Big plans.

The appearance of the Clearlake Capital consortium at Chelsea has returned the club to the cycle of endless transfer rumors – now the Londoners can sign new players: the transfer budget has already been formed, the main goals for the summer have been determined.

Before entering the market, Chelsea changed priorities: The Telegraph writes that Thomas Tuchel was promised full control over transfers, the head coach is now the club’s most important asset. The Londoners’ new owner Todd Boely has already told Tuchel that his influence extends to both rookie and exit decisions. At Premier League level, only Pep Guardiola at Man City and Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool have the same power.

The publication clarifies: Tuchel is still intensively cooperating with Chelsea director Marina Granovskaya and club adviser Petr Cech, but now the German’s position on transfers is a priority. A lot of discussions are expected: according to The Athletic, the new owners have big ambitions, so as much as 200 million euros have been prepared for summer transfers. 

Who will leave Chelsea?

  • Antonio Rüdiger has already left this summer as the London defense leader joined Real Madrid as a free agent. The German has been playing for Chelsea since July 2017, but he showed himself especially brightly with the arrival of Thomas Tuchel. In the 2021/22 season, he played 54 matches, in which he even scored 5 4 goals passes.
  • Another loss in defense is Andreas Christensen , who almost moved to Barcelona. Tuchel has already confirmed this: the Dane is also leaving as a free agent, the Catalans have to deal with finances and enter him into the salary fund.
  • Saul Niguez ‘s loan has ended – he never adapted to the Premier League and returned to Atlético Madrid.

Further – only rumors.

  • Romelu Lukaku , who spent as much as €115m last summer, wants to return to Inter. According to journalist Gianluca Di Marzio, we are talking about a lease, the terms of which are still being discussed.
  • Cesar Azpilicueta and Marcos Alonso have another year each on their Chelsea contracts. The reliable Fabrizio Romano wrote that both wanted to play at Barça. Negotiations with the Londoners are moving forward – most likely, both will start the 2022/23 season already in La Liga.
  • Reuben Loftus-Cheek is also likely to leave . According to the Italian La Gazzetta dello Sport, the midfielder was offered to Inter: the Londoners plan to receive 20 million euros for him – Inter considers the amount too high, but is considering a loan option.

What about newbies?

There is no official news here yet, but there are a lot of rumors, as always. We selected the most likely transitions from authoritative sources. 

  • The Telegraph writes that the top options in attack are  Raheem Sterling (Man City) and Christopher Nkunku (RB Leipzig). For Usman Dembele , who was talked about earlier, interest is gradually subsiding – but the word of Thomas Tuchel (he worked successfully with Usman at Borussia) can change everything.
  • Defensiveness remains a priority for reinforcements, with Chelsea hoping to bring in at least Jules Kunde . True, Sevilla asks for almost 70 million euros for him – only 23 years old, top form and a contract until 2024 allow him to inflate the price. But the new owners of Chelsea are ready for serious expenses.
  • Todd Boely is also ready to finance the purchase of Matthijs de Ligt from Juventus – the transfer of the Dutchman is directly dependent on Thomas Tuchel. Londoners are also interested in RB Leipzig defender Joshko Guardiol.
  • It is also likely that Chelsea will return for Declan Rice . Tuchel is delighted with the Englishman, whom West Ham value as much as £150m.
