With Chelsea losing a beat at the top of the Premier League, the pressure has continued to mount on Frank Lampard.
After a monumental spend in the summer window, the Blues hierarchy would be forgiven for wanting a little more from the first team squad this season.
the Daily mirror reported that Tuchel was on Roman Abramovich’s radar after a series of poor results, and Bild (quoted by the Daily Mirror) even went so far as to suggest that the oligarch might have severed ties with Lampard had Chelsea lost to Aston Villa.
However, the Blues boss may have received an unexpected lifeline with Image, quoted by the Daily Mirror, now suggests that one of Barcelona’s presidential candidates has Tuchel as his number one target for the manager position.
January 24 is the most important date for the La Liga team, since it is when its members go to the polls.
Whether Tuchel is in place at Stamford Bridge by then will probably depend on how well January has gone in terms of results for West Londoners.
