- Todd Boehly, the new owner, gives 200 million euros to the German coach to close both operations
- That without counting that the club can get a good slice for Romelu Lukaku
Chelsea ‘s new owner Todd Boehly wants to start his time at the club like his predecessor Roman Abramovich , which is to say in a big way.
That is why the businessman has put Thomas Tuchel in charge of operations , with full decision-making power in exits and entries, and has also given him 200 million euros to achieve his objectives, according to the Telegraph. A role similar to that played by Pep Guardiola and Jürgen Klopp in Manchester City and Liverpool, acting as managers.
In this sense, Chelsea’s goals have names and surnames: Ousmane Dembélé and Matthijs de Ligt . The one that is closest to being able to arrive is undoubtedly the French winger, with whom the conditions have already begun to be discussed and the negotiations are advanced. He arrives for free, so the transfer bonus will be important, but he will have to leave space to be able to go for the Dutchman.
With De Ligt , first you have to pass the Juventus filter , which is complicated given that Giorgio Chiellini announced his retirement and Leandro Bonucci doesn’t have many years left either.
Of course, in his favor he plays that De Ligt is not comfortable in Turin, where he has not managed to be indisputable or perform at the expected level, so he already dropped the other day that renewing is not something that crosses his mind .
In other words, he could contemplate an exit to the Premier League now that his termination clause of 150 million euros has been activated .
To this money that Chelsea has put in the hands of Thomas Tuchel , it is also necessary to contemplate the one that can begin to sprout in the exit section. There is special interest in that of Lukaku, to which Tuchel does not want to go because of the one who will intercede so that he leaves as soon as possible.
The Belgian wants to return to Inter Milan and he already made it clear 4 months after arriving, when relations were broken. Of course, it seems difficult for them to recover the 113 million they paid last summer to the Italian team.
