- Chelsea's new owners had a myriad of things they needed to address before looking at transfers after taking over from Roman Abramovich
- The Blues are set to lose two key influential administrative staff in Marina Granovaskaia and chairman Bruce Buck
- Once Todd Boehly and his new consortium have put everything in place, Thomas Tuchel is expected to be involved heavily in the choice of players he wants
It was expected to be a busy transfer window from Chelsea under the stewardship of new owner Todd Boehly.
A raft of changes were expected at the club with major departures and arrivals. So far, only departures have been witnessed with the club losing Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen on free transfers.
Romelu Lukaku is expected to follow suit after a failed return back to Chelsea. Boehly is understood to be of the opinion that a Lukaku exit will be better for every party involved.

Admittedly, the transfer window is still in its young stages but there is a little bit of discomfort from Chelsea fans. The club, as it stands, will struggle to match Liverpool, Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspurs who have invested and continue to invest heavily in their squads.
Football London reports that when Boehly and his Clearlake Capital took over Chelsea, they had a couple of things they needed to sort out first before looking at transfers.
The new owners had to renegotiate deals with the sponsors and discuss the contracts of every player across the youth team, women's team and the men's team. The women's team has already signed two new players.
Bruce Buck and Marina Granovskaia set to leave Chelsea
The club is also grappling with administrative change with Bruce Buck expected to leave his post as Chairman by the end of the month. Marina Granovskaia, who has been in charge of transfers, is also expected to leave.
Boehly is understood to have taken charge of Lukaku's return to Inter Milan. Head coach Thomas Tuchel will be allowed to have a major say in the players he wants at the club in what is a major shift in policy.
With the new owners seemingly getting a hang of how things are run at the club, Chelsea fans can now expect to see new players arriving.
