Thomas Tuchel’s Paris Saint-Germain experience could have implications for Chelsea defender Levi Colwill

Given that Thomas Tuchel is looking to add defensive reinforcements this summer, Levi Colwill’s future at Chelsea is becoming more and more dubious. The 19-year-old defender’s potential departure from Stamford Bridge has received a lot of attention after an extraordinarily strong season-long loan at Huddersfield Town. The Cobham product, who sees his contract with the west Londoners expire in 2025, featured 29 times for the Terriers in the Championship, booking Carlos Corberán’s side a raffle ticket for promotion into the top-flight. Unfortunately for Colwill, Huddersfield failed to pass the decisive test, but Chelsea is reportedly quite pleased with his progress. Football.london is aware that Tuchel will evaluate him during the preseason. But because so many Premier League clubs are interested in Colwill, the Blues manager is feeling increasing pressure to decide Colwill’s future as soon as possible. A £60 million Raphinha transfer boost for Chelsea comes as Todd Boehly sets a new Barcelona deadline. The young player will want to leave Stamford Bridge before the window slams shut, The Athletic reports, if Chelsea signs one more defender this summer. The pessimist in Colwill’s group would interpret Tuchel’s open discussion with Moussa Diaby three years ago at Paris Saint-Germain as a cautionary tale, while the optimist will see a path to the first team. After gaining experience in the PSG system, Diaby was regarded as one of Europe’s most exciting prospects in 2019. He was seen as the “next great thing” for the French behemoth, despite fierce competition from Kylian Mbappe and Neymar for crucial playing time. And Diaby was convinced to quit PSG after speaking with Tuchel. At his formal introduction as a Bayer Leverkusen player, the France international referred to Chelsea manager as: “He pushed me to join Leverkusen and transfer to the Bundesliga. He assured me that I would make a wise choice and gain a lot of knowledge there.” Many Blues supporters are thrilled with Colwill’s development and want to see the young player succeed in the first squad, but Tuchel’s conversation with Diaby could be a huge setback. This season, the defender has a lot to offer the west Londoners, but if the German has another talk of the same nature, he might suffer the same fate and be kicked out of his old team.
