Good morning Chelsea fans
Ken Griffin has vowed that if his consortium takes over, Chelsea will remain an elite, trophy-hunting club.
And PSG are a surprise candidate for the Blues’ disgraced forward Romelu Lukaku.
It all overshadows the 6-0 Prem win in Southampton on Saturday.
But manager Thomas Tuchel found a new perspective with his mixed assessment that Timo Werner had ended his six-month goal drought.
Striker Werner and playmaker Mason Mount each scored twice to keep Chelsea five points clear of fourth-placed Tottenham.
Tuchel said: “He could have scored more goals. He had great chances and many chances.
“It was his favorite position against an opponent who we knew we could find spaces behind.
“It was for him to make a statement, what he did… we are pleased with his strong performance.”
Meanwhile, American hedge fund tycoon Griffin – who is worth £21 billion, three times Roman Abramovich’s value – has joined forces with Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert and the Ricketts family.
Deal brokers The Raine Group have extended the deadline for second bids to Thursday and expect the final price to top £3bn.
Griffin said, “We all love to compete and we love to win even more.
“Our group will work closely together to put the most competitive team on the pitch every year.”
PSG are said to be in talks over the £98million recruitment of Lukaku, who has been largely sidelined by Kai Havertz’s hot form.
Finally, the Blues are advised to leave for 18-year-old Arsenal forward Khayon Edwards.
