Chelsea fans went through a rough start of their transfer window as they are yet to make new additions to their squad to aid Thomas Tuchel for pre-season.
The club management under the new owner Todd Boehly is ready to back Thomas Tuchel in this summer transfer window. Also, this could be a vital window for the West London club as there will be movement both ways.
But as June is nearing an end, there’s nothing much seen in terms of players’ movement. Although by the end of the month chairman Bruce Buck will step down from his role as a senior advisor. Marina Granovskaia, the lady behind Chelsea’s success in transfer negotiations, will also step down from her role apparently.
Chelsea Situation in transfer window
Todd Boehly and Clearlake Capital took ownership almost 3 weeks ago from the Russian oligarch Roman Abramovich. But the buildup to the change was quite a complex one as UK Government intervened during the process almost at all steps.
With Granovaskaia’s future still under the clouds of doubt, she will still work to complete deals for the Stamford Bridge outfit. One of them will be on the deal for Romelu Lukaku between Chelsea and Inter Milan. Inter CEO Giuseppe Marotta opened up on the complexities of the deal to Radio Rai:
“I can say that today will not be the day of Lukaku’s announcement. Me, Ausilio and Baccin have the duty to build a competitive team while respecting the sustainability of our club. From here polls and negotiations intertwine. We must have the ambition to try all the ways, without being afraid of not reaching the goal. Lukaku track is passable but there are difficulties and we’ll see how it goes.”
On the other hand, Chelsea are also the frontrunner to sign Raheem Sterling from Manchester City. The England international’s future at the blue side of Manchester is quite uncertain it seems. Along with that, Chelsea is also in the race to sign Ousmane Dembele.
