The Todd Boehly era at Stamford Bridge seems to have begun with the American boss sacking coach Thomas Tuchel after just the first seven games of the new season and quickly putting Graham Potter in the hot seat.
However, as revealed by Standard Sport journalist Nizaar Kinsella, in order to get Brighton to agree to Potter’s departure, The Blues have to spend up to £ 21.5 million.
At that time, Potter still had a contract with “Seagull” until 2025. Therefore, Chelsea needed to spend a record amount of money for a new coach to ensure the conditions for bringing the strategist. Englishman to Stamford Bridge.
With this huge amount of money, Brighton has significantly improved the budget. They have a turnover of 174 million pounds.
Meanwhile, it didn’t take them long to find a worthy replacement for Potter. The American Express Community Stadium team contacted Shakhtar Donetsk and reached an agreement to recruit Roberto De Zerbi – who helped the club continue to light up hopes for a ticket to the European Cup.
