REVEALED: Chelsea boss Tuchel wanted Rudiger AND Christensen at PSG

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel is delighted to be working with Toni Rudger and Andreas Christensen.

Rudiger has been involved in every game since Tuchel took charge in January, while Christensen has impressed since being called up after Thiago Silva suffered a hamstring injury in victory at Tottenham.

And Goal says it's no surprise Tuchel is leaning on the pair as he tried to sign both Chelsea defenders while in charge of PSG.

Tuchel first made an attempt for Rudiger, before also lodging an enquiry for Christensen.

And it's breaking today that both defenders are set to be offered new terms by Chelsea after convincing Tuchel.
