Report: Former PSG Manager Could Be an Option for Chelsea if They Continue to Struggle

Now that Paris Saint-Germain and former manager Thomas Tuchel have agreed to a €6-million buyout, according to Sport Bild. This move now allows Tuchel to plan for his next managerial job, which the German media outlet believes will be in the Premier League.

Following up on the reports of Tuchel’s buyout, Sport Bild reports that Chelsea FC could be his next destination. The Blues are currently eighth in the Premier League table and two points out of fourth, but any title hopes are beginning to slip away. 

However, they’ve only won one out of their last four matches and are coming off an embarrassing 3-1 loss to Arsenal FC, who is floundering at the bottom half of the table.

Chelsea spent a significant amount of money on two Germans, Timo Werner and Kai Havertz, both have received their share of criticism from the English media. 

Werner only has eight goals in 22 appearances, and Havertz is starting matches but is getting the hook fast as he’s averaging 61 minutes per game in the Premier League. 

If manager Frank Lampard continues to struggle over the next few matches, Tuchel could be lurking to work with the young Germans and former PSG captain Thiago Silva.
