Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia is now reportedly in charge of transfer negotiations at the club.
The Daily Mail says Granovskaia now drives the negotiations for all deals at Chelsea after a management restructure.
The club made a decent profit in the last window by selling Andre Schurrle and Ryan Bertrand for top dollar and getting a loan fee for Mohamed Salah. This follows persuading Paris Saint-Germain to pay nearly £50million for David Luiz last summer.
