Thomas Tuchel says a new two-year deal will be just part of a ‘fantastic beginning’ at Chelsea.
The Blues’ head coach held talks with Roman Abramovich hours after leaving celebrations to mark winning the Champions League.
Tuchel said: “If we really want to build something I’m all in, I can tell you. And I’m happy to talk about it and discuss it. If our beliefs match, we go from there.
“We have to check with the owner if this is his plan, I think it’s possible.
“I think I have a clause that makes my contract a bit longer if I win the League or the Champions League.
“I’m not 100 per cent sure but my manager said it weeks ago, I didn’t check. I said, ‘Let’s talk when it’s the case’.
“Even if we have a longer contract, there are no doubts I want to stay and it’s not the most important thing.
“I’m very happy to be here, it’s a fantastic beginning and we go now for the next one.”
Meanwhile, Tottenham could be tempted to part ways with Harry Kane if Manchester City offer Gabriel Jesus plus cash, according to reports.
Spurs chairman Daniel Levy will try and get the best deal possible for Kane should any team try and buy him this summer.
But according to the Daily Star, Spurs have an interest in Brazilian striker Jesus – opening up the possibility of a cash-plus-swap deal for Kane.
Jesus is valued at £70million and if City chuck in a similar amount as well, Tottenham could be tempted to sell.
And finally, Pep Guardiola admits he is ready for a break as he heads back to see his family in Barcelona this week.
It has been a lengthy and demanding season for his Manchester City side -chasing the Quadruple for so long meant he has not seen some of his nearest and dearest since November.
After an outstanding campaign ended on a disappointing note in Portugal, he said: “I want to go home and be with my family.
“It’s been a long time since I’ve seen them.
“After that I’ll come back to the club. It’s going to be the best club in the world for the next few years.
“I want to congratulate my players on an exceptional season and on the game they played on Saturday.”
