Tuchel to be handed £200M summer budget by new Chelsea owners

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel is set to be handed a bumper £200m summer transfer warchest by new owner Todd Boehly.

The Stamford Bridge club's new American ownership wish to make a clear statement of their intention to challenge Manchester City and Liverpool for major honours in the years ahead.

The Daily Telegraph says this will include handing manager Tuchel a transfer war chest of around £200m, factoring in proceeds from anticipated player sales in the summer window.

Boehly spoke to Tuchel and the players following their final day win over Watford and acknowledged the need to act quickly to secure targets.

The top priority will be to solve Chelsea's problems in defence, with Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen leaving the club on free transfers and the future of captain Cesar Azpilicueta still uncertain.

The scope of the transfer kitty could also allow Chelsea to pursue a new midfielder and attacker.
