Fuming Tuchel takes Chelsea players to training on day off, Todd Boehly to talk Marina

Hello Chelsea fans

New Chelsea owner Todd Boehly is planning a “heavy investment” in his squad to make them a title Prem force again, according to the Evening Standard.

The US billionaire was confirmed as Roman Abramovich’s successor on Saturday and will launch his summer transfer plans once the buyout deal is approved.

Boehly should be allowed to complete his Chelsea takeover before the end of the season.

He needs the approval of Prem and the government, and with all parties keen to bring the saga to a close, it looks like the deal will be ratified before the Blues host Watford in their final game of the season on the 22nd. may.

But Boehly’s first deal won’t involve bringing RB Leipzig Christopher Nkunku to Stamford Bridge.

That’s because Leipzig CEO Oliver Mintzlaff has no intention of selling the £62million this summer.

Transfer guru Fabrizio Romano tweeted a quote from Mintzlaff which reads: “We have clearly discussed this internally: we won’t let Nkunku leave this summer, we told him and his agent.”

Elsewhere, Chelsea’s Jake Clarke-Salter is wanted by top clubs across Europe, including Leeds and PSV Eindhoven, on a free transfer.

Clarke-Salter is out of contract at Stamford Bridge this summer but Thomas Tuchel’s side have the option to extend his contract for a further 12 months.

And finally, Chelsea have been asked to do a double whammy for Harry Maguire and Declan Rice this summer.

The two English stars will be welcome in the Blues team, insists expert Richard Keys.

Keys explained: “They need a centre-back. Harry Maguire? How much would it cost? £40/50 million? I’m sure he would jump at the chance for a fresh start. Most obvious in midfield would be Rice. Kante almost managed to come to a standstill.

“Rice would be a perfect substitute. Would West Ham sell? Of course they will if the money is good. I would give you 150 million pounds for him all day. If Rice pushes hard, it might not take that long.
