THIS is the moment Chelsea staff carefully placed the club’s second Champions League trophy alongside the rest of their collection at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues secured Europe’s major prize a week ago with a stunning 1-0 win over highly-lauded Manchester City.

Chelsea finally got to add their second Champions League to their trophy cabinet

Kai Havertz’s strike just before the break was enough for Thomas Tuchel’s men to seal the deal.

And the magnificent Champions League trophy was finally laid to rest in Stamford Bridge’s bulging trophy cabinet after making the trip from Porto.

Chelsea’s latest success looks set to pave the way for even more silverware under Tuchel.

The German tactician has already extended his contract until 2024, having only joined the club in January.

And a second successive major transfer spree is set to be back by owner Roman Abramovich.

It’s believed Tuchel is targeting a new striker, central midfielder and at least one defender.

Among those linked with moves to London include Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland, Atletico Madrid’s Saul Niguez and Real Madrid’s Raphael Varane.

Meanwhile, the Blues have begun a mini squad clear-out by releasing goalkeeper Willy Caballero and midfielder Marco van Ginkel.

Fringe players like Tiemoue Bakayoko, Davide Zappacosta and Emerson Palmieri are also set to be sold.

And Chelsea will receive £24million when Fikayo Tomori makes his AC Milan loan permanent.

But veteran stars Thiago Silva and Olivier Giroud will be sticking around for at least one more year after having their contracts automatically extended.
