Tuchel committed to Chelsea as ‘very demanding summer’ looms

Thomas Tuchel accepts Chelsea are in for a “very, very demanding summer” regardless of how the club’s ownership situation plays out, but says he is committed to staying at the club and putting them back on the front foot.
It has been nigh-on impossible for Tuchel to make active moves in the transfer market while Chelsea remain up for sale, and even if a deal was concluded imminently there would be ground to make up in pursuing targets. That is doubly inconvenient given that key defender Antonio Rüdiger has announced he will leave, and another centre-back, Andreas Christensen, is also likely to depart.
Tuchel was asked, with reference to Ralf Rangnick’s recent remark that Manchester United require “open-heart surgery”, about the kind of work his side must undergo and said he faced a complicated task.
