At Stamford Bridge, up to six transfers are anticipated to help Tuchel rebuild the team after Andreas Christensen’s contract expired and Antonio Rudiger moved to Real Madrid. Romelu Lukaku’s future, however, appears to have divided Boehly and the previous administration; despite this, the American appears to have secured the Belgian’s return to Inter Milan and will now move on to other endeavors.
Over the past week, Chelsea’s hierarchy has changed, which might have affected their transfer market. Although she is no longer serving as a director, Marina Granovskaia is still accessible for Boehly to use as a resource during the transfer window. Thomas Tuchel had a good working relationship with Boehly and Granovskaia and is now in a position of greater responsibility as he decides which players to transfer. The majority of crucial Chelsea decisions over the past ten years have been made by Granovskaia, although Cech was explicitly recognized for having a hand in the club’s most recent and most successful signing, Edouard Mendy.
Petr Cech was the most recent member of the Chelsea hierarchy to have their departure revealed in a formal statement from the Blues on Monday morning. Despite claims that Todd Boehly encouraged the legendary goalie to stay and help out during the upcoming weeks of the transfer window, the great goalie will have been cleared by the end of the month.
Jules Kounde and Matthijs de Ligt are both highly desirable by the Blues. Additionally, Kounde’s progress has halted since Granovskaia spearheaded discussions for the player last summer, although unsuccessfully. Boehly might nevertheless be pursuing a deal for the Sevilla star.
During Boehly’s meeting with Jorge Mendes, the well-known marketer is rumored to have helped the La Liga team in a number of moves in previous seasons, and Kounde may have been involved in the negotiations to bring the defender to west London.
