Tuchel could also use part of the £200 million to rebuild his midfield as both N'Golo Kante and Jorginho have contracts expiring in 2023.

The Blues boss admitted that he wants 'open and honest' talks with the new owners regarding the investment into his squad as he begins his Chelsea rebuild. 

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."

The Blues are expected to be active in the transfer market as soon as the new owners are in place.
