Chelsea insiders convinced Granovskaia, Buck and Cech all set to leave

Chelsea insiders are growing increasingly concerned managing director Marina Granovskaia and chairman Bruce Buck will leave once owner Roman Abramovich sells up.

The Athletic reports multiple sources in and outside the club fear key personnel including Buck, Granovskaia and Petr Cech will follow Abramovich out of the door.

Chelsea chairman, Buck, has been in the role since 2004. During that time he has become a trusted advisor to Abramovich. Therefore, he could leave the club following the billionaire’s departure.

Granovskaia – who has been handling Chelsea’s transfers and contractual business since 2014 – could also leave the club over the coming weeks.

Granovskaia was responsible for signing Kai Havertz from Bayer Leverkusen for a fee of £89million in 2020. She also brokered the deal that saw Romelu Lakaku return to the club in 2021 in a deal worth £98m.

The 40-year-old is said to have a good relationship with Tuchel and was recently presented with an award for her work at Chelsea, but it may not be enough to keep her at the club.

Granovskaia’s potential departure from Chelsea is cause for real concern as Antonio Rudiger, Cesar Azpilicueta and Andreas Christensen are all out of contract in the summer.

The club are still in the process of discussing their extensions and it is believed Granovskaia had been making headway with the Chelsea defenders.

However, her departure could see the negotiations fall through – meaning Chelsea will be without several key players next season.
