Chelsea owner Boehly backed Tuchel over Granovskaia in Lukaku decision

Chelsea owner Todd Boehly backed manager Thomas Tuchel by offloading Romelu Lukaku to Inter Milan.

The Telegraph says Tuchel now has more control of transfers at the club following the exit of managing director Marina Granovskaia.

Boehly has immediately put his trust in Tuchel by sanctioning the decision to offload Lukaku to Inter Milan on loan.

Granovskaia was keen to keep Lukaku for one more season as he had arrived for a club record £97.5million just 12 months earlier.

But her exit has seen the German head coach get his way, with Boehly opting to back him by allowing the £7m loan move to Inter to take place.

The decision to get rid of the striker is the first sign that Tuchel has more power when it comes to signings and departures
