The sale of the Russian magnate, as forced by the war in Ukraine, could open up vacancies in the management and sporting structure and force the sale of players from the London emblem
Forced to cede Chelsea, one of the Russian tycoons on the European Union’s sanctions list, in the face of Russia’s military invasion of Ukraine, Roman Abramovich’s departure could have negative repercussions on the blue side.
According to ‘The Athletic’, there are, after the official announcement of the sale by the Russian, ‘multiple sources inside and outside the club’ of the Premier League who ‘fear’ that certain elements of the structure “are at the exit door”. “.”.
The portal details that Bruce Buck (president and close to Abramovich), Marina Granovskaia (transfer manager) and Petr Cech (technical consultant) could, like the Russian, say goodbye to Chelsea “in the coming weeks”.
The departures, in particular, of Bruce Buck and Marina Granovskaia could, according to “The Athletic”, jeopardize the renewals of Antonio Rudiger, César Azpilicueta and Andreas Christensen, the latter considered practically closed in Barcelona.
However, the possible vacancies created in the structure of Chelsea will not be the only consequences of this forced sale, after 14 years of “reign”, of Abramovich. The transfer would have put “the financial stability of the English club in question”.
The management of the Premier League emblem therefore points as a way to support the lack of “sponsorship” of the Russian tycoon, and contrary to the pre-planned, to “make money with the transfer of several players” under the orders from Thomas. Tuchel.
During his tenure, Roman Abramovich, who will already have several proposals to sell Chelsea, has invested more than 1.8 billion euros in the English club.
