Tuchel promised major transfer role

Thomas Tuchel has been promised by the club’s new owners that he will have a major say when it comes to the club’s transfer business.

Todd Boehly and his consortium are looking to copy the successful model adopted by teams like Manchester City and Liverpool, although it should be noted that the latter rely heavily on data-driven models that look to exploit market inefficiencies.

The problem with relying heavily on what the manager wants is that the shelf life of the average Premier League boss is not much more than two years. The risk is that when he is replaced, the newcomer will not want the players the previous incumbent signed, or suit their style of football.

However, it is an indication that Tuchel may be given more power in the new structure than he was accustomed to having during the Abramovich era.
