Last December, PSG chose to part ways with Thomas Tuchel. The German has since rebounded very well on Chelsea's side, but even in London he has not forgotten the capital club, who clashed a few weeks ago.

Arrived at the head of PSG in 2018, Thomas Tuchel managed to take the capital club a step further by breaking the glass ceiling in the Champions League. With him, the Parisians made it to the final, even though it ended in a loss to Bayern Munich . A setback that cost the German dearly. Indeed, the players of PSG had difficulty given the context to get back on the road after that. And faced with the poor results of the first part of the season, Leonardo then took a radical decision last December, choosing to part ways with Tuchel . If Mauricio Pochettino succeeded him to PSG , the native of Krumbach has rebounded on the side of Chelsea and everything is going for the best on the side from London. Despite the divorce, Thomas Tuchel has not forgotten his former club, however, to the point of considering going there this summer. And the converse also seems to be true.

The war between Tuchel and PSG on the transfer window!

A few months after parting ways, PSG and Thomas Tuchel have visibly found each other, this time in the transfer market. Thus, the coach of Chelsea apparently wanted to go to use within the Parisian squad to strengthen his own. A few weeks ago, the English press revealed in particular an interest of Thomas Tuchel for Marco Verratti . But he would not have been the only PSG player to have been targeted by the German. Indeed, this Tuesday, RMC revealed that the former Parisian technician wanted to offer himself Marquinhos , in particular in order to reform the pair with Thiago Silva . He would have made the request to the direction of the Blues, which would then have released a budget of 100M € for this operation. But the Londoners then broke their teeth on PSG who immediately closed the door for Marquinhos , not wanting to part with his captain.

While Thomas Tuchel would therefore have wanted to help PSG, Leonardo would also have tried to go dig in the side of Chelsea within the German workforce. According to information revealed by Footmercato, the Parisian sporting director would have taken information from the Blues to study a possible transfer of N’Golo Kanté . After the arrival of Georginio Wijnaldum , PSG were looking for another midfielder and the solution could therefore have been found with the French international. But again, the discussions quickly ended between the two clubs. In Chelsea , it was very clear, Kanté was not for sale this summer and the Londoners do not intend to part with it, currently wishing him offer a new contract.
