Chelsea boss Tuchel scoffs at Man Utd rumours

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has moved to shutdown talk of a move to Manchester United.

With owner Roman Abramovich sanctioned and while Chelsea strive to find a new owner as quickly as possible, other top-flight clubs are poised to take advantage of any financial repercussions that could see players, or even the manager, seek to leave.

United now have Tuchel in their sights, alongside long-term potential suitors Mauricio Pochettino and Erik ten Hag, but neither have the star power or trophy haul to match the German.

However, at his pre-match press conference ahead of Chelsea's FA Cup quarter-final against Middlesbrough, Tuchel abruptly shut down any talk of a switch to Old Trafford.

"Do you feel me less committed?" he asked in response to a question over his future. "I said many times, I love working for Chelsea Football Club.

"This club has everything here to make me happy. There are plenty of reasons to stay."
