Tuchel will have purchase in summer

London’s Chelsea plans to provide Thomas Tuchel around 250 million euros on transfers this summer already.

Rumors surfaced last week that London-based Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich had agreed to set aside a decent amount for transfers. The Blues goals for summer 2021 include the purchase of Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund. Chelsea also hope to sign Jadon Sancho and return the latter to his homeland after leaving Manchester City.

For Chelsea, this will be the second summer in a row under the banner of big transfer purchases. Under Frank Lampard, the Pensioners signed Timo Werner, Kai Havertz, Ben Chilwell and Hakim Ziyech. However, such a turnover is already creating problems for some of the club's players.

For example, Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham has already reacted to rumors about Haaland's arrival. The 23-year-old is going to play a leading role in the club, which is impossible with the presence of Werner, Giroud and Haaland on the same team. With the arrival of Thomas Tuchel, Tammy appeared on the pitch in only five of eight meetings. But until now, Abraham is in the lead in the Londoners' goalscorers race, having 12 goals in his account.

Chelsea historically spend a lot on transfers. Therefore, the summer purchase is unlikely to come as a surprise. Haaland's arrival is, in my opinion, a great decision for Chelsea, but not entirely suitable for a striker. It is already a tradition that the attackers at Stamford Bridge have a hard time, which went from the transfer of Andriy Shevchenko. Since that time, besides Drogba, only Diego Costa showed good results, and Timo Werner's recent scoring drought is another confirmation of this hypothesis.

At the same time, it seems to us that Holland is already capable of setting himself higher standards. If Real Madrid are aiming at Mbappe, then Holland can now replace Lewandowski at Bayern or the same Mbappe in PSG. In his place, we would not agree on Chelsea, given the demand for him this summer.
