Ted Boehly obsessed with signing £150m star for Chelsea

Chelsea owner Todd Boehly is ‘obsessed’ with signing England World Cup star Jude Bellingham for Chelsea.

Bellingham was the subject of interest from Chelsea in the summer transfer window, but Dortmund made it clear they wouldn’t entertain any sale for one of their most impressive performers

However – it is widely believed that all the big clubs will be eyeing up a possible deal for Bellingham during the January window – rather than getting into a big time summer battle next summer

Ted Boehly has been keen to prove that Chelsea are at the front of the queue to sign the England international from Borussia Dortmund as he looks set to leave the Bundesliga giants in the coming windows

The Bundesliga club value the former Birmingham City youngster at £150million and, according to The Sun Via the Metro, Bohely will pay whatever it takes to beat the likes of Manchester United, Liverpool and Real Madrid to his signature.

Chelsea replaced Thomas Tuchel with Graham Potter earlier this season and the former Brighton manager is expected to preside over a seismic rebuild of the squad – and Boehly wants Bellingham at the club.

if you believe the words of Reporter Iomie Stanley – he will be a great signing for the Blues.

He told IcFootballnews: “The investment may be worth it given Bellingham’s class and his youthful age, with his ability to control play from the middle as well as scoring goals making him a valuable asset.

“Ngolo Kante has been brilliant for Chelsea over his time with the club – but over the last few seasons he has spent more time on the sidelines than actually playing and the Blues know that they need to look to the future.

‘And the fact he wants to come to the Premier League suggests that Chelsea will have a very good chance of getting a deal done for the man – that is for sure

He is a different type of player to Kante – but he is certainly a very special talent and he would be well worth that £128.5 million that is for sure.’
