Chelsea key man on the verge to agree new long-term deal

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel will reportedly be offered a new three-year deal at the end of the current campaign.

Brought in as a replacement for Frank Lampard in January, Tuchel has secured 17 wins from his 25 games in charge, suffering just two loss.

As well as moving into the top four of the Premier League table, the West London club have qualified for the finals of the FA Cup and Champions League.

According to the Daily Mail, Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich now wants to hand the German an extension to his initial 18-month deal.

The report claims that the 47-year-old is happy to pen fresh terms after previously having concerns about his relatively short-term deal at the London giants.

Should Tuchel sign the new contract, he would be tied to Stamford Bridge until 2023, with the team possessing the option of extending the agreement for a further 12 months.

Meanwhile, Man Utd and Chelsea are reportedly both weighing up a summer move for Bayern Munich forward Kingsley Coman.

The France international has managed to take part in 18 goals and assists for Bayern Munich in what has been a stunning 2020-21 season.

Bayern are eager to extend Kingsley Coman’s contract beyond the end of 2022-23 when it is currently set to expire, however, the 24-year-old is believed to have turned down their first proposal.
