Chelsea chief Todd Boehly takes unusual approach to Jhon Duran negotiations

News Update: Chelsea owner Todd Boehly has reportedly scaled back his approach to big money transfer deals as the club close in on the signing of Jhon Duran. The Aston Villa striker is expected to join the Blues in a £40million deal this summer, having found his first team opportunities limited under Unai Emery.

Dhuran, 20, joined Villa Park in January 2023 after being acquired by Chicago Fire for £14.75 million.

Although he scored a brace in the exciting 3-3 draw with Liverpool in May coming off the bench, the Colombian international has only managed eight club goals since. This should serve as a reminder to potential purchasers of his abilities.

However, given Boehly’s apparent shift in bargaining strategies, the Telegraph claims that an agreement is still far from final. Since succeeding Roman Abramovic, the American has been ostentatious, shelling out more than £1 billion in transfer fees.

However, a lot of his purchases have been judged as failures. Furthermore, the club’s practice of paying players exorbitant amounts and signing them to lucrative contracts has drawn harsh criticism from observers and supporters.

Boehly is reportedly being more circumspect in his pursuit of Duran because the team also needs to avoid breaking any profit and sustainability regulations.The forward and Chelsea are allegedly in talks over personal terms. Prior to finalising any agreement, background checks will be conducted.

Additionally, it is said that Chelsea plans to provide Dhuran “a long, incentivised deal” in order to prevent the player from losing motivation or accepting large salaries when doing poorly. In contrast, previous agreements have given people like Mykhailo Mudryk generous salaries spread over an eight-year period.

Additionally, it’s unlikely that new manager Enzo Maresca would be granted the same latitude in making purchases as former managers Graham Potter and Mauricio Pochettino. Tosin Adarabioyo, a center-back for Fulham, was actually his first acquisition; he was a free agent and had no contract.
