According to reports, a world-class manager rejects Chelsea, despite Todd Boehly ranking him as the club’s top target. Markus Krösche, Eintracht Frankfurt’s director of football, has ‘no intention’ of joining Chelsea this summer.
The Blues have put Krösche at the top of their list of future leaders, according to BILD. They add that Boehly and co. are looking for a club president with football expertise to carry on their project and were drawn to Krösche, who has previously played for RB Leipzig and Eintracht Frankfurt.
He has a strong transfer record, having signed players such as Christopher Nkunku, Josko Gvardiol, Randal Kolo Muani, and Jesper Lindström.
Chelsea are interested in Krösche, but he ‘has no intention’ of leaving Eintracht and moving to Stamford Bridge.
That is because it is impossible to rule out the possibility that Boehly may “continue to interfere” in sporting matters in the future, as he has done heavily since his arrival at the club last summer.

After leaving Leipzig owing to a disagreement with then-CEO Oliver Mintzlaff, Krösche cherishes his ‘creative freedom’ as a board member in Frankfurt.
He is currently content with his position and the lack of intervention from above, therefore he is uninterested in Chelsea or fixing their current “crisis.”
