PremierLeague-News.Com - Marina Granovskaia has been a key figure at Chelsea for more than a decade taking a prominent role in transfers and business negotiations
PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Chelsea have confirmed that Marina Granovskaia will step down from her role as director of the club at the culmination of the summer transfer window. The 47-year-old follows Bruce Buck standing down as the Blues' chairman earlier in the week. Co-owner Todd Boehly will take Buck's place as Chairman of the board. The Russian-Canadian businesswoman was still speaking to representatives of players as recently as last week and has been Chelsea's figurehead for transfers, contracts and sponsorship deals for a number of years. However, new co-owner Boehly is said to have led talks over the departure of Romelu Lukaku. Among the American's first challenges will be to form a good relationship with Thomas Tuchel who has repeatedly spoken highly of his dealings with Granovskaia and Petr Cech. Granovskaia is said to have helped orchestrate Chelsea move to their current training facility at Cobham, which has heralded a number of stars from the academy.
