Thomas Tuchel shared his concerns over Chelsea’s summer transfer window being shrouded in uncertainty due to the takeover but indicated plans are being formed at a smaller level.
“Yes, we are behind in that race. We said before yes. Maybe it is a disadvantage but only a slight disadvantage. Whatever team we have will be competitive because we have competitors.
“The club will always be strong, even if things turn out and it’s the same squad. We will arrive for the very first match to win the match. We have never done anything else and will never do anything else.
“We have clear ideas how to improve, how to freshen the squad, improve the squad, bring new energy and quality. Would not be the first transfer window where you have a wish and cannot make it as a coach.
“We will find solutions but first of all we must adapt to the general situation. Then we see if it is possible and what is possible.”
