Tuchel in talks to extend Chelsea contract

Thomas Tuchel has confirmed he is in talks with Chelsea over a contract extension.

The German coach's current deal already runs until 2024, but Chelsea's new owners are keen to keep him in west London for the long term.

Tuchel signed an 18-month contract on replacing Frank Lampard at the helm in January 2021.

The former Paris Saint-Germain and Borussia Dortmund boss then signed an extension in June 2021 shortly after leading the Blues to the Champions League title.

New owners Todd Boehly and Behdad Eghbali have been impressed by Tuchel's tenure, and Chelsea's new chiefs want to keep the 48-year-old at the Stamford Bridge tiller.
