Despite a difficult summer for the Blues, Todd Boehly and Thomas Tuchel have done some good work to bring in Rahem Sterling and Kalidou Kulibaly.
Many Chelsea fans will be disappointed at the inability to move forward with some of the other deals the club has lined up. This includes Barcelona’s win over west London giants Raphinha and possibly Sevilla’s defender Jules Kounde. Romano,
believes Boehly did well in difficult circumstances at Stamford Bridge. However, he admits that the club need a true sporting director, and one is likely to be appointed soon.
Michael Edwards, former Liverpool chief, rejected Chelsea this summer. However Maxwell is being considered by Premier League giants. Romano explains that Blues fans are feeling frustrated after losing to Raphinha by Barcelona. “The past looks like it will repeat with Jules Kounde,” Romano says.
It is certain that Todd Boehly would appoint a new sporting chief in the next few months – Chelsea will require a board that can handle the transfer business. Michael Edwards was approached by Boehly after his departure from Liverpool. However, he took his time as he wanted to take a break. Maxwell is another name that Boehly has on his list, but no decisions have been made yet because Chelsea is busy with new signings.
“I think it is crucial for Chelsea to have an sporting director. Boehly has accomplished many things in a very short time. I believe Rahem Sterling, Kalidou Koulibaly and Rahem Sterling are excellent signings – but a director would be great.”
Chelsea supporters will hope that this is resolved quickly and that it doesn’t hinder the ability to get more important signings through the door before the end.
Chelsea fans will hope this can be sorted as soon as possible and that it doesn’t disrupt from getting some more much-needed signings in through the door before the end of the summer.
