Chelsea Coach, Thomas Tuchel could oversee a massive overhaul of the Chelsea squad this summer, as reports claims that Todd Boehly is prepared to allow Thomas Tuchel to rebuild the Chelsea squad this summer, according to his identity, just like Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp has done with Manchester City and Liverpool respectively.
The Chelsea new owner is yet to discuss transfer business with Thomas Tuchel, as they still await for the deal to takeover the club to be officially confirmed.
According to reports, Thomas Tuchel could be given up to £200 million by the new Chelsea owners, aside from the money they would generate from the sale of players this summer, to rebuild the squad.
Apart from the £200 million war chest that could be given to Thomas Tuchel this summer by the new Chelsea owners, they could still generate a further £210 million from the sale of players, thereby increasing their spending power in the transfer window to £410 million.
In this article, we will be writing on the players Chelsea could sell to generate £210 million this summer.
