Chelsea Chiefs To Lose Out On Millions From Takeover Following Stamford Bridge Exits

Bruce Buck and Marina Granovskaia are set to lose out on millions in bonus payments as they depart Chelsea.

This comes after Todd Boehly named their new-look Chelsea structure

However, in leaving their roles at the club, the pair will miss out on millions.

The Mail have reported that the pair will miss out on cash bonuses following their Chelsea departure.

The report states that ‘a significant part of the £50 million package agreed with the new owner for their work on the sale was tied to them continuing at Stamford Bridge after the takeover, and will therefore not be paid in full’.

The duo will receive millions in ‘transaction fees’ from Boehly and Clearlake Capital but not the full amount due to their departures.

Furthermore, Buck ‘made it clear’ that he wanted to remain as Chelsea Chairman and Granovskaia offered to stay in her role at the club until the end of the transfer window.

In the statement, Chelsea confirmed that Boehly has now been named as Chairman, with the board including Behdad Eghbai, Jose Feliciano, Mark Walter, Hansjorg Wyss, Jonathan Goldstein, Barbara Charone, Daniel Finkelstein and James Pade.

Speaking on Granovskaia’s departure, the Blues stated: “The announcement includes the departure of Marina Granovskaia, director of Chelsea FC. Boehly will operate as interim sporting director until the Club names a full-time replacement, continuing the Club’s work towards its targets during the current transfer window. 

“Chelsea FC and Ms. Granovskaia have agreed that she will remain available to Boehly and the Club for the duration of the current transfer window, to the extent required to support the transition.”

With Buck and Granovskaia set to miss out on their huge pay-outs, the Blues will turn their attention to replacing the duo.

A sporting director will be recruited in due course, with Granovskaia available to assist the Blues until the end of the transfer window.

Romelu Lukaku is set to depart the club on a loan deal to Inter Milan, with Boehly having handed power in the transfer market to head coach Thomas Tuchel.

Paul Mitchell has been identified as a potential target, with the AS Monaco sporting director a potential candidate to replace Granovskaia.

It remains to be seen as to what the future holds for Chelsea under Boehly, as they look to close the gap at the top of the Premier League.

Manchester City and Liverpool have already dipped into the transfer market.

Erling Haaland has been recruited by Pep Guardiola's side.

Darwin Nunez has replaced Sadio Mane at Liverpool, with Jurgen Klopp's side looking to challenge for the title once more.

Tuchel will be hoping that with the structural changes made, he can begin to rebuild his squad.
