New Chelsea supremo Todd Boehly has been slammed for his haphazard dealings in the summer transfer window, as former Manchester United star Gary Neville likened his approach to someone playing a computer game.

Boehly took charge at the Premier League giants in May after former owner Roman Abramovich floated the club on the open market in advance of being hit with sanctions by the UK government due to his alleged links to the Kremlin in the wake of Russia's military operation in Ukraine.

American Boehly - who is also part owner of baseball team the Los Angeles Dodgers - fronted the successful consortium which beat several other interested bidders to complete the deal in what was one of the most unconventional purchases in modern sports history.

Boehly has assumed control of several different aspects of the club following the takeover, including the role previously occupied by Abramovich's right-hand woman and main transfer negotiator Marina Granovskaia. 

And while Chelsea have completed deals for England forward Raheem Sterling and Senegal skipper Kalidou Koulibaly, he has missed out on several other high-profile targets - prompting player-turned-pundit Neville to savage Boehly in a recent public debate for what he sees as a lack of a considered strategy in the market.
