Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel joined the club on a short term deal earlier this season, and the German has proven that he is more than capable of leading the Blues.

Apparently, the Premier League side are now prepared to offer him a three-year contract. The German will be offered a contract until 2023 with the option of another year. 

The former PSG manager has guided Chelsea to a Champions League win earlier tonight against Manchester City, and it is no surprise that the Blues are willing to extend his stay at Stamford Bridge.

Thomas Tuchel is regarded as one of the finest tacticians in the game, and Chelsea have improved dramatically since his arrival.

The Blues have been very difficult to play against in recent months, and their defensive organisation has been outstanding.

Chelsea have kept several clean sheets on their way to Champions League glory this season, and their success has been built on the impressive defensive foundations laid by Tuchel.

Before his arrival, Frank Lampard struggled to get his side organised defensively with the same players, and it shows just how impressive a job the German manager has done.

Tuchel had to win the trophy with the squad handed to him, and he will be hoping to stamp his authority on the side during the summer transfer window.

The German will want to make some of his own signings and build towards a Premier League challenge next season.

Tuchel has proven his quality with Paris Saint Germain and Borussia Dortmund in the past as well, and he will be hoping to make his mark in the Premier League now.

“I am not even 100% sure maybe I have already a new contract now,” Tuchel said. “My manager said something about it. Let’s check this first. I spoke to the owner right now on the pitch. It was the best moment for the first meeting. It can only get worse! We will speak tomorrow. We will speak later. I will stay hungry for the next title. My desire is for more victories and to grow as a coach. It would be nice to meet him a bit closer. We are in contact. Now it’s nice to meet him.”
