There have been major developments in the situation surrounding Chelsea’s manager next season.
Thomas Tuchel has been a wanted man by several of Europe’s elite throughout this campaign and Bayern Munich have been among those teams pursuing the former-Dortmund boss.
Whilst Chelsea head coach Antonio Conte’s future at the club is under a dark cloud, Tuchel has been seen as the Italian’s potential successor at Stamford Bridge.
When speaking to Sky Sports and quoted by the official Bundesliga website, Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has given an update on Tuchel’s current status.
“Our sporting director, Hasan Salihamidzic has held talks with coaches — that’s his job — and among them was Tuchel.
“Last Friday, Thomas Tuchel told us that he’s signed with another club. One has to accept that, but it’s not a problem for us.”
The reports from the Mirror last week suggesting that Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia was impressed in a meeting with Tuchel, could add more clarity that the German will be our next manager.
In what’s been a turbulent season for Blues fans, the sooner the situation over who will be in charge of the first team is resolved the better.
