Thomas Tuchel feels strange with Chelsea situation in summer transfer market

Chelsea recently got a new owner named Todd Boehly, witnessing him succeed Roman Abramovich.

Chelsea’s transfer window ambitions were hampered after the UK Government imposed penalties on the Russian oligarch Roman Abramovich amid his nation’s war with Ukraine.  Upon the seizure of previous owner Roman Abramovich’s holdings in the wake of his nation’s incursion of Ukraine, the Team was purchased by a group headed by Todd Boehly for £4.25 billion ($5.24 billion). 

Thomas Tuchel believes Chelsea’s inability to engage in any negotiations seems a tad weird and they seem like observers and that they are at an inactive stance which they don’t appreciate. “We feel like spectators and this is a passive role we don’t like. It feels a bit strange. Summer transfer budget? I don’t know how much it will be, as of today”, per NizaarKinsella.


Before Todd Boehly’s debut transfer season as Chelsea owner, Thomas Tuchel has given a note to his team. This occurs as an acquisition is likely to be finished by the conclusion of May, with Boehly’s group accepting to become Chelsea’s new masters. Tuchel has stated his squad before the debut transfer market with new hands. 

Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen are slated to leave for La Liga when their agreements finish at the finish of the campaign. Cesar Azpilicueta has also been widely rumoured about a transfer to Barcelona, with sources suggesting he had a verbal pact with Xavi’s squad until his Chelsea term was renewed. Moreover, before netting a double versus Wolves, Romelu Lukaku’s status was in question, with the Belgian wasting a large period away from the starting eleven underneath Tuchel.

Abramovich has owned the high-profile London football team since 2003, committing massive volumes of capital to the organization and reaping the fruits of 19 major league titles, notably the Champions League in 2021. Todd Boehley is the CEO of Eldridge Holdings, which further holds MRC (a publishing joint project with Deadline’s parent corporation Penske Media Firm) and Dick Clark Productions, the Golden Globes organisers. The Los Angeles Dodgers, Los Angeles Lakers, and Los Angeles Sparks are all owned by him.
