Chelsea‘s new owners are more likely to sell players like Armando Broja than keep them, says journalist Paul Brown.

The west London club are set to be taken over following Roman Abramovich’s decision to sell up, and Brown believes that development is likely to have ramifications on the futures of those out on loan.

What is the latest news involving Chelsea?

According to Goal, a Saudi private consortium led by Saudi Media is one of the latest parties to register an interest in buying Chelsea.

Elsewhere, The Telegraph has reported that another consortium, which is being spearheaded by Swiss billionaire Hansjorg Wyss and LA Dodgers part-owner Todd Boehly, has launched its bid for the European champions.

In total, as per Sky Sports, there are thought to be up to 10 parties who are all keen on acquiring Chelsea, with Chicago Cubs chairman Thomas Ricketts and Turkish businessman Muhsin Bayrak two other names who have been mentioned.

What has Brown said about Broja and Chelsea?

Brown thinks Broja, who is currently out on loan at Southampton, and other players in a similar position to the 20-year-old, are more likely to be sold than kept under the new Chelsea regime.

The Daily Star journalist told GIVEMESPORT“Because of the Abramovich situation at Chelsea, it’s very difficult to predict now what they’ll do in the transfer market.

“If they have a new owner by then, will he think that it is worth cashing in on people like Broja? I would say a new owner at Chelsea is more likely to sell those kind of players than to keep them on.”

Is Chelsea’s transfer policy about to change?

Possibly. The Athletic recently reported that there is a suspicion that Chelsea will have to cash in on some players they were not originally planning to sell this summer as they look to become more self-sustaining.

Broja signed a new five-year deal before the start of this season and is one of the club’s hottest talents right now, so you would suspect that he is one individual who was not earmarked to be sold but could now be, with The Sun claiming that the Blues value him at a whopping £70m.

Conor Gallagher is also probably in the same boat. He is enjoying an excellent campaign at Crystal Palace, scoring an impressive eight goals from midfield, and is one Chelsea player out on loan who Thomas Tuchel seemingly wants to integrate into his squad next season.

Until the club is sold, there will be a lot up in the air. But with Chelsea’s new owners unlikely to have Abramovich’s level of wealth, the Premier League outfit may very well find themselves in a position where they have to sell players they had initially planned to keep in order to bring in new signings.
