toAlthough it is not surprising, Chelsea’s many revolutions draw attention. With the departure of the close Azpilicueta (Atletico Madrid) and Pulisic (Milan or Lyon), Only three Champions League finalists who won in 2021 will remain in Porto: Thiago Silva, Ben Chilwell and Rhys James. The arrival of Todd Boyley was an ‘earthquake’ at Stamford Bridge. In the millions came the signatures, the sales…and the “blue” breakup.
And although the transfer market officially started on July 1, Chelsea has been working on the arrival and departure process for a long time. They have already spent almost 100 “kilograms” between Nkunko and Nico Jackson…but they have entered more than 220 million With the departure of Havertz, Kovacic and Mount to United, or the mass migration of players to the Saudi League.
With only 44 points in the Premier League (12) and no titles won, Todd Bohle’s first year in London couldn’t be worse. The American bought the club from Abramovich more than a year ago, He spent 600 million in the 2022/23 market (the most expensive market in history)…and got drowned. You now have two months to “fix” last year’s bad planning.
Pochettino commands the ship
Mauricio Pochettino is already working at Cobham to get Chelsea back into European competitions in 2023/24. He will have a year with a more ‘light’ calendar (only premiers and cups) but with higher demand to get Chelsea back into the position that corresponds with him. For history in the 21st century…and for market spending. Nobody invests more than them.
Mauricio’s experience, standards of excellence, leadership qualities and personality will serve Chelsea well as we move forward. He is a winning coach, who has worked at the highest level, in multiple tournaments and languages. His spirit, tactical approach and commitment to development made him an exceptional candidate.” This is how Chelsea introduced Pochettino, explaining the reasons for signing the Argentine.
Mauricio’s experience, standards of excellence, leadership and personal qualities will serve Chelsea well as we move forward.
Repeating what was achieved in the past in clubs like Tottenham, when he made a whole team grow up to reach the Champions League final. That’s the point. “I think squad size is something the club will address. I’m sure the new coach will understand what I’m saying.”I already warned you Frank Lampard before leaving the club. And it was. Departures are already taking place.
I think the size of the squad is something the club will touch on
Departure confirmed…and pending
Chelsea Marking half of the squad as ‘for sale’ in order to comply with UEFA’s Financial Fair Play standards. They won’t get money into the Champions League and that’s a hole of at least 60 million that the exits have to cover. At the moment, he entered 156 kilograms with the marches of Havertz (Arsenal), Kovacic (City), Koulibaly (Al-Hilal), Mendy (Al-Ahly), Loftus-Cheek (Milan), Kant (Al-Ittihad) or Bakayoko (free).
Already in January, with room for new deals, Jorginho left for Arsenal. And before that, in the summer of 2022, Werner, Emerson Palmieri, Gilmour, Batshuayi, Ridiger or Marcos Alonso have left.
In addition, On the road are Mount Sales (to Manchester United for 70 kilos), Policy (about 25 million euros) or Azpilicueta (He will be released on his way to the bishop.) In addition to the “Ziyash case”: problems with the medical examination paralyzed his departure to Saudi Arabia.
Then of course There is a mystery of the loanees returning to London, with Lukaku as the most famous case. The €114m Belgian has returned from Milan…but he doesn’t want to stay. His idea is to return to Inter but Chelsea want to “monetize” his departure by at least €35-40m.
Together with Malang Sarr, Ethan Ampadu or Hudson-Odoi They returned to Stamford Bridge not expecting to stay long. More departures from a team for sale in the early days of summer 2023.
