The German coach did not react to recent rumors about the purchase of two strikers.


boss Thomas Tuchel has denied rumors that the Blues are trying to sign Erling Haaland and Sergio Aguero.

Mino Raiola, Haaland's agent is trying to negotiate with Europe's best teams and choose the best option for the transfer of the Norwegian star. While Chelsea made several signings last summer, rumors are circulating that Haaland will move to London. However, the German coach denied this.

"He's (Haaland) a Borussia Dortmund player, and, of course, there's big news around him and his agent,"

Tuchel said.

"It seems like they are creating a race for the player. But still, everybody needs to accept, and I will fully accept, that he is a Borussia Dortmund player.

"He is a very promising player, of course, but concerning the situation, he's not in our squad. He's not in our club so there's no comment on anything else regarding him."

Sergio Aguero will leave Manchester City in summer and has not yet chosen his next destination. Tuchel added on rumors about possible transfer of Aguero:

"It is the same answer as for Haaland. We have full respect for Manchester City and for Sergio Aguero, who is a big player for them.

"There are no words needed from me about the achievements of this guy, he is a world-class player. But don't forget, we compete in three competitions with Manchester City so I will never speak about their players and talk about a player's future.

"It's their player and I expect they do the same with our players. We are rivals and, as I said, there are no words needed from me to praise Sergio Aguero's career. It is outstanding and speaks for itself. And it's not finished yet.

"He is still a player for City and will still help them to achieve their goals, which is a big collision to our goals because we are following the same things."
