Tuchel highlights Chelsea ambitions after signing new contract 

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has hinted at reinforcing the squad in order to close the gap between themselves and Manchester City ahead of the new season. 

Tuchel was handed a new two-year contract at Chelsea on Friday until 2024 in a move that didn't surprise anyone and is thoroughly deserved. The former PSG boss led the Blues to the top four, FA Cup final before winning the Champions League after beating Manchester City 1-0. 

When asked about his objectives, Tuchel said he is looking forward to the next steps with ambitions. 

"There is far more to come and we are looking forward to our next steps with ambition and much anticipation," he said on his contract.

Gap 

"We have to accept there is a gap between us and Manchester City. If you look at the fixtures in the last few years we have to accept it, without making us feel too small. From day one next season we will hunt them," Tuchel said in April.

The German tactician had signed an initial 18-moth deal after replacing Frank Lampard and has overseen just five defeats in his 30 games in charge so far.
