Chelsea’s £40m investment on young players outlines their long-term strategy

Chelsea have been quite active in the transfer market under the new ownership of Todd Boehly and Clearlake Capital. Alongside first team manager Thomas Tuchel, Boehly has taken charge of recruitment after the departures of Petr Cech and Marina Granovskaia. 

The first team has seen the arrivals of Raheem Sterling, Kalidou Koulibaly and Marc Cucurella. But, Boehly is planning for the future as well by recruiting some of the top youngsters in the world. So, the tradition of promoting exceptional youngsters through the academy is continuing despite the change in ownership. 

Chelsea’s new ownership and their youth recruitment strategy 

Cesare Casadei and Carney Chukuemeka are two of the latest young players to make the move to West London. Both young midfielders are very highly rated, and will develop as part of the renowned Cobham academy before they are given a chance in the first team. 

American goalkeeper Gabriel Slolina has been loaned back to Chicago Fire, with the 18-year-old expected to be a part of the future of the club as well.

Former Arsenal youngster Omari Hutchinson has also made the move to Chelsea, despite the Gunners offering him a contract extension. 

The likes of Kevin De Bruyne, Mohamed Salah and Romelu Lukaku were all part of the Chelsea academy. But, they were sold after only a brief spell. Under the new ownership, fans will be hopeful of more patience from the board when it comes to youngsters so that they can actualise their potential.
