The Chelsea Supporters’ Trust (CST) have congratulated Todd Boehly’s consortium on their impending takeover of the club, insisting - “the hard work starts now”.

Earlier on Saturday morning, Chelsea confirmed in a short statement released via their official website that a ‘final and definitive agreement’ over the record-breaking £4.25billion sale of the club had now been reached, with the takeover expected to be fully completed on Monday (May 30).

That comes after the Premier League and UK Government both green-lighted the sale earlier this week, along with the Government of Portugal, where departing owner Roman Abramovich also has a passport.

The CST were delighted to see confirmation of the agreement, having held talks with Boehly’s camp over recent weeks.

However, no one is under any illusions as to the need for the new owners to hit the ground running this summer as they attempt to close the widening gap to champions Manchester City and Liverpool.

“The Chelsea Supporters’ Trust would like to congratulate the consortium ledd by Todd Boehly on the takeover of Chelsea FC,” the CST said in a statement.

“We wish you every success as the custodian of our club and look forward to a long, constructive and mutually beneficial relationship between you and Chelsea supporters.

“The CST has been very encouraged by the interactions we have had with Mr Boehly and his team over recent months, but the hard work starts now.

“It is now time to deliver both on and off the pitch in building a successful, inclusive and forward-thinking club with supporters at the forefront.”
