Chelsea Transfers

Feels like this same thing has been said a dozen times already. Tuchel promised this, Tuchel promised that, Chelsea will go big to back him, Boehly wants to close the gap to the top 2.

Yet nothing has actually happened yet. Feels like Matt Law tweeted this exact thing like a month ago.

IF Arse pull both Jesus and Raphinha 

and we fail on both Dembele and Sterling

plus we (as he is the last truly viable option left) likely fail on Osimhen (the odds against us for him this summer are really high, it is almost pipe dream territory)

we are potentially in deep shit, barring some semi-miracles (Broja comes good in a huge way, and we somehow grab Gnabry and/or Christopher Nkunku)

 

many, many of the options in most positions are rapidly drying up

us failing on all 6 

Jesus

Raphinha 

Dembele

Sterling

Gnabry

Nkunku

especially if they end up coming to direct rivals

would be nightmarish

If all that happens we’d probably panic and sign Neymar 🤣🤣🤣

his salary alone precludes any of the Neymar talk (unless PSG suck up half of it, and why would they do that?)

Honestly if TT really wants Kounde, seeing all this Barca talk, we would make somekind of a move. Nothing so far...

we were in for Kounde before TT came

not going to toss him under that bus

It's crazy to think that in this day and age, it doesn't take much to reach that £200m.

Someone have a Telegraph sub so we can read that paywalled article? I’m sure it’s just rehashing the same targets but still…

Open it, reload the page but stop the reload before it goes through and you'll pass through the paywall.

It's a rehash though to save your time.

Thomas Tuchel has been promised as many as six summer signings by Chelsea’s new owners who have set Champions League qualification as a minimum target for their first season in charge in which they aim to close the gap on Manchester City and Liverpool.

Head coach Tuchel has held transfer summits with co-owner Todd Boehly and key staff this week to finalise Chelsea’s transfer plans after agreeing a deal to loan Romelu Lukaku back to Inter Milan.

A big-money move for Juventus defender Matthijs de Ligt has been boosted by reports from Italy claiming the Dutchman will not sign a new contract and is ready to move to the Premier League.

Chelsea need to sign at least two new central defenders, with Sevilla’s Jules Kounde also high on their list, and could additionally move for greater cover at wing-back in the form of Jonathan Clauss.

With top-class strikers at a premium, Chelsea may not sign a like-for-like replacement for Lukaku but have identified attackers such as Raheem Sterling, Ousmane Dembele, Richarlison and Arsenal target Gabriel Jesus who could add goals and assists.

Tuchel has in the region of £200million to spend, although that figure could be further boosted by sales and a senior source told Telegraph Sport: “The key is to basically work with Tuchel to come up with the best players that are available. We really want to make sure we have a good defence. We've got depth in midfield. We're not desperate for an out-and-out striker.

“Fortunately, there's reasonable opportunities in the market right now in order to satisfy the fans' desire to be competitive. I think it's a combination of moves and there's five or six that we're going to look to make.”

Despite offering Tuchel, who the Boehly-Clearlake consortium believe is “super talented”, greater power, Chelsea’s new owners have made their ambition clear to the German.

“I think table stakes is Champions League qualification and then everything beyond that,” said the source.

“Obviously from the English fans point of view, winning the Premier League is extremely important, and then from a global perspective, winning the Champions League is extremely important. Being in a position year in and year out to be competitive.”

With Marina Granovskaia following Bruce Buck out of the exit, Boehly is, for now, filling both the chairman and sporting director roles. As well as working on transfers, he has this week made the first move to instigate talks over a new contract with England international Reece James.

Boehly’s decision to name himself part-time sporting director has surprised some of Chelsea’s rivals who have questioned whether or not he is qualified to take on the task.

But insiders insisted this is an “interim situation” and that the club will get a new full-time sporting director, with a check set to be made on whether or not Liverpool’s outgoing Michael Edwards could be tempted to Stamford Bridge.

Doubts remain over the futures of captain Cesar Azpilicueta, who Tuchel wants to keep, Marcos Alonso, Timo Werner, Hakim Ziyech, Christian Pulisic and Kepa Arrizabalaga, but Chelsea’s head coach has discussed the need for a large squad because of the change in rules that will allow five substitutions.

“Obviously with five substitutions coming, there's more and more opportunities for players to get minutes, which makes depth even more important,” added the source.

yes, even my 'on the cheap' comprehensive buy list is likely (although gross, NOT net) over £200m 😿

De Ligt has apprantly told Juve he wants to leave. Will still be difficult as he has two years left, however he is a player we should take a serious look at. 

I think we have a few players Juve would be interested in, Jorgi and Ziyech. Could potentially package a deal, even if they're done separately (as straight swaps/money+player are rare.) 

I think some players from our club will jump easily to juve. We have been talking about Ziyech to Leeds, but he would fancy a move to Juve. As well Jorgi, but only problem is we don't have a replacement for him. That being said we should take advantage as many players would not mind a swap deal to Juve.
