Chelsea owner Todd Boehly is advertising the club’s entire first team squad as ‘for sale’ on a Facebook group called ‘Saudi Buy & Sell’.
The American billionaire has already managed to successfully flog three of his unwanted players to Saudi Pro League clubs using the social media platform which is popular with Facebook Karens and scammers.
‘FOR SALE… Chelsea first team squad. Can be sold as a set or individually. One previous Russian Oligarch owner. Will accept a multi-million-pound bid ONO. No time wasters please’, posted Boehly.
After a flurry of bids appeared in the comments section beneath the post, Boehly accepted offers for first team stars Kalidou Koulibaly, Hakim Ziyech and Edouard Mendy.
The 49-year-old chairman arranged to meet a group of Saudi businessmen at a Greggs where he handed over the trio in exchange for cash.
Next, Boehly received a DM from Manchester United CEO Richard Arnold regarding Blues midfielder Mason Mount.
‘Bit skint atm. Would be willing to swap Mount for a Fred?’, wrote Arnold.
‘£50M. Take it or leave it. Ps not even the Saudis are buying Fred’, replied Boehly, along with a few laughing emojis.
Later that day, Arnold posted a picture of Fred into the group along with the caption:
‘FREE if someone can come and collect today’.
At time of press, there were no comments under the post.
Meanwhile, former Aston Villa boss Steven Gerrard has revealed he turned down the opportunity to be sacked mid-season by Saudi Pro League outfit Al-Ettifaq.
‘Although I had a very lucrative offer from a Saudi club, I’ve decided not to go over there and be sacked by Christmas’, Gerrard told Paddy Power News.

‘I still believe I’m a good enough manager to be sacked by an English Championship side’.
‘And if all else fails, I can always go back to Rangers’, added the 43-year-old.
