When asked if holding conversations with Boehly will be beneficial to the head coach, Tuchel said: "Yes, but I don’t know. We will be very open and honest.

"He will get my point of view if he wants to have it. Of course, we lose key players and we struggle lately to win our home games. He was at the final in Wembley too. So, maybe when the deal is done and he is our owner, he is the lucky charm that we need. We give him some more credit."

Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen will depart the Blues at the end of the season upon the expiry of their contracts, with Chelsea needing to dip into the transfer market to replace the defensive duo.

It remains to be seen as to what the future holds for the club as they head into their first transfer window under the Boehly consortium's ownership.
