Chelsea owner Abramovich to hand Tuchel bumper summer transfer budget

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich plans to hand manager Thomas Tuchel a bumper summer budget.

The Sun says Abramovich is set to hand Chelsea manager Tuchel a whopping £150million to spend on improving his squad this summer.

Tuchel has had an immediate impact since replacing Frank Lampard at Stamford Bridge in January, taking the Blues into the top four as well as the Champions League and FA Cup finals.

Chelsea spent £253m on new talent last summer under Lampard, bringing in the likes of Kai Havertz, Timo Werner, Ben Chilwell, Edouard Mendy and Hakim Ziyech.

Tuchel is going to be backed to the tune of £150m this summer as he tries to hunt down Manchester City in the Premier League.

Chelsea's board are 'delighted' with Tuchel's work since arriving in west London and the German will now be given funds to improve particular areas of his squad.
