Tuchel decision made as Chelsea open talks with defender to complete smart summer deal
Trevoh Chalobah is no longer available for a loan move and talks have started to extend his Chelsea contract.
It is no secret that Chelsea now have one of the very best squads in the Premier League and that has meant that a number of talented youngsters have been let go this summer, or be allowed to leave on loan.
And there was a massive feeling from many people in the media that Chalobah was going to be the next talent to leave the club this transfer window, with a number of clubs reportedly interested in a potential deal.
However, after seeing the youngster impress during his Premier League debut last weekend, there has been a feeling that he would be given more of a chance to shine in that Chelsea squad this summer.
Now it has been claimed on the TalkSport website that Thomas Tuchel has taken him off the loan list and will promote him to the first team squad.
The two have met to discuss Chalobah’s future at Chelsea where he is set to stay and even extend his contract with the Blues.
His current contract still has two years on it and shows Chelsea’s commitment to the development of the emerging star among their ranks.
Tuchel recently indicated that he would be happy to ignore all the transfer speculation surrounding the young man and keep him in the squad.
He was quoted on the Football.London website: ‘We have some of the best players in the world in our squad and still there are places for guys from the academy.
‘In the end he plays alongside Reece James and Mason Mount, this is how it has to be. I love it, the spectators love it. This is how it should be that we have a good mix and they still have a place to fight their way through.
‘This is what Chelsea academy stands for, for top quality. And we will never stop pushing.’
Chelsea fans have been very disappointed over the past few months as a number of talented players have departed the club in search of game time, so the news that Chalobah may get his chance is great news
Nobody has ever doubted his quality, he has just not been given the chance to prove himself in that Chelsea shirt, but this season could be the breakthrough he has been hoping for.
