Chelsea’s new policy restructuring represents a ‘historic change’

Chelsea owner Todd Boehly is preparing to implement a policy of 'American contracts' for young players, which would be unprecedented in some of the Premier League's major clubs

Chelsea owner Todd Boehly is planning a new strategy for implementing a ‘American contract’ policy for players under the age of 25, giving players in the academy seven-year contracts.

The Blues’ new strategy seeks to ensure that the club’s best young players remain with the club during their peak years, as is common in American sports. English clubs frequently seek to sign young talent to five-year contracts.


There have been a number of deals that have begun to implement that policy, such as Marc Cucurella signing a six-year contract with Brighton, and Carney Chukwuemeka signing a similar contract with Aston Villa.

Boehly also wants to extend the contracts of the club’s current young players. Mason Mount, Reece James, and Armando Broja are among those Chelsea wants to renew as soon as possible.

This trio will most likely be offered a 6-year contract with the option to extend for an additional year under the new plan.


It remains to be seen whether the players would consider staying with Chelsea during that time, particularly Mount and James, two of Europe’s most accomplished young players who are attracting attention. There is a lot of interest from all over the old continent.

However, Chelsea’s move to attract the best players by signing long-term contracts demonstrates that the new owner wants to secure the futures of key members of the team while maintaining the transfer value. their future concessions in the event of interest from other clubs

Chelsea is currently trying to renew some of its players. The Blues hope to keep goalkeeper Edouard Mendy until 2027. Furthermore, N’Golo Kante’s future was being considered, as the French player was nearing the end of his contract with Chelsea.

Chelsea should say no to Man United.

Chelsea still has a lot of work to do, and they may not be able to finish it all before the transfer window closes in two weeks. One of the most difficult challenges the Blues face is determining the futures of players who want to leave.


They are players signed by another manager, players who are not good enough to play for Chelsea’s first team, or players who are disliked by Thomas Tuchel. Christian Pulisic, a player from the United States, is a well-known name. After not seeing much game time under Tuchel, the former Dortmund man is facing an uncertain future in west London.

According to reports, the German coach regards Pulisic as a “super substitute,” which has fueled rumors linking the American player to other clubs. Pulisic has also made no secret of his dissatisfaction with his lack of playing time for Chelsea in recent seasons. As his 24th birthday approaches, he must weigh his future options.


According to the Athletic, Manchester United is looking to loan Pulisic to Old Trafford. Pulisic may want to move to the north of England for more playing opportunities, even if it means joining a struggling club. However, Chelsea should reject the Red Devils’ offer right away.
