Tuchel will now look to push on after a history-making season, where Chelsea lifted the Club World Cup for the first time.

Todd Boehly's consortium are set to take over from Roman Abramovich by the end of the month as they prepare to close the gap to Liverpool and Manchester City next season, with the two teams battling it out for the title on the last game of the season.

Tuchel admitted that he believes Boehly will keep the high standards and ambition at Chelsea due to the price he is paying for the club.

"He paid some money so I don’t think he’s keen to drop the ambition. That would be a big surprise. I am sure that he is ambitious to build a competitive Chelsea for the highest level," he said.

It remains to be seen as to how active Chelsea will be in the transfer window as they look to build a squad worthy of challenging for titles.
