The Athletic have revealed that Chelsea’s new co-owner Todd Boehly has organised an informal dinner with his Premier League counterparts later today.
Boehly, who completed his takeover of Chelsea alongside Clearlake Capital in late May, has faced plenty of challenges in his first summer at Stamford Bridge.
After deciding to part ways with Bruce Buck, Marina Granovskaia and Petr Cech, the American businessman is operating as chairman and interim sporting director, and is thus leading negotiations during the transfer window.
The Blues have already lost out on key targets including Raphinha and Matthijs de Ligt this summer, and also look to be on the verge of missing out on Jules Kounde (Fabrizio Romano).
The Athletic have now explained that executives from the 20 top-flight clubs, including Tottenham, will gather in London on Tuesday for their latest shareholders’ meeting.
Boehly’s event is expected to follow the meeting, with executives from all clubs expected to attend.

Not a lot of clubs outside the Premier League have money to spend in the post-covid financial climate, and so Premier League clubs would have to increasingly do business with each other over the coming years.
