Thomas Tuchel had no intent to sign Ousmane Dembele in this January window.
The 24-year old winger will be out of contract in the summer and would likely leave Camp Nou.
Barcelona will lose him for free in the summer despite the club trying to get Dembele off their books.
Both Dembele and Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel spent a brief period at Borussia Dortmund.
Thomas Tuchel explains that the club did not try to make a late enquiry for the Frenchman.
Tuchel said: “I am satisfied because it was a calm window and to be calm was the best thing. We were open for things. I did not have contact with Ousmane [Dembele]. There was no contact in winter between us.”
Whether there were any frustrations over a quiet January, Tuchel added: “We tried and had ideas. But in the end we stick to what we have and are happy. Reece will come back at some point, unfortunatley not Ben Chilwell, but Reece will comeback and compete for a place in the squad.
