Good morning and welcome along to our football.london Chelsea news and transfer news live blog.
After wrapping up a top four berth in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon, despite losing 2-1 to Aston Villa at Villa Park, the Blues are now putting the finishing touches to their preparations ahead of Saturday’s UEFA Champions League final against Manchester City in Portugal.
Thomas Tuchel and his players will fly out to Porto today, meaning the next time they step on English shores they will be hoping to have the Champions League trophy as part of their hand luggage.
But as well as preparing for Saturday’s huge one-off contest, the Blues also have the small matter of continuing to plot plans for this summer’s transfer window. Tuchel is expected to be one of the Premier League’s busiest managers this summer, as he looks to try and put his own stamp of authority on the squad he inherited from Frank Lampard back in January.
With that said, a busy few days, weeks and months are sure to lie ahead for the west London club.
As the build-up to Saturday’s big contest in Portugal continues, be sure to stay with football.london to keep right up to date with all the very latest Blues news and transfer gossip as it happens on our dedicated live blog below.
