Thomas Tuchel finally had a conversation with new owner Todd Boehly.
The LA Dodgers co-owner Todd Boehly is expected to complete the Chelsea takeover by this month and bring an end to the bidding process.
He recently attended Chelsea’s game against Wolves and Tuchel had a meeting just before the FA Cup final on Saturday.
Tuchel said: “We had lunch together but it was in a room with everybody like players and staff. It was friendly and open, a very informal meeting over lunch for half an hour or 40 minutes.
“We didn’t go into details. It was not the moment, only to get a feeling and say hello. We talked more about baseball but when the moment is right, we will share our opinions in more detail in the next weeks.”
The German continued: “He paid some money so I don’t think he’s keen to drop the ambition. That would be a big surprise. I am sure that he is ambitious to build a competitive Chelsea for the highest level.”
