Thomas Tuchel hopes that the sale of “Chelsea” will be completed soon after the head of “Blues” was informed that the consortium of Todd Boli was selected as the preferred participant.

Russian Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich put the Premier League club on the market in March, a few days before it was sanctioned by the British government after the invasion of Ukraine.

After a lengthy bidding process involving several groups, Los Angeles co-owner Dodgers Boi and his fellow investors chose Raine Group, a New York bank that oversees Chelsea’s sale.

It is expected that Boi’s application will be submitted to the Premier League to pass the tests of owners and directors, and the government is obliged to issue a final sale by issuing a new license.

This week, Abramovich denied reports that he was asking to repay a loan of 1.5 billion pounds ($ 1.9 billion) to repay the sale.

But with Chelsea now under a special license that imposes a number of restrictions, including a ban on signing new players and extending contracts, there have been concerns about the club’s future if the sale is not completed by the end of May.

However, Tuchel is confident that the deal will be completed in time for Chelsea to plan for next season.

“I was told last week that we have a predominant contender and things are moving forward,” Tuchel told reporters on Friday.

“It’s a pretty important week for the club, but I was totally focused on the field. But after what I heard last week, I’m sure.

“Cleaning is always better, because when the situation is clear, you can act, judge, take action.

“Otherwise you’re in a passive role and that’s what we are now.”

After initially embarking on a long streak of victories following Abramovich’s decision to sell the club, Chelsea have struggled to find their best form lately.

They suffered a painful defeat in the quarter-finals of the Champions League from Real Madrid after nearly getting an epic comeback after a deficit in the first 3-1 match.

Chelsea’s place in the top four in the Premier League is also far from guaranteed.

The Blues are in third place, five points behind Tottenham, who are in fifth place, and four games remain in the race to reach the Champions League next season.

Tuchel admitted that speculation about Chelsea’s future was difficult for his players to completely block.

“We tried to do it as little as possible, but of course it always exists,” he said before Saturday’s home game against the Wolves.

“We prefer it to be in a clear and thoughtful situation.

“That’s what we hope for, we know what we’re dealing with, such circumstances in improving the team, and that we can act rather than react, or, worse, do nothing.”
