Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel says he wants to remain with the club, despite owner Roman Abramovich putting the Blues up for sale. 

Abramovich revealed he is open to selling Chelsea in the wake of the recent war between Russia and Ukraine.

“I would like to address the speculation in media over the past few days in relation to my ownership of Chelsea FC. As I have stated before, I have always taken decisions with the Club’s best interest at heart. In the current situation, I have therefore taken the decision to sell the Club, as I believe this is in the best interest of the Club, the fans, the employees, as well as the Club’s sponsors and partners,” Abramovic said on Wednesday evening.

Despite reports the west London club is up for sale, Tuchel admits he loves working in the Premier League and he wants to remain as the Blues boss.

“I have no problem staying here,” says Tuchel. “I love working in the Premier League. I love being in England.

“Chelsea, from my point of view, for me, is the perfect fit and I love to be here. Hopefully, it continues.

“There is uncertainty but isn’t it always as a football manager? So I have trained to live with it at different levels and this is quite the level. But I am positive and I hope things will end well.”

According to reports, the team handling the sale has received several bids, some near the  £4 billion valuations by Abramovich.
