Chelsea rubbish claims that Tuchel will replace Conte

Chelsea have no intention of replacing manager Antonio Conte with former Borussia Dortmund boss Thomas Tuchel, despite rumours suggesting otherwise.

Reports of tension between Conte and the Blues board surfaced this summer, speculating a possible exit for the Italian tactician after a successful debut season at Stamford Bridge.

Despite the Italian coach signing a new two-year deal in July after winning the Premier League title, Bild has claimed that Chelsea officials have sought out Tuchel about potentially taking over.

The German publication claims that Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia is behind the move for Tuchel after she was left fuming about Conte’s treatment of Costa, who she helped the club sign from Atletico Madrid in 2014.

However, according to The Mirror, the West London outfit have no plans to part with their current manager, who has overseen one defeat and one win so far in the league this season.
