Reportedly, Todd Boyle showed his strength against Thomas Tuchel in the summer and the Chelsea co-owner looked to finish the German.
The American businessman completed his takeover of Chelsea earlier this year and was quick to make a splash.
Perhaps not so much earlier this week when he boldly suggested it There has to be a north-south match made up of Premier League players.
The less talking about it, the better it really is. Far from his grand plans, Buhle threw his weight on the transfer market this summer.
This was necessary after Chelsea lost Antonio Rudiger, Andreas Christensen, Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner. The last two departures are less of a blow, mind.
Tuchel has been backed as around £250m has been spent on new players. Raheem Sterling and Mark Cucurella were bought out for a hefty fee before Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Denis Zakaria were hired on deadline day.
Chelsea’s priority was to add more defenders to their squad and they ended up settling on Kalidou Koulibaly and Wesley Fofana.
More than £100m has been spent on players, with a total potential fee of £75m being spent for Fofana’s prize away from Leicester City.
The Frenchman shone for the Foxes during the 2020/21 campaign in the year of his debut in England. But he missed most of the following season after sustaining a broken fibula.
Fofana is now fully recovered but before he became a Chelsea player, he was sent to the United States to complete his medical treatment.
“Medical expert” Ben Daenery suggested that this was done so Fofana was examined by doctors Bohli “knows and can rely on”:
“It’s not unusual to send your players to medical practitioners you trust implicitly,” Daenerys said. football inside.
“We know Boehly is US-based and has the background and experience with the L.A. Dodgers that are all based in the US.
“I think that would basically be a case of going to people that you know and can count on. I think that’s all there is to it.
“Boehly’s background is entirely sport-oriented, so it’s not surprising to see that they already have these judgments set up.”
It emerged after Tuchel’s exit that the manager butted heads with Tuchel on several topics including transfer goals and Their general view of the club.
SportBild (via Sport Witness) reported that Fofana’s medicine represents the split between Boehly and Tuchel.
They state that Fofana obtaining his medical degree in the United States was a way for Boehle to “show his strength against Tuchel”.
The manager was understandably against this as it meant Fofana had to wait an extra two days before linking up with his new teammates.
The report also notes that Buhli’s anger towards Tuchel comes after the manager praised former Chelsea manager Marina Granovskaya.
Tuchel even stated that he would have liked Granovskaia to continue its role under the new regime.
“Boehle did not like to be contradicted by anyone.” So he was looking forward to pissing off Tuchel with Fofana’s doctor.
