Thomas Tuchel has denied reports he is on the verge of signing an extension with Chelsea.

Chelsea will play Real Madrid in the second leg of their Champions League semifinal tie on Wednesday.

Tuchel signed an 18-month deal in February to replace Frank Lampard. 

Tuchel won 15 of his 23 games since taking charge but when asked if contract talks had begun, Tuchel replied: "No, there is no time. There is no time and no need for this right now."
