Granovskaia set to follow Buck out of Chelsea

Marina Granovskaia is set to become the next big-name exit at Chelsea after the club confirmed Bruce Buck has agreed to stand down as chairman, according to The Telegraph.

Buck will give up his role, which co-owner Todd Boehly is in line to fill, at the end of this month, and Granovskaia is now set to follow. 

Should her departure be confirmed before the transfer window closes, as some sources believe is now likely to be the case, Boehly will not only take on the chairmanship, but also take over transfer negotiations which Granovskaia had been in charge of during the reign of previous owner Roman Abramovich. 

Boehly has been negotiating Romelu Lukaku’s return to Inter Milan, having already given head coach Thomas Tuchel greater power in terms of Chelsea’s transfer business and contracts. 

Chelsea’s new Boehly-Clearlake owners will almost certainly have to appoint a new sporting director, having already been linked with Atletico Madrid’s Andrea Berta, but until then Boehly and Tuchel will take on the bulk of the responsibility left behind by Granovskaia.
