"Players are going out. We are rebuilding," he said.

"This is always challenging but we are up for the challenge. I don’t know where we are from day one. What I can promise is that I will be here if I can promise that! I will be here with full energy and positive energy no matter what.

"We will still work for Chelsea and I refuse to think of negative scenarios. We will be competitive, on which level we will see."

Chelsea's scouting department are continuing to watch and monitor Tchouameni, who is set for a move this summer but it appears that he is destined to be playing for Los Blancos next season rather than Tuchel's side.
