THOMAS TUCHEL is set to sign a new Chelsea contract next week fresh off the back of his Champions League triumph.
The Blues beat Premier League champions and heavy favourites Manchester City in Porto on Saturday night.
But it was a goal from Kai Havertz which sealed the win and brought the Big Ears back to West London.
According to the Guardian, Chelsea plan to give the German a new two-year contract with an option for a further year.
And Tuchel is already planning the next steps in the transfer market.
Reputable Italian Journalist Fabrizio Romano added: “Thomas Tuchel will meet Chelsea board in the next days to sign a new contract, confirmed.
“Just a matter of time. He’s already planning for new signings together with the club.”
Tuchel joined the club back in January on an 18-month deal, replacing club legend Frank Lampard.
And the 47-year-old met his boss Roman Abramovich for the first time yesterday.
He said: “I am not even 100 per cent sure maybe I have already a new contract now.

“My manager said something about it. Let’s check this first.
“I spoke to the owner right now on the pitch (Roman Abramovich). It was the best moment for the first meeting.
“It can only get worse! We will speak tomorrow. We will speak later.
“I will stay hungry for the next title. My desire is for more victories and to grow as a coach.
“It would be nice to meet him a bit closer. We are in contact. Now it’s nice to meet him.”
And Tuchel is already thinking about the next title and demands to be a part of it.
He continued: “It’s about the next one. It is the time to celebrate for a few days and to let it sink in. Nobody wants to rest.
“I want the next one and I want the next success and the next title. I want to be a part of it and I demand to be a part of it. Make no mistake.
“It’s a huge experience and a huge success. We all will profit from that experience.
“We will use it to stay hungry and to grow and evolve. It’s a huge step to arrive in the final and an even bigger one to fight your way through.
“Man City was a strong opponent. We knew it was a top-level performance. We needed a strong bond today to win this match.”
