Chelsea, finally has a new owner. After some time of uncertainty about the future of the Blues, a group of investors led by Todd Boehly, the owner of the Los Angeles Dodgers, Los Angeles Lakers, Los Angeles Sparks and many other known companies, has purchased the London club. Chelsea now have the third richest owners in the Premier League.
