Thomas Tuchel has denied the rumours insisting that he is already planning to leave Chelsea ahead of next season.
To say that Chelsea’s season took one sharp turn for the negative is being fair with the truth. The West London club were in line to win the Premier League. In fact, they were the bookmakers’ favourite to win the title as of December. They looked on course to achieving those predictions until theyd to unravel midway into the season.
The cracks were deepened by the forced sale of the club, with their future no closer to being resolved.
The question remains of who takes over the reins of ownership of the club and what is the way forward. The imbroglio involving the club and their attempt to find a new owner has its effect, as players are uncertain of their future at the club.
A few players are already on their way out, with their contracts expiring at the end of the season, but the latest report has many Chelsea fans unnerved. A few reports suggested that the current manager Thomas Tuchel is also poised to leave the club this summer.
Tuchel refutes exit rumours
The situation at Stamford Bridge is no closer to being resolved as rumours continue to swirl around the club ownership. It seems every day comes with a new set of intricacies. The latest is an impending exit by Thomas Tuchel.
Since Roman Abramovich relinquished ownership of the club, stating his intention to sell, the club has been in disarray. There are questions over whether Tuchel would stay or leave. The German tactician has put the records straight, denying any intention to leave the club.
According to Tuchel, as quoted by Fabrizio Romano, he has no plans of waving goodbye to Stamford Bridge anytime soon. He said the reports are just tales aimed at unsettling the club further.
Players set to leave
There seems to be a semblance of a garage sale at Stamford Bridge with several poised to leave the club. An air of uncertainty surrounds the club. It is thick and unsettling for the London giants. A few players are out of contract at the end of the season and set to leave.
Antonio Rudiger has already stated his departure from Stamford Bridge in the summer. Others who are yet to confirm their future with the club are Cesar Azpilicueta and Andreas Christensen. The two centre-backs have been integral to Chelsea’s success recently but seem to prefer a new challenge.
Timo Werner and Jorginho also have links to other clubs, with their futures less than assured.
With all the uncertainty surrounding the club, Tuchel insists he is staying and is already planning for next season.
Chelsea play Manchester United, and three points will more or less seal their place in the top four. The Blues also have a chance of silverware when they take on Liverpool in the FA Cup final next month. Tuchel was at the helm when Chelsea lost at Wembley to Leicester City in the FA Cup final last season.
