Thomas Tuchel loves seeking out advice and has considered asking his players to help decide who Chelsea should buy this summer.
Blues boss Tuchel likes to seek out ordinary people for tips on being successful.
And with Chelsea in the market for a striker with Erling Haaland and Sergio Aguero both on their radar, one such meeting could have a bearing on who they go for.
Tuchel said: “I spoke to a conductor in Germany and he told me that once in his orchestra he had to find a new musician.
“He picks three maybe that he likes as a replacement, but the final decision is made through the orchestra. We had a long discussion about this.
“It made total sense to me because they have to play with the new person. I am brave enough to think about what this could mean in recruiting in football.
“Could it be that the team maybe decides, like a pre-selection, and the responsible guys that you trust, your captains, decide with you which one they think fits the most?
“If an orchestra can do it, why not? It’s out of the box thinking.”
