​Chelsea manager Tuchel preferred candidate to replace Ancelotti at Real Madrid

Spanish giants Real Madrid have made Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel their main target for the summer.

Los Blancos are unlikely to continue with Carlo Ancelotti next season, even if they win La Liga.

The 13-time European champions lost 4-0 to Barcelona last weekend, which has prompted questions about the Italian's future at the club.

According to Sportin Spain, Chelsea coach Tuchel is their prime target should they sack Ancelotti.

Another possibility would be Paris Saint-Germain coach Mauricio Pochettino, who is also linked to Manchester United.

Tuchel could depart Chelsea this summer as the club's future remains uncertain.

The Blues are expected to be sold in the coming weeks following the UK Government's sanctions on Russian owner Roman Abramovich.

German coach Tuchel is under contract with Chelsea until 2024.
