Chelsea’s new owner, Todd Boehly receives a report from Thomas Tuchel, revealing why the fund should be approved to get new players signed into the Blues’ squad this summer as the transfer window will soon be opened.
Meanwhile, during the cause of given details on how the club should fund, Chelsea’s new owner, Todd Boehly, has agreed to extend the contract of Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel hopes to be backed in the summer window by the club’s new owner.
A lot is expected to get a new defender in the club. Although, Thomas Tuchel has told Todd Boehly that the club needs to strengthen in defence this summer.
Boehly, an American billionaire with a net worth of around £3.65 billion, is leading a consortium that has had an offer accepted to take over from Roman Abramovich.
The takeover is set to be ratified by the end of May and the Daily Mail writes that funds will be made available in the summer transfer market.
The report states that Tuchel and other key figures at the club will advise Boehly that Chelsea needs to bolster their options at the back. The Blues have a decent defensive record this term: only Manchester City and Liverpool have conceded fewer than their 31 goals.
However, Antonio Rudiger is on his way out of west London when his contract expires on June 30. The Germany international is set to join Real Madrid on a free transfer, while Andreas Christensen is poised to sign for Barcelona.
Cesar Azpilicueta and Marcos Alonso face uncertain futures, with at least one of the Spaniards expected to seek pastures new. Chelsea will therefore be short of personnel at the back, while Thiago Silva’s advancing years – the Brazil international turns 38 in September – meaning he will not be able to play two games a week next season.
Chelsea could renew their interest in Sevilla stopper Jules Kounde, who was also a target for Manchester United last summer. The Frenchman now has just two years remaining on his contract at the Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan.
Sevilla may therefore be open to offers for Kounde this summer as they seek to maximize his value. Elsewhere, Chelsea will look to tie Reece James and Mason Mount down to new deals soon after Boehly’s takeover goes through.
