Thomas Tuchel wants N’Golo Kante & Jorginho contracts sorted this summer


Thomas Tuchel has urged Chelsea to finalise new contracts for midfield duo N’Golo Kante and Jorginho this summer before they find themselves in another mess.

The Blues will lose Andreas Christensen to Barcelona on a free transfer this summer and are scrambling to keep fellow defenders Antonio Rudiger and Cesar Azpilicueta at the club beyond this season.

Rudiger has not agreed an extension and is currently free to leave in the summer, and while a one-year option has been triggered in Azpilicueta’s deal, the veteran defender could still be allowed to leave if he fails to agree on fresh terms.

Tuchel rued Chelsea‘s willingness to let the trio’s deals run down at the same time and stressed that he does not want a repeat in 2023, when Kante and Jorginho’s current contracts are up.

“With important players, it’s a wish as a coach that we solve this in the summer anyway,” Tuchel said. That it’s clear where the journey is, what the decision is.
