Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has promised Roman Abramovich and the Chelsea hierarchy there will be no repeat of his PSG fall-out over this summer’s transfer plans.

Tuchel fell out with Paris Saint-Germain sporting director Leonardo over the transfer of Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Tuchel, who enjoyed two successful seasons with him at Borussia Dortmund, had recommended that PSG should sign him from Arsenal only to be overruled and handed Mauro Icardi.

The fall-out over Aubameyang is thought to have been the beginning of the end of Tuchel’s relationship with Leonardo and PSG, who eventually sacked him on Christmas Eve last year.

“Transfer periods can be real mood breaks between coaches and clubs,” said Tuchel, according to The Telegraph. “And I don’t want to have this ever again.

“I have zero ambition to ruin this atmosphere, not for myself or for anybody else. Do we have some ideas how to improve the squad? Yes, we do. But will we fight about it? No, we will not. We will discuss it and first of all we will finish this season because it is not time to reflect now.”
