Todd Boehly, Chelsea’s new owner has told Thomas Tuchel that he will be given full autonomy in the club’s transfer business as the Blues move away from their previous model and converge towards that of Manchester City and Liverpool.

The American regards Tuchel as Chelsea’s greatest asset and believes Liverpool and City have shown the benefits of giving the manager full control over transfers.

Previously, Chelsea have viewed the manager as a ‘coach’ and although he has held an advisory position on transfers, players are signed for the club rather than in charge.

Never has this been clearer than the £97million arrival of Romelu Lukaku last summer.

The Belgian does not fit how Tuchel wants to play at Stamford Bridge and is expected to leave permanently or temporarily this summer.

But the According to the Telegraph, such deals could now be a thing of the past as Tuchel, like Klopp and Guardiola, has the last word on transfers.

Tuchel is handed around £200m to spend at his discretion, with the German keen to sign a striker, central midfielder and at least one centre-back.

This departure from the previous Chelsea model is well received by Tuchel, whose future at the club looked precarious after the sanctions against Roman Abramovich.
