Chelsea get top four, Pulisic ‘unhappy with Tuchel’, transfer Kounde ‘as soon as takeover is complete’, deal with Lewandowski
Hello Chelsea fans
Chelsea secured third place in the Premier League after a 1-1 draw with Leicester City.
Barcelona transfer target Marcos Alonso was on hand to stifle Foxes star James Maddison’s early strike.
And the Blues’ stalemate with the Foxes means that even if fourth-placed Tottenham draw on points this Sunday with Chelsea, the West Londoners’ biggest goal difference of 18 will be enough to earn them a place behind Liverpool and Man. City.
Thomas Tuchel is eager to break the dominance of Man City and Liverpool in the Premier League.
The German has informed new Blues owner Todd Boehly of his plan, according to the Evening Standard.
And the report states that Tuchel wants financial support from Boehly to realize his vision.
Chelsea star N’Golo Kante has cast further doubt on his future at the club.
Speaking to Sky Sports, the French midfielder brushed aside talk of his long-term future.
“He said, ‘The only thing that’s certain is that I have one year left on my contract. It’s not really my concern.
“The only thing [on my mind] is to end the season well.
“I will think about it at the right time but I just want to finish the season as well as possible.”

“It depends on Chelsea and Tuchel. Lukaku doesn’t want to stay with this coach.
But the reporter insists the loan deal can go ahead as Lukaku is desperate for a return to Inter.
