Chelsea Board Fumes Over Last-Minute Transfer Request Ahead of Crucial Aston Villa Match

Anthony Barry, Chelsea’s highly rated coach, has reportedly asked to leave the club to join Thomas Tuchel at Bayern Munich ahead of the Blues’ Premier League clash with Aston Villa.

According to BILD, following Tuchel’s appointment at Bayern, Chelsea coach Barry would like to join him at the Allianz. According to the report, Chelsea is demanding compensation and the two clubs are currently in talks.

Along with his Chelsea duties, Barry, 36, has taken on a part-time coaching role with the Portugal national team. He was first hired at the Premier League giants by former head coach Frank Lampard. Tuchel was so impressed with his level and quality of coaching while working with him that he was desperate to reunite after taking the job at Bayern last week.

The public acknowledgment that Barry is a target for the German side, however, has enraged the powers that be at Chelsea, according to The Telegraph. Tuchel’s team at Bayern Munich is also expected to include Zsolt Low and Arno Michels, who both left Chelsea at the same time as the former Borussia Dortmund manager.

Current Chelsea manager Graham Potter will not want any distractions ahead of this weekend’s league match against Villa, but he now faces the possibility of losing a top coach from his backroom team. The Blues will face Unai Emery’s side on Saturday, April 1 at 5:30 p.m., live on Sky Sports.

Chelsea are unbeaten in their last four games in all competitions, having defeated Leeds United and Leicester City in the two games preceding their crucial Champions League victory over Dortmund.

Villa are also unbeaten in their last four games, with victories over struggling sides Everton, Crystal Palace, and Bournemouth.
