Chelsea boss Tuchel keen to avoid transfer rows

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has vowed not to let disagreements over transfer targets sour relationship at the club in the same way it happened at PSG. 

Tuchel fell out with PSG sporting director Leonardo over player recruitment and was sacked on Christmas Eve last year.

"Transfer periods can be real mood breaks between coaches and clubs and I don't want to have this ever again," said Tuchel.

"I have zero ambition to ruin this atmosphere, not for myself or for anybody else. Do we have some ideas how to improve the squad? Yes, we do. But will we fight about it? No, we will not. We will discuss it and first of all, we will finish this season because it is not time to reflect now."

The 47-year-old has helped Chelsea reach the finals of both the FA Cup and the Champions League.
