While his takeover of the club seems imminent, Boehly is not yet owner of the Stamford Bridge-based club.

According to the Telegraph, sporting director Marina Granovskaia will be holding more talks with the businessman to discuss if she will stay at the club on either a short or long-term basis for the club's transfers and contracts.

It is, however, expected that Boehly's consortium will assume full charge of the European champions by the deadline of the sanctions imposed on the club on May 31.
