Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel, will remain at Stamford Bridge, amid a link to Manchester United if the Blues can resolve their future.
This claim was made by former Chelsea star, Glen Johnson, who believes that Tuchel will do everything within his power to stay at the West London club.
Tuchel has been linked with a move to Manchester United since Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich was sanctioned by the UK government.
Chelsea cannot buy or sell players until a sale of the club goes through, while the reigning Champions League holders are unable to sell match tickets.
There is no guarantee that a new owner will want to keep Tuchel in charge and the former Paris Saint-Germain coach has a close relationship with Ralf Rangnick, who is helping Man United decide on their next permanent manager.
“I think not if he gets some guidance from the Chelsea board about a deal being close,” Johnson told Bettingodds.
“However, if this situation bubbles on for twelve months, then yes. People will be looking for their own futures.
“But if this is done in months, then Tuchel and the players have got some confidence in that, then no, I don’t think he would be interested in the Manchester United job at all.”
Champions League: Lazy cheat – Chelsea hero, Desailly blasts Man Utd star
Chelsea hero, Marcel Desailly has hit out at Manchester United’s Paul Pogba, branding the France World Cup winner as ‘lazy’ and ‘cheating’ as the Red Devils lost 1-0 against Atletico Madrid in the Champions League round of 16 second-leg tie on Tuesday.
Pogba came on for Bruno Fernandes, midway through the second half but struggled to make an impact as Ralf Rangnick’s side was unable to score an equalizer following Renan Lodi’s first-half header.
Atletico Madrid eliminated Man United from the Champions League at Old Trafford on a 2-1 aggregate win to qualify for the quarter-final.
“Quality-wise, you cannot compare Paul Pogba to Fred or [Scott] McTominay or [Nemanja] Matic,” Desailly told beIN SPORTS.
“But he’s lazy, if you allow him to be some kind of playmaker behind [Cristiano] Ronaldo, he will take advantage of it.
“When he goes well, then he’s fantastic. When he doesn’t go well, offensively, he hasn’t gone to what everyone was expecting, and at the same time, he will cheat a little bit and not drop back.
“He cheats a little bit and doesn’t help with the midfield defensively.”
