Chelsea’s new owners, a consortium led by Todd Boehly and Clearlake Capital, have yet to make a decision on the future of chairman Bruce Buck and director Marina Granovskaia.
The group recently took over from Roman Abramovich as the new owners of the club, the latter having spent 19 years at the helm.
Their purchase of Chelsea marked the start of a new chapter in the club’s history, and they will take part in their first transfer window in the weeks and months to come.
It will give the Blues a chance to address issues on the pitch as they seek to bring in new players, but the future of a few of those on the board is yet to be finalized.
According to The Telegraph, the club’s new owners have yet to decide whether Buck and Granovskaia will remain as directors beyond the summer.
Boehly and Behdad Eghbali, who is a co-founder of Clearlake Capital, are set to represent Chelsea at the Premier League’s annual meeting this week.
Such a presence of the duo is believed to have raised questions over the future of Buck and Granovskaia and although they were initially supposed to stay at the club as part of the new consortium, their future is now said to be ‘uncertain’.
While Boehly and Clearlake Capital wait to decide on the aforementioned directors, they are expected to back boss Thomas Tuchel in the transfer market this summer.
The German has also been told he will be allowed to take the lead on Blues business this summer, and will have the ‘loudest’ voice when it comes to transfers and other first-team decisions .
Romelu Lukaku could leave the club after just a year back at Stamford Bridge, with the striker feeling like he’s been ‘expelled’.
The striker returned to Chelsea last summer after two years at Inter Milan but could only score 15 goals in 44 appearances in all competitions last season.
There is now speculation he could return to Inter this summer, with the 29-year-old winning the Serie A title with them in the 2020/21 campaign.
