New Manchester United owners could look to Chelsea to help Erik ten Hag

Manchester United are the latest Premier League club to be placed up for sale with the Glazers decision to seek new investment following the recent takeover of Chelsea and the news of Fenway Sports Group being open to selling up at Liverpool.

Any new United owner or investor may perhaps look at Premier League rivals Chelsea, with lessons to be learned about how to handle a takeover. The Blues were of course forced to do business following the UK government’s restrictions on Russian oligarchs including then-owner Roman Abramovich.

Liverpool, Arsenal, United and Chelsea are currently owned by US businessmen, with Man City and Newcastle the obvious exception given their Gulf-led ownership group. Many names have been thrown into the hat about who could take the reins at Old Trafford, but what can we learn from Todd Boehly and Co?

Boehly acted quickly during his first window at the helm, with a complete restructure seen from the top down at Stamford Bridge. Powerhouse names such as Maria Granovskaia and Petr Cech left the club, with the indication suggesting a reshuffle could also follow suit regarding United’s current decision-makers.
