Tuchel welcomes potential meetings with Todd Boehly to talk about summer transfer plans

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel said he is open to meeting prospective Chelsea owner Todd Boehly to discuss plans ahead of the summer transfer window.

Ahead of Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen’s expected summer exits, the Blues are expected to be very active in the upcoming transfer window.

For Boehly and the other investors in the consortium, it will be a perfect opportunity to start their era at the club on a high note through investment in players.

Tuchel himself previously insisted that next season will be a rebuilding period for Chelsea, and he does not hide that he will need the support of the new owners this time.

“Yes, but I don’t know. We will be very open and honest,” the Germain said when asked whether he would like to talk to Boehly about potential summer transfers (via Football London).

“He will get my point of view if he wants to have it. Of course, we lose key players, and we struggle lately to win our home games. He was at the final in Wembley too.

“So, maybe when the deal is done, and he is our owner, he is the lucky charm that we need. We give him some more credit.”

Until the sale process officially reaches a conclusion, it is difficult for Chelsea to make their moves.

The restriction on new contracts and signings under the special licence they are operating under aside, there will likely be a significant change in Chelsea’s structural organisation which could alter their transfer policy.

Marina Granovskia, in particular, is an influential figure when making these transfer decisions, and it remains unclear whether she will stay at the club.
