Thomas Tuchel says Roman Abramovich is making the ‘right decision’ to sell Chelsea.
But the Blues boss insists the Russian’s departure will NOT affect his squad.
Tuchel told BBC One: “Maybe I heard it a little earlier than you did, but still close to kick-off. We’ve heard the rumors all day, seen them on TV, when we have team meetings and eat together, everyone talks about it.
“This is big news, let’s wait and see what the day brings. I think every decision he makes is the right decision, it’s his choice, his club, it’s not up to me to comment. “
“Hopefully not too much in the short term for us as a team, staff and players, maybe it won’t even change anything, but the situation is out there now and it’s a big situation so I can understand a lot of reports.
“We’re trying to block out the noise and stay focused, which isn’t always easy, but we showed today that we can do it.
“We don’t live on an island, the players have internet – some are more concerned playing a game in the same day that requires absolute concentration is not that easy and makes it a greater achievement.”
Meanwhile, Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti has reportedly emerged as a potential short-term option for Manchester United.
Ancelotti has a close relationship with legendary Red Devils manager Sir Alex Ferguson, who is often consulted by his former club.
And according to ESPN, Ancelotti has been recommended by the Scot as a short-term option should United fail to sign Ferguson’s first goal Mauricio Pochettino.
The 62-year-old Italian currently manages La Liga leaders Real and could have his fifth league title under his belt this summer.
And a manager with a title-winning pedigree is exactly what Man Utd are looking for.
