£97million Frenchman sends tuchel possible summer transfer message

Barcelona forward has revealed Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has been his favourite manager to play under to date.

The French winger has failed to light up LaLiga as many expected following a £97million move from Borussia Dortmund in 2017, as he has been constantly injured and in and out of that Barcelona side.

That has led to alot of speculation in the media that Barcelona may look to offload the Frenchman in the coming transfer window, especially as there are many reports that they need to pay off a £900 million debt.

And it appears Dembele would be keen to link up once again with his former Dortmund boss Tuchel, who has been tipped to make a transfer move for the speedy winger when the transfer window opens up in just a few months time

Dembele remembers the season they had together very fondly and still holds the current Chelsea manager in high regard, Speaking to BeIN sports, Dembele said: ‘Thomas Tuchel really convinced me, he is my favourite manager.’

He continued: ‘With Thomas Tuchel I played a bit more on the right side at the beginning of the season, and then I was moved more centrally, in the 10 position, sometimes even in the midfield three you see.

‘And he told me to stay a bit more central, have an espresso as he used to say to me, the ball will come to you and then you will go. ‘It would have been hard to leave Dortmund if Tuchel had stayed.’


Chelsea are linked with every player under the sun, so it doesnt mean that they are keen on Dembele. But for the right price, Tuchel may feel that he has the managerial qualities to get the very best out of the Frenchman?
