“No reaction at all,” said Thomas Tuchel when reporters asked him about the recent links to Manchester United during a press conference.
“Do you feel me less committed to the club or less involved in the club in my situation?
“I think absolutely not, I love to be here and I love to work for Chelsea.”
The Chelsea boss added: “This club has everything it needs to make me happy and that’s why it’s no need and we have plenty of reasons to stay in the moment here and that’s what we’re doing.”
Top outlets have confirmed the Red Devils’ interest in Tuchel, who led Chelsea to a Champions League triumph despite taking over from Frank Lampard mid-season in 2020/21.
However, Chelsea’s future as a club is fairly uncertain given the massive sanctions placed on Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich for his closeness with Vladimir Putin.
Putin’s invasion of Ukraine has spanned over three weeks, as the lives of millions of civilians have been changed forever. Both sides have incurred heavy losses and continue to hold negotiations but there has been no indication of a ceasefire just yet.
Meanwhile, United are also reportedly looking at Erik ten Hag and Mauricio Pochettino to potentially replace Ralf Rangnick next season.
