history, worth far more than the Newcastle deal from 2021.

The Magpies were purchased for £305 million by PIF and co, and the new owners hope to compete at the top of the Premier League.
