Todd Boehly named as preferred Chelsea bidder, James ‘open’ to Real Madrid move – Everton loss reaction

CHELSEA could not fend off a fired-up Everton as Frank Lampard got revenge over his former club in a 1-0 win.

The Blues were cut down by a Richarlison winner, but were blunt in attack at Goodison Park.

In the latest takeover news, billionaire Todd Boehly has been named as the preferred bidder for Chelsea despite a last-gasp £4billion bid from Sir Jim Ratcliffe.

Meanwhile Reece James is reportedly ‘open’ to the idea of making a summer switch to Real Madrid.
