Chelsea: Key figure could leave in shock Stamford Bridge exit

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel remaining at Stamford Bridge is not nailed on, believes Sky Sports reporter Michael Bridge.

There is a lot of uncertainty at the west London club right now as they prepare to be taken over by a new owner, and Bridge thinks it has put Tuchel’s future in doubt.

What is the latest news involving Tuchel?

While Manchester United have now confirmed the appointment of Erik ten Hag as their new manager, they had been heavily linked with Tuchel prior.

According to multiple outlets, including the Daily Mail, the Red Devils were keeping tabs on the German given everything that is happening at Chelsea right now.

The European champions are set to be sold following the sanctioning of owner Roman Abramovich, a development that has thrown the club into chaos. Throughout the whole ordeal, though, Tuchel has claimed that he is still happy at Stamford Bridge.

“I’m still happy to be here, still happy to be manager of a strong football team,” the 48-year-old told BBC Radio 5 Live (via Sky Sports) last month.

What has Bridge said about Tuchel’s future?

While Tuchel has said that he remains content with life in west London, Bridge thinks he could still end up departing if Chelsea’s pending takeover drags on

Speaking to GIVEMESPORT, the Sky Sports journalist said: “Maybe not [Tuchel staying at Chelsea]. I mean, Tuchel’s handled the whole situation, I think, with Abramovich amazingly. He’s the one who’s just been sitting in the press conferences. It shouldn’t really be him answering certain questions, but it is him.

“He might turn around and say, ‘Look, is it going to be the same next season?’ I think it’s going to be tougher for Chelsea next season.”

Should Tuchel leave Chelsea?

If Chelsea are not sold before the summer, then you could not blame Tuchel for wanting to depart. The Premier League outfit, who are currently unable to sign players or hand out new contracts, cannot remain in their current state if they want to have a successful 2022/23 season.

However, with three consortia vying to buy the Blues from Abramovich, with a preferred bidder set to be announced soon, the club should be sold before the start of the next campaign.

If the above happens, then there probably is no reason for Tuchel to leave. And with the United opening now gone, there is not a job at an elite club for the Champions League-winning manager to walk into.
