It was reported last week that Tuchel had been informed that Todd Boehly’s consortium had been awarded preferred bidder status by the Raine Group and that the official provided an update of his views on Friday.

“I was told last week that we had a preferred bidder and things are moving forward,” Tuchel revealed. “It’s quite an important week for the club, but I was fully focused on the pitch. But after what I heard last week, I’m confident.

“Clearance is always best, because when the situation is clear, you can take action, make judgments, take action. Otherwise you’re in a passive role, and that’s who we are right now. “

“I still want him to play an important role,” he said. “At the moment he is an important part of the team next season. There are no players ready to leave or to improve because of the situation.

“We signed a great player, we still have a great player. He didn’t come [against Everton] because we had three substitutes and had to use one for Jorgi at half-time. He has trained very well and will maybe start tomorrow.”

Real Madrid’s success can give Chelsea a boost

Although he wasn’t really involved in Real Madrid’s remarkable run to the Champions League final, ex-Chelsea player Eden Hazard could help his former club get a boost if Los Blancos triumph. against Liverpool.

Hazard was recognized as one of the best players on the planet when he joined Madrid in 2019, although his spell at the Santiago Bernabeu was destroyed by a succession of injuries.

Nonetheless, as part of the deal Chelsea and Real reached, if the Spanish giants win the European Cup, that would trigger a clause which in turn would see the Blues receive an extra payment.
