Many supporters have been curious about Todd Boehly’s early days with the Blues since his formal entrance as a new Chelsea co-owner on May 30. We have been fortunate today.
A fantastic insider account of Boehly’s first few weeks at Chelsea was penned by Simon Johnson of The Athletic.
Johnson emphasizes Boehly’s requests to employ “aggressively” in the field of data analytics and is eager to hire six to eight individuals there.
Boehly anticipated that he would be thrust into the thick of things during the next transfer window. His first piece of transfer activity occurred on June 21 when he played a crucial role in the negotiations to finalize the sale of Romelu Lukaku back to Inter.
According to reports, Boehly went into the Lukaku transaction with a “baseball mindset,” meaning he was open to a swap agreement.
He said that if Inter wanted Lukaku, they should transfer either Denzel Dumfries, Milan Skriniar, or Alessandro Bastoni.
The connection between Boehly and Tuchel is claimed to be “tight” and seems poised to make an impact, where he has been calling the staff from other clubs for transfer targets, despite the American not being able to pull off an Inter player in return.
Boehly isn’t fooling about; he’s here to win, as this story truly emphasizes what Chelsea supporters sense from the outside.
The 48-year-old wants to establish a new vision to rival Manchester City and Liverpool, and we have already witnessed a full reorganization of the hierarchy.
Boehly is a serious person.
