According to Santos, the Italy international has no intention of dumping the Blues this summer.

Santos divulged that the ex-Napoli star has an active deal with the Thomas Tuchl-tutored side, and the plan is actually to negotiate a new contract.

"Chelsea are the priority," Santos told Tuttomercatoweb per Metro UK.
"His contract will expire in 2023, I think we will talk about the renewal from September," he added.

The development will come as a major boost for Chelsea, especially after a number of first-team players dumped the club this summer.

Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen top the list of high-profile players who have quit, with Romelu Lukaku also recently sealing a return to Inter Milan on loan.

Earlier, Sports Brief reported Chelsea forward Christian Pulisic has reportedly informed the club that he has no desire to leave despite the Blues' attempts to sell him this summer.

The Blues are looking to offload Christian Pulisic after they reportedly included him in a deal involving Juve's Matthijs de Ligt.

However, the former Borussia Dortmund star is said to be unwilling to quit Stamford Bridge and has told Chelsea chiefs as much.

Pulisic endured a frustrating season last term as Thomas Tuchel limited him to just 13 Premier League appearances.
