Todd Boehly was in awe of Borussia Dortmund's infamous yellow wall but he was jokingly told it's not for sale by fans.
Chelsea were lining up to face Dortmund at the Signal Iduna Park Stadium in their Champions League second-round clash on Wednesday night. And as the two sides geared up for the spectacle, the Bundesliga side's rapturous fans made their presence felt in the formidable south stand that's known to strike fear in the hearts of opponents.
And as the sea of yellow shirts, scarves, and Dortmund flags comprised of almost 25,000 fans passionately sang 'You'll Never Walk Alone', an enthralled Boehly made sure he captured the spine-tingling moment on his phone.

However, the American's reaction prompted supporters to remind him that the wall isn't something he can acquire with his billions, in reference to the Chelsea owner's recent spending blitz in January's transfer window.
One fan remarked under the clip shared by CBS: "No Todd Boehly, you can’t buy those supporters." Then another quipped: "The latest rumors announce that he plans to buy the Yellow Wall next July."

A third user got in on the jibes and scoffed: "It’s not for sale," with a crying face emoji. And a fourth supporter goaded Boehly by adding: "Breaking News: Todd Boehly put 100m bid to buy Yellow Wall of Dortmund."
Boehly spent over £300m on a swath of new talent last month but they were unable to stop Chelsea from slumping to a 1-0 defeat to Dortmund on Wednesday night in the first leg clash. A goal from Karim Adeyemi just after the hour mark was the difference between the two sides, giving Dortmund the advantage ahead of the second leg on March 7.
But although Boehly can't buy the yellow wall, he's hoping to have better luck with acquiring Paris Sain t-Germain star Neymar in his bid to turn Stamford Bridge into a Dortmund-esque fortress. Reports claim the American met with PSG chief Nasser Al-Khelaifi in Paris on Tuesday to negotiate a fee for the Brazilian forward.
