If you thought that current Chelsea manager Antonio Conte was not given enough transfer funds to exercise his power, his successor will have an even tighter budget.
Antonio Conte did a wonderful job at Chelsea in his first season at the club as he won the Premier League title in his debut season at the helm of Stamford Bridge. However, last summer, Conte was not given enough spending power to bring in the players that he demanded at the club. There were a lot of issues between the Transfer board and Conte, who were never on the same page ever since last summer’s transfer window.
Chelsea is currently fifth on the English Premier League table and are unlikely to secure a top 4 berth but can salvage some glory by winning the FA Cup against Manchester United in next month’s final. And Conte’s job at Chelsea has come under further jeopardy following a run of poor performances toward the end of the season. But with Chelsea also on the verge of preparing for the arrival of a new manager, they will not be able to support him exceedingly with his proposed transfer ideas.
Chelsea’s new stadium where the redevelopment will take place is set to cost around £1.2 billion and the Blues owner Roman Abramovich is currently worth an estimate of £8 billion and he is not going to risk in a massive chunk of his own money into this investment. Therefore Chelsea’s transfer board is keen to borrow funds ranging from £350-£800 million to increase capacity which will certainly take a hit on their transfer of players to arrive at the club.
Conte however, it not the first coach to complain of the lack of transfer funds at Chelsea, there was Jose Mourinho before him who cited the exact same frustrations. So Conte’s successor will have to live or die with a very small transfer budget.
I think that Chelsea is a very shrewd club who are clever with handling their transfers. I feel sorry for their manager’s because they have to work with such a small budget and still deliver the most success. If you want to be a top club, you need some spending power, but Chelsea’s transfer board does all of the clever work with no consent of the manager’s demands. But it looks like Chelsea will have to settle for the Europa League next season.
