Thomas Tuchel explains summer transfer plans and says new owners will be key in plans
the Chelsea News
We are still awaiting the official confirmation of the Todd Boehly’s consortium taking over the reigns at Chelsea.
We know it will be their group, and we know it is just a matter of time, but a couple late snags from the UK Government have held things up at this late stage. It is still expected, as it always was, to be done before the end of this month.
Thomas Tuchel needs it, the players need it, the staff needs it, and us fans need it! But with Tuchel, he says that he has his plans for the summer transfer market and to rebuild the squad, but he needs the new owners to come in and green light these plans first.
The Blues boss has admitted, via Football London, that the new owners will have a big say over what business we do this summer, naturally.
Sounds like it’s going to be a busy summer!
“We have an idea, but unfortunately, the guys don’t know that we have an idea, nor do the clubs,” Tuchel said on the summer transfer plans. “We have ideas, but we also need to find out what the ideas of the new owners are. This is also a key point, and from there, we go.
“Normally, at this time of the season, you are contacting players, you are out, you get a feeling, a read, you have discussions, you have dialogue, you have feedback, you know who is committed, you find your targets, you sign your players, and you go from there to the next step. Because we didn’t have this step, this is where we are.
“We had a core in our back three, and we do have an issue with Thiago [Silva]. He is not Benjamin Button. It seems like he is, but he’s not. He is getting older, and it would have maybe been enough to find a natural replacement for this kind of position and keep everybody else.
“Suddenly, we lose two, three, three-and-a-half players at the back and this is actually concerning. It is a huge, huge challenge, given the fact that you cannot act.
“Everybody else is driving from the start, and you are still not finding the right gear to get your kickstart. This is where we are. It is a long race, but we don’t give up. It makes it a bit more complicated, but this is what it is. We try our very best to make up for the disadvantage, but there are some things to solve.”
