Chelsea are set to offer Thomas Tuchel a new three-year contract, according to reports.
The German has transformed the Blues since taking over from Frank Lampard in January
and is set to be rewarded for leading them to the FA Cup and Champions League finals
and the top four.
Thomas Tuchel has done a superb job since he arrived at Stamford Bridge in January
and he is on the verge of achieving absolute greatness and perfection in his first few
months at the club if he manages to lift the Champions League trophy,
and even if he doesn’t, he has a great chance of winning the FA Cup and has been
a real success regardless.
Tuchel signed an 18-month deal when he took charge.
The contract included clauses that entitle him to an extension if certain targets
are hit but the Blues want to secure his long-term future.
Chelsea will reportedly offer a two-year deal with an option for a third.
Tuchel’s salary will increase from the £7million-a-year he is on at the moment.
And the 47-year-old is said to be eager to sign having been wary of the short-term
nature of his current contract.
Chelsea are said to be the driving force behind the talks with Tuchel remaining focussed
on the huge upcoming games for his team.
The former Paris Saint-Germain boss is in line for serious bonuses if the Blues win
the Champions League and finish in the top four.
And although he will be rewarded for winning the FA Cup too, the sum he will receive
is said to be far smaller.
