Todd Boehly hands Tuchel £200m for summer transfer 

Todd Boehly hands Tuchel £200m for summer transfer war chest with star Raheem Sterling on wish list.

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel is expected to receive £200 million from the club’s new owners this summer, with Manchester City attacker Raheem Sterling on his want list.

The Premier League Board has given Todd Boehly’s group permission to complete their takeover of the west London club, and the transfer is anticipated to close soon, removing the restrictions imposed after Roman Abramovich was sanctioned.

Tuchel has emphasized to the club’s new owners the importance of striking fast and aggressively in the transfer market in order to cut the gap on the leaders, and Boehly is ready to support his manager.

Todd Boehly hands Tuchel £200m

According to The Telegraph, Chelsea will look to spend around £200m this summer.

However, some of the budget will come from player sales.

Defence is Tuchel’s priority but is also keen to improve attacking options with Man City winger Sterling on the wish list.

Sterling only has one year left on his contract at the Etihad and has previously intimated that he could leave the club, having been a peripheral figure in the first half of the season.

For now, though, Tuchel’s main priority is sorting out the defence with the departures of Andreas Christensen and Antonio Rudiger leaving the club incredibly short on options at the back – while Cesar Azpilicueta and Marcos Alonso could both leave too.

Sevilla defender Jules Kounde is Chelsea’s top target for the right center-back role and a deal should be fairly uncomplicated, with the Spanish side needing to sell and a lot of the groundwork done last summer.

On the left side of the back three, Chelsea are looking at RB Leipzig’s Josko Gvardiol.
