Chelsea’s new owners will offer Thomas Tuchel a lot of support this summer, with Todd Boehly willing to give him a £200 million transfer budget.
The Blues’ new owners are eager to get their new era off to a good start, and Tuchel has already been promised that he will have greater input in the club’s transfer strategy.
Chelsea managers were once viewed as first-team coaches who recruited players for the club rather than the guy in command.
However, in an attempt to emulate Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola’s success with Liverpool and Manchester City, Boehly wants to hand over control of Chelsea’s transfer strategy to Tuchel, ensuring that he obtains the players he requires.
This plan will necessitate significant expenditure, and Boehly will provide Tuchel with about £200 million this summer.
The sale of Romelu Lukaku, who wants to return to Inter Milan after less than a year at Stamford Bridge, might help boost that budget.
Lukaku, who was signed by the club but was never a natural match for Tuchel’s style of play, is a symbol of the transfer philosophy that Boehly wants to abandon.
Tuchel is looking to add a fresh, mobile attacker, as well as a central midfielder and at least one center-back to his squad.
