Thomas Tuchel pleads with contract rebel Andreas Christensen to stay at the club amid reported interest from Barcelona.
But Tuchel has previously spoken of his desire for the defender to stay at the club – and it appears the Chelsea boss is keen to keep him at Stamford Bridge.
The Russian billionaire has funded the most successful period in Chelsea’s history, culminating in their second Champions League winning since he bought the club at the end of last season.
But Financial Fair Play has since changed the economic landscape of the game, and Wenger thinks things will be quite different for the club’s new owners.
Roman Abramovich is said to be taking a cautious look at the offer he received from a consortium hoping to buy Chelsea.
A consortium led by American billionaire Todd Boehly and Swiss businessman Hansjorg Wyss is said to have moved quickly after the Russians put the Blues up for sale, with an offer already being made.
However, Abramovich has yet to officially respond to the offer as he is mulling it over.
With around 10 parties believed to be interested in buying the club, Abramovich is stopping to commit further to the offer he already has.
