Thomas Tuchel has started his job as Chelsea manager in the best possible way ever, as the Blues remain defeated and have now won their last five games in all competitions.

However, top reporter Fabrizio Romano has made a bogus claim that Chelsea may have risked upsetting Tuchel in the move for Dayot Upamecano.

Fabrizio Romano, speaking on the latest episode of the ‘Here We Go‘ podcast, claimed that Chelsea failed to make a move for the centre-back who was eventually snapped up by Bayern Munich.

According to Romano, the Chelsea board opted against submitting a bid for Upamecano and instead chose to wait to see how their transfer strategy pans out over the coming months.

Tuchel has a history of being at loggerhead with his club’s board in his previous jobs, but we are definitely certain that losing Upamecano isn’t something that would cause any friction at this stage of the season and so early into his appointment.

Having spent over £200m just last summer, the board will definitely love to see their investments work out well before launching into any other transfer move.
