Chelsea have been revealed to have joined Bayern Munich in the race to sign Dembele this summer, with both sides ‘pushing’ for a deal with the Barcelona star.
Boehly’s consortium are set to complete the Chelsea takeover in the coming days, with reports the American is keen to reopen club talks with the player in hopes of signing him on a free transfer.
Finkelstein joined the Boehly consortium early in the process and will become club manager once the sale is confirmed.
