Chelsea have shelled out a tremendous sum to secure their dream managerial candidate.

The Blues have sacked German coach Thomas Tuchel and appointed ex-Brighton boss Graham Potter.

According to the BBC, Brighton have received £21million to release Graham Potter and his staff from their contracts.

Chelsea co-owner Todd Boehly is said to have not had a good relationship with Tuchel this summer and at the start of the season.

The club also believes that Potter is the man who can help spearhead a long-term project to ensure success on the pitch.

While Brighton will be scrambling to find a replacement, they have received a significant financial compensation for their troubles.
