Thomas Tuchel has revealed that he had a conversation with prospective Chelsea owner Todd Boehly. The US businessman visited the Cobham base before the FA Cup final last week, meeting the club staff.
“We had lunch together but it was in a room with everybody like players and staff,” Tuchel recalled of the meeting, as quoted by Chelsea’s official website.
“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.
“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.”
