'It's absolutely preposterous': Pundit claims Todd Boehly has done something 'ludicrous' at Chelsea now

TalkSPORT pundit Danny Murphy has claimed that Todd Boehly’s signings are creating a headache for Chelsea manager Graham Potter.

The Blues have been busy in January after spending lavishly before the season started with the new owners in charge.

They have added Mykhailo Mudryk and Joao Felix to their ranks to strengthen the attack, which is the latest to be hit by the injury plague at Stamford Bridge.

There have also been additions of Benoit Badiashile, David Datro Fofana and Andrey Santos as they look to build towards the future.

It is the first transfer window that Potter has been in charge of the club, after walking in following a frantic spree during the summer.

Murphy has claimed that things are yet to change in Boehly’s second window in charge, while his extreme spending is a worrying sign for the manager.

Boehly giving Potter a headache

He said: “It’s absolutely preposterous, it’s ludicrous, it’s illogical and it’s not helpful in the short-term or the long-term as Graham Potter just said.

“I think he’s sitting at home on an evening thinking ‘what the hell is going on?’ There’s no way he’s sanctioned all these. He brought in some of his own recruitment people.

“The problem you’ve got from a footballing perspective, if he’s got all the money in the world fine, although there’s Financial Fair Play and all those things you have to deal with but forget that.

“Football perspective for me is that the manager has got a huge problem trying to keep big players happy. That is one of the hardest things at a big football club, is keeping everybody on board because what happens is you get little cliques, and they’re cancerous.”

Reports have claimed that the Blues are not done this month, and are linked heavily to the signing of Moises Caicedo this month from Brighton.
