Chelsea completed their 2021/22 campaign with a thrilling 2-1 victory against Watford but there is much work still left to do at Chelsea despite this successful conclusion to their campaign. Under new chairman Todd Boehly and co-owner Behdad Eghbali’s leadership, however, this challenge should not prove difficult to meet.
Next step should be finding the ideal manager. Here’s our take on who might replace Graham Potter as manager.
As Chelsea fans look ahead to the start of a new season, tension has grown among supporters. Thomas Tuchel has failed to get his side into shape for this preseason, leaving their defence looking vulnerable ahead of their opening fixture against Everton on August 11.
Benfica are also worried about their attacking options, having agreed terms with Enzo Fernandez but demanding an eight-figure transfer fee to sign him away from Boca Juniors.
Todd Boehly should be more concerned by a potential transfer saga involving Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to Barcelona or Raheem Sterling to Manchester City than by any loss of players like Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang or Raheem Sterling; it could derail everything Tuchel has been trying to build at Stamford Bridge and would be an enormous shame if that happened.
Thiago Silva’s message
Todd Boehly and Behdad Eghbali’s first season at Chelsea is quickly coming to an end, and no clear plan for moving forward has been put forth despite all of the wealth and talent at their disposal. It would be remiss not to capitalize on those assets.
Thiago Silva understands this better than anyone, which is why he took to Instagram this week in order to encourage Blues supporters not to lose faith as their team faces Real Madrid tonight in a crucial Champions League quarterfinal second leg match with two goals deficit awaiting them.
Chelsea may seek to add a new manager this summer as well, with Mauricio Pochettino’s name reported as being considered for consideration. Chelsea have long held a fondness for Pochettino due to his relationship with former Paris Saint-Germain coach Zidane, as well as Everton defender Benjamin Pavard who could possibly replace Richarlison leaving and Matthijs de Ligt leaving for Bayern Munich; therefore adding central defenders appears necessary.

Chelsea co-owner Todd Boehly’s inquiry regarding Neymar’s availability highlights their ambition of building an elite squad capable of challenging for major honours. Signing the Brazilian forward would immediately increase their attacking prowess and raise them among Europe’s premier clubs.
PSG may not allow Neymar to leave, particularly given their poor form and Champions League exit, since they already boast expensive attacking trio Mbappe, Griezmann and Neymar. They will likely want to cut wage costs this summer and Neymar could be part of any exodus this summer.
Raphinha from RB Leipzig is being pursued by various European clubs including Chelsea and Arsenal. The young forward scored 11 times with three assists for Bundesliga side last season; such a move could help bridge any disparity between RB Leipzig and Chelsea given they boast Mason Mount and Kai Havertz already as players on their books.

Chelsea’s new owners aim to improve the Blues’ performance this season. A group consisting of Los Angeles Dodgers co-owner Todd Boehly and Swiss billionaire Hansjorg Wyss as well as investment firm Clearlake Capital have joined forces in order to do just that.
American businessman Boehly, worth approximately $4.5 billion, led the winning consortium that overcame British billionaire Jim Ratcliffe to purchase the club. Under Boehly’s control will need to address financial fair play concerns while making sure their first team squad contains players capable of challenging for a Premier League title.
Since taking control, the new owners have wasted no time getting to work settling staff into new roles and addressing season ticket issues quickly after taking control. Now they plan to become active buyers in the transfer market in an attempt to keep pace with Manchester City and Liverpool; over two years they are expected to spend around 2.5 billion pounds.
