The Blues had a bad preseason as they struggled to make an impact on the pitch. The Stanford bridge has failed to convince its targets to join them and they have only signed two players since the start of the transfer window.
And the London club has a plan that could save the manager next season and make him be able to compete for the Premier League title.
According to a report, Chelsea planning to go for Barcelona star Frenkie De Jong who could be forced to leave the Camp Nou this summer as a precaution of avoiding La Liga's financial fair play rule.
Manager Thomas Tuchel is a big admirer of De Jong and with the Dutch preferring to move to Champions League Club, Chelsea looks to be a possible destination if he leaves this summer.
De Jong is the number one target for Manchester United and the Old Trafford side isn't giving up on the attempts to sign him and they are still pushing to convince the midfielder to join Erik Ten Hag's side.
