Todd Boehly purchase of Chelsea set to be completed this week

Abramovich ready to agree loan be placed in frozen accountProspective new owners attended match against WatfordThe sale of Chelsea looks increasingly likely to be completed this week with the government optimistic that Roman Abramovich’s £1.6bn loan to the club will not go to the Russian or his family.There had been fears that a takeover by Todd Boehly’s consortium would fall through because of delays caused by the debt owed by Chelsea’s parent company, Fordstam Ltd, to Camberley International Investments, a Jersey-based company with suspected links to Abramovich. Whitehall insiders last week voiced concerns over the club going out of business if the deadline for a deal to be completed was not met.
