Todd Boehly explains how to provide Thomas Tuchel the ideal £45 million replacement for Marcos Alonso

Thomas Tuchel has been informed of the fee Chelsea must pay to capture Brighton defender Marc Cucurella this summer. Following a string of strong performances for Graham Potter’s side, the 23-year-old has been extensively linked with a transfer away from the Amex Stadium.

According to the MailOnline, Todd Boehly’s group, which has struck a £4.25 billion agreement to acquire the west London club, will ‘push for A-list stars’ to usher in a new era at Stamford Bridge. And, with the new ownership group ready to boost the Blues’ arsenal, The Telegraph reports that Tuchel will have £200 million to strengthen his team when player sales are taken into consideration.

Cucurella has surfaced as a target as part of Chelsea’s potential reconstruction effort, with Marcos Alonso’s future looking bleak. According to Fabrizio Romano, the 31-year-old, who has been linked with a transfer to Barcelona, intends to leave Stamford Bridge this summer.
According to the source, the Spanish international is in advanced negotiations with Xavi’s team about a possible move to Camp Nou, prompting Chelsea’s desire to boost Tuchel’s left-back options. However, according to The Sun, if the Blues want to sign Cucurella, Boehly’s group has been told they would have to pay £45 million.

Cucurella has appeared 35 times in the Premier League for Brighton this season, assisting on two goals. According to reports, his strong performances have piqued the interest of Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur, giving Chelsea an uphill task to get him.
If the transaction goes through, the Spaniard will be the first signing of a new era, as well as the first of Boehly’s ‘A-list signings.’ According to the MailOnline, the LA Dodgers co-owner, who has completed a £4.25 billion agreement to acquire the Blues, would ‘push for A-list stars’ to usher in a new era at Stamford Bridge.

Tuchel wants to rebuild Chelsea this summer, regardless of whether the American billionaire acquires Cucurella’s services. “We are rebuilding, not enhancing the team,” the Blues coach told We are in the process of rebuilding. This is always a challenge for us, but we are up for it.

“I’ve had no idea where we’re at since day one.” What I can guarantee is that I will be here – if I can promise that – with full vigor and positive energy regardless of what happens. We’ll continue to work for Chelsea, and I’m not going to think about the worst-case situation. On whatever level we will compete, we shall see.”

Cucurella would be an ideal substitute for Alonso if the latter were to leave Chelsea. Tuchel’s offense would benefit from the Brighton defender’s intensity, front-foot pressure, and progressiveness.
