Chelsea transfer chief Marina Granovskaia may discover £25million transfer fate this week

Marina Granovskaia, Chelsea's transfer manager, is expected to find out sooner rather than later if the club will have an additional £25 million to invest this summer. 

From Thomas Tuchel's first few months in charge, there has been a lot of excitement at Stamford Bridge.

The German manager has guided Chelsea back into the top four, but more impressively, he has guided the club to the Champions League final after beating Real Madrid over two legs.


      They still have the FA Cup final against Leicester later this month, which could culminate in a trophy-laden start to life in west London for Tuchel.

      Tuchel, who took over from Frank Lampard in January, said at the time that he was pleased with the squad he had at his disposal.

      There were no signings in the final days of the midseason transfer window, but he may want to make a few changes this summer to help launch a championship challenge next year.

      Chelsea has been associated with big-money moves for players like Erling Haaland and Jadon Sancho.

      And the club has shown that they have the funds to invest, having spent almost £250 million on new players last summer.

      That was largely funded by recent player sales, including Eden Hazard and Alvaro Morata.

      And Granovskaia will almost certainly be charged with getting rid of some of Chelsea's fringe players.

      The Blues still have a significant number of loan players that are unlikely to be part of Chelsea's future plans.

      Fikayo Tomori is seen as the only player who could force his way back into Chelsea's starting lineup, but Tuchel's defensive unit has proved to be one of the strongest in the Premier League since taking over from Lampard.

      In January, the 23-year-old was loaned to AC Milan and has quickly established himself as a regular at the back, starting the last nine league games.

      According to Gazzetta Dello Sport, the Italian club is still debating whether to follow Chelsea's £25 million asking price in the summer.

      However, the article claims that a decision will be made based on the outcome of Milan's game against Juventus this weekend.

      Milan is said to be close to fulfilling Chelsea's request, but it will depend on whether the Italian club qualifies for next year's Champions League.

      They are currently fourth in the table, level on points with Juventus and Atalanta.

      However, Napoli and Lazio are also in close proximity, with just five points separating second and sixth position.

      Tomori does not want to leave Chelsea if Milan fails to qualify for the Champions League next season.
