After the takeover by the consortium of Todd Boehly, Chelsea made significant changes to its organization chart. These changes concern in particular the post of general manager currently occupied by Marina Granovskaia, and for which the former Parisian Maxwell is one of the candidates.
As expected, the management of chelsea will undergo new changes. After the takeover of the American Todd Boehly, whose consortium bought the Blues from Roman Abramovich, the Premier League resident will welcome new leaders into his organization chart. The position of general manager is particularly concerned since Marina Granovskaia, important in the era of the previous Russian owner, will have to leave the place after the transition period.
Chelsea owner Boehly is exploring options for the new director to replace Marina. One of many candidates is former fullback Maxwell – was already assistant sporting director at PSG. 🔵 #CFC
Boehly has 3/4 options in the list, including Michael Edwards. No decision yet.

According to journalist Fabrizio Romano, three or four candidates can claim to succeed him. We find among them the former sporting director of Liverpool Michael Edwards, quoted at Paris Saint-Germain before the appointment of football adviser Luis Campos, but also a certain Maxwell. Since his retirement in 2017, the Brazilian has made a nice CV as the sports coordinator of Paris Saint-Germain, alongside former sports director Antero Henrique. Then the young leader became ambassador of the capital club in Brazil.
Cech will also leave Chelsea
Suffice to say that the head of football development at UEFA would take a big step in his new career if he became the new general manager of Chelsea, he who has never known the Premier League as a player. Note that among the other changes decided, Petr Cech will also leave the Blues. The former Londoners’ iconic keeper will no longer be technical and performance adviser from June 30. ” With the new owner of the club, I think it’s the right time for me to retire. I am happy that the club is now in a great position with the new owners. “, reacted the Czech.
