Mercato – Chelsea smashed for its American transfer window

Successor to Roman Abramovich at Chelsea, American businessman Todd Boehly has a thousand ideas a second.

The Chelsea transfer window is not a long calm river. For the time being, the Blues have only recruited Koulibaly and Sterling, two first-choice recruits but who are not enough to meet the expectations of the demanding Thomas Tuchel. And for good reason, the German coach has been asking for more than two weeks for the arrival of a second central defender. But the Blues suffered refusals from Kimpembe or Koundé. Todd Boehly is about to solve the problem with an offer above 75 ME for Wesley Fofana. At the same time, the Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Marc Cucurella tracks are active. A transfer window that goes in all directions and which suggests a certain panic in the ranks of Chelsea this summer. What did not escape Gary Neville, former Manchester United defender and now famous consultant in England.

New boss Todd Boehly slammed

“Todd Boehly, looks like he wants to play Football Manager. He wanders around a bit and at the club they now seem a bit panicked” launched Gary Neville in The Overlap podcast, before continuing. “We wonder if he comes for Frenkie de Jong because he feels like he has to do something. He wouldn’t have had this pressure if he had kept the people who were there and let them manage for a year or two. Let’s be clear, first they react to what is available and what other clubs are doing. Secondly, we hear the name of Todd Boehly too much, it takes up too much space. Look what they are doing at Manchester City, Txiki Begiristain is the sporting director” concluded Gary Neville, for whom the American owner of Chelsea is not on the right path, even if on paper, the Chelsea transfer window looks good. Especially if Wesley Fofana is added to the already recorded reinforcements of Kalidou Koulibaly and Raheem Sterling.
