Thomas Tuchel Ousmane Dembele

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel revealed that he did not speak to Ousmane Dembele during the January transfer window. He also believes to be happy with a calm January transfer window. The club tried to sign the Barcelona winger after talks with Paris Saint-Germain stalled. A deal could not be finalized with Dembele now set to see out the final months of his contract with Barcelona.

“I did not have contact with Ousmane. There was no contact in winter,” Thomas Tuchel said talking about Ousmane Dembele. “I’m very satisfied because it was a calm window, and to be calm is always the best thing. No, no frustration because I was also calm. I know what kind of quality we would need to add to a very strong group. We trust in the players that we have and it’s my job to find solutions when we have injuries.”

“We tried, we had ideas, but in the end, we stick to what we have and we’re happy with it. Reece will come back at some point – unfortunately not Ben Chilwell,” he added. “Azpi (Cesar Azpilicueta) is at the moment in fantastic form and a fantastic place, and that’s why it’s fine. We try to find solutions within our squad.”

“Dembele was a big investment, with a big salary. He has been one of the last-minute situations. We offered him an extension, but he wanted a better offer in economic terms,” Barcelona president Joan Laporta said. “His agent decided to stay in silence and this, of course, has consequences for the interests of the club.”
