Tuchel makes striker decision

Chelsea youngster Mason Burstow is not set to be loaned out next season, according to The Athletic. The 18-year-old striker signed for the Blues earlier in the season from Charlton Athletic, though he was immediately loaned back out until the end of the season.

He made his debut for the west Londoners in the Development Squad's final game of the season, steering Chelsea clear of relegation from the Premier League 2. Burstow scored six goals for the Addicks this season.

United set to spoil Chelsea's summer plans

Chelsea look set to lose out on long-term transfer target Borna Sosa in the summer transfer window. Erik ten Hag is keen to make the Stuttgart defender his first Manchester United signing, according to German outlet Kicker.

The Croatia international has reportedly continued to court the interest of the Blues and United. Thomas Tuchel's side locked horns with Inter Milan for Sosa at the end of the January transfer window, according to Sky Sports Germany.

But, a deal failed to materialise for the £25.6 million-rated defender. Though, Chelsea scouts have watched the Croatian this season to monitor his progress, football.london understands.

Right now, Chelsea can only watch due to sanctions and will be hoping for the takeover to be officially confirmed sooner rather than later so they don't miss out on more targets.

Chelsea to be affected by new Champions League format

The Champions League is set to undergo a controversial makeover despite incredible uproar among fanbases and domestic leagues. The original proposal for the revamped format that starts in the 2024/25 season would have given teams like Arsenal – clubs that failed to qualify for European competitions via their league finish.

Europe's leading sides and UEFA have come together and are set to agree on a comprise, according to The Athletic. The report claims that in Madrid on Monday, senior representatives from UEFA met at a meeting of the European Club Association's (ECA) board and heard proposals to implement a diluted version of the original plan.

The Athletic claim that the general consensus was that now only one season would be considered, though, of course, with historical records still in mind. The report adds that it plans to also use UEFA's country coefficient instead of club ranking — which is currently in place to allocate places in its competitions to its member associations.

The final plan is set to be discussed over two additional meetings on Tuesday before UEFA members congregate in Vienna on Wednesday for their annual congress. The Athletic add, though, that it may wait until the end of May to be officially confirmed.
