Tuchel admits several Chelsea players remain in limbo

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel admits several of his players remain in limbo.

Tuchel has already revealed the Stamford Bridge club are in talks with Cesar Azpilicueta about his future, despite the club captain having triggered an automatic one-year contract extension.

Barcelona continue to be keen on the right wing-back and the Catalan giants are understood to hold strong interest in Marcos Alonso too.

Chelsea cannot resolve the futures of contracted players until Todd Boehly's takeover is complete, leaving manager Tuchel conceding several players were facing an uncertain few days ahead.

"It's a bit strange, you don't really know what's going to happen," said Tuchel.

"If we are able to sell, do we want to sell, do we have a chance to get alternatives?

"So the situation is, not only for us, as those responsible for the rebuild and responsible for the transfers, but also for the players, a strange situation.

"And you could feel it. Over a long, long period of time we managed to keep the focus and put it aside, but, the longer it went after the international break, it had an impact on us, and still does.

"So let's see, when, finally, we will have the chance to act and make up, because the disadvantage in terms of timing for the rebuild is big."
