Chelsea Football Club ran through a major change recently as Thomas Tuchel was sacked from the coaching role, a decision that shocked the football fraternity. Chelsea management has sacked several managers in the past had the managers failed to bring the best out of the players.
As far as Thomas Tuchel’s case is concerned, he has built a team that no team wanted to play against. Under his tutelage, Chelsea won the UEFA Champions League by beating Manchester City in the final. The Blues also went on to win the FIFA Club World Cup by defeating Palmeiras by 2-1.
It was indeed a big shock after Thomas Tuchel was sacked right after the club’s 1-0 defeat at the hands of Croatian professional football club GNK Dinamo Zagreb in the first match of the group stage of this season’s Champions League. Chelsea appointed Graham Potter as the new manager.
Meanwhile, in the latest development, Chelsea is on the lookout for Tottenham transfer target Milan Skriniar. The Inter Milan defender who captains Slovakia national team has drawn praise from many Italian pundits for his positional acumen.

Moreover, he is known for his sheer ability in the air and can also come out on top, especially in one on one situations. As per CalcioMercatoWeb, Chelsea is trying its maximum best to acquire the services of the 27-year-old ahead of the January window.
Apart from Tottenham, PSG is also expected to make another move for Inter Milan centre-back. For the unversed, Paris Saint-Germain were trying to sign the Inter centre-back for a long time in the summer market. The report added that the French giants plotted a late £70m move to sign Skriniar but the move didn’t work out.
The defender stayed at the San Siro this summer. Nevertheless, the Ligue 1 champions and Chelsea are expected to go toe-to-toe with each other to recruit the star defender once again when the January transfer window kick-starts.
