Thomas Tuchel in the race for a place in the Champions League

New Chelsea owner Todd Boehly has made a decision on the club’s management structure following his takeover.

It is understood that the Premier League will carry out the ownership and directorship tests on Boehly’s consortium after Chelsea confirmed the Eldridge Industries chief executive’s deal to buy the club late last week. And it appears he will keep Bruce Buck as the club’s chairman once the sale is complete.

The potential Chelsea owner was present at Stamford Bridge on Saturday as the Blues slipped to a 2-2 Premier League draw against Wolves, but there are eight other key figures in the group of new owners. And Thomas Tuchel has been warned he may need to be cautious about Romelu Lukaku’s future situation at Stamford Bridge.

Tuchel warned

Thomas Tuchel may need to carefully handle the situation surrounding Romelu Lukaku’s future at the club.

The Belgium international has been linked with moving away from Stamford Bridge this summer after a difficult first season at the club. Lukaku gave a controversial interview to Sky Sport Italia in December, in which he admitted he was “not happy with the situation at Chelsea” and was linked with a return to Inter Milan this summer.

But after a double against Wolves at the weekend, Lukaku has become Chelsea’s top scorer – and has shown just how popular he is in the Chelsea dressing room.

consortium numbers

Behind the consortium, which hopes to complete the Chelsea purchase in the coming days, are nine key figures, including American billionaire Todd Boehly.

The LA Dodgers part-owner has spearheaded the group, who are said to be ready to complete the £4.25billion purchase by May 31, when the Blues’ temporary government license expires. Other names include Hansjorg Wyss, the richest man in Switzerland; Jonathan Goldstein, a London-based property developer; and former British Chancellor George Osborne.

Mirror Football took a look at all the big names behind the consortium and their involvement in the deal to buy Chelsea.

Boehly calls management

Todd Boehly is reportedly looking to keep Bruce Buck at Chelsea as the club’s chairman should his takeover go through successfully.

Buck has been chairman of Stamford Bridge Club since Roman Abramovich bought the club in 2004. Abramovich put the club up for sale after the Russian invasion of Ukraine before it was sanctioned by the British government, meaning the Blues had to operate under a special licence.

But while changes could well be made at the top, Buck will remain at the club alongside director and chief negotiator Marina Granovskaia, who is also reportedly set to remain at Stamford Bridge.
