Todd Boyle, the new owner of Chelsea, is gradually settling in his club. He will take over as president himself and will also serve as sporting director for the time being during the Mercato transition. Marina Granovskaya, the woman who handled the negotiations in recent years, is being eliminated.
Chelsea Football Club was recently acquired for approximately €5 billion by an American consortium led by Todd Boehle. The previous owner, Russian Roman Abramovich, was forced to sell the club due to the war in Ukraine.
The new owner, Todd Boyle, has started a major cleanup. One by one, he removes remnants of the Abramovic era from Stamford Bridge. Next comes Marina Granovskaya, Abramovich’s former assistant.

Granovskaia has taken care of the business side of his transfers, and in recent years has earned a reputation as a strict negotiator. The “mysterious Tsarina at Stamford Bridge” has been named the most influential woman in football by The Times.
The Russian-Canadian businesswoman is no stranger to the Red Devils, Eden Hazard, Thibaut Courtois and Romelu Lukaku. Granovskaya has been an important voice in all of their transfers to and from Chelsea.
Granovskaya is not alone in making way for a new order. President Bruce Buck must leave, too. Todd Buhle will take over their duties for the time being. Immediately head to the busy Mercato. A difficult task due to his lack of experience in the world of football.
Romelu Lukaku’s departure to Inter will be completed soon. On the next side, Chelsea are courting Ousmane Dembele (Barcelona) and Raheem Sterling (Manchester City).
