Talk about mixed emotions, presently the Chelsea squad’s – including executives all the way down to lesser, but still vital, staff – ambivalence must be in overdrive. There are many positives to construct and produce optimism: Todd Boehly’s consortium seem the absolute real deal who will make great signings, most of the stars are remaining for now, along with Thomas Tuchel’s continued commitment, Champions League is set to recur. Not to mention some key people behind the scenes reportedly staying. Whereas, on the other hand: uncertainty over leading personnel’s future is rife if you believe supposed insight, Tuchel seems stressed, agents can be nuisances, two important defenders shall leave. Oh, and the Blues lost the FA Cup.

The aforementioned cup final could quite easily have gone either way – regardless of what people say of Jurgen Klopp’s amazing ‘mentality monsters’. To be honest, in my view, Chelsea are not as far away from Liverpool’s level as some observers suggest. Or Manchester City’s strong prowess. A difference in class is still evident, yes, especially with depth and confidence; yet the Pensioners’ determination constantly pits them as the closest to the elite pair in the Premier League. Look at CFC’s UCL showing for another reference. When sanctions cease – Boehly must back the boss financially to shorten the gap further.

With regard to Boehly and the current Chels’ manager, they have finally met, apparently. Prior to the weekend trip to Wembley, the American businessman rendezvoused with Tuchel on Thursday. In addition, the LA Dodgers supremo also had a lunch meeting with highly-valued and admired Chelsea Women’s team coach Emma Hayes. Both sitdowns were said to go well; let’s hope the German had his wish granted by being assured over big transfer plans.

One possible target the West London outfit may decide on, is natural-born goalscorer Robert Lewandowski. The hypothetical arrival of Lewandowski at Stamford Bridge would be momentous and potentially monumental. With rivals for the EPL trophy, City, signing Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund, capturing the Pole would arguably be similar. The only prospective incoming out-and-out striker who could generate an equal buzz of hype as the Norwegian heir to his European goalscoring throne, is ‘Lewa’.

Other names would be as media worthy, yet many of us have wanted Lewandowski in the English top-flight for years. He is proven on top echelons, so the best global division is a definite progression in career twilight. Though, is the Bayern Munich hitman a realistic and feasible signing for CFC?

Well, I am uncertain quite how serious we can take it, but ex-Bundesliga and EPL forward Jan Age Fjortoft – now a pundit with notable outlets such as ESPN – claims Barcelona are the favourites to obtain the signature. However, according to Fjortoft, the Blues are in the running providing sanctioning ends. Along with Romelu Lukaku moving clubs, I assume.

Meanwhile Lukaku is performing slightly better, and considers himself in the same premium category as the 33-year-old. Maybe the Belgian deserves time to prove what he professes.
