Chelsea have confirmed that fans will get the chance to see the Champions League trophy “in the near future” after Thomas Tuchel’s victorious team returned to England.

The Blues turned a season of turmoil into the ultimate triumph as Kai Havertz's ice-cool finish sunk Manchester City 1-0 to swipe Champions League glory in Porto.

Mason Mount's inch-perfect assist stunned domestic double-winners City at the Estadio do Dragao, as Chelsea claimed their second Champions League title to etch boss Thomas Tuchel's name into the Stamford Bridge annals.

In just 124 days Tuchel has transformed Frank Lampard's muddled men into mean tactical machines - and champions of Europe.

Chelsea were able to celebrate their success with thousands of fans at Estadio Do Dragao in Porto, but due to coronavirus protocols in England, a London parade is off the table.

The team flew back to the UK on Sunday afternoon and returned to the club’s Cobham training ground before leaving to spend time with their families.
