Chelsea have also been linked with Ousmane Dembele who is set to leave Barcelona, but Tuchel remained coy on his situation at the Camp Nou. 


“He is a very good player when he is in his top level," said the Chelsea head coach.

"I am very fortunate to have trained him in my time at Dortmund. It was only one year, it should have been longer. I needed to leave and he decided to leave. 

"From there we are not in closest contact, we met here and there because of his duties for the French national team and of course I was in Paris so this was more or less when they were preparing for national duties, it’s very close to Paris. This is where we met or exchanged some messages.

“He is in a situation (at Barcelona), I have no idea why or what the situation and detail is. I know how I feel about it when it’s about my players so it is better not to talk.”
