“A statement in the next week”

There are expectations that we will soon be getting an official statement over the future of one of Chelsea’s key figures after the new ownership change.

There’s been many reports on this, but at the moment there is no clarity on what the future holds.

Sources: Chelsea have a genuine interest in Matthijs De Ligt and are in talks to sign him.

We are of course speaking about Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia, who is often loved or hated by Chelsea fans.

She has worked with former owner Roman Abramovich for a long time, and many expected her to be departing with the Russian billionaire. So far though, she has stayed to oversee the transition and maybe even this transfer window.

However, that doesn’t mean her long-term future is at Chelsea, and some believe she will soon be issuing a statement on her future, with many believing her time at the club could soon be coming to an end.

Transfer insider Dean Jones was speaking on Give Me Sport.

He says:

“I’m expecting some clarity on her situation soon. I was told that there might even be a statement in the next week or so over Granovskaia’s role at Chelsea, so it’ll be an interesting one. Largely, I think she’s done a really good job at Chelsea, but there have been some failures.

“You go back and look at the [Romelu] Lukaku situation last summer, there were definitely some people around Chelsea that didn’t think that was a good idea, but Abramovich did and Granovskaia did and it hasn’t worked out. So it’ll be interesting to see which way that falls, but there’s certainly some doubt over whether she continues.”
