    IT'S BEN GREAT

    Chelsea star Ben Chilwell claimed that the Champions League triumph is exactly why he decided to join the Blues last summer.

    Chilwell told Sky Sports: "We fought so hard today.

    "We knew it would be a tough game. The second half… we fought for our lives to get to this moment, to have this feeling.

    "This is what I came to Chelsea for. It's a dream come true"

    EMPEROR CESAR

    Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta considers Saturday's triumph a special moment in his career as he joined the Blues just a few months after their first Champions League trophy in 2012.

    Azpilicueta told Sky Sports: "This means a lot.

    "I came here in 2012 after the Champions League win and of course I wanted to repeat that.

    "Tonight it's just amazing. My family is here and it's just a special day"

    KAI SPIRITS

    Chelsea star Kai Havertz scored the winner in the Champions League Final and was over the moon after the final whistle.

    Havertz told Sky Sports: "I don't know what to say, it's an incredible feeling. We deserved it and now we celebrate.

    "I waited a long time [to score in the Champions League], and now I've done it.

    "I just want to thank my family, my parents, my brother, my sister, my grandmother, my girlfriend.

    "They're here in the stadium. I worked 15 years for that moment and now it's happened"

    SAVAGE AS EVRA

    Manchester United legend Patrice Evra poked fun at Manchester City after the Champions League Final.

    City couldn't win their first ever major European title as they lost 1-0 to Chelsea following Kai Havertz’s winner.

    Evra took a swipe at United’s rivals as he shared a humorous image joking about the Citizens’ lack of European trophies.

    The former left-back tweeted:

    TUCHEL REACTION

    Thomas Tuchel led Chelsea to their second Champions League triumph thanks to a 1-0 victory over Manchester City in the final.

    Kai Havertz scored the winner and capped an incredible maiden season for Tuchel.

    The former Paris Saint-Germain and Borussia Dortmund boss became the third consecutive German manager to win the European title.

    Here's what he had to say:

    AGUER-GO

    Manchester City hero Sergio Aguero is set to undergo his medical at Barcelona in the next few hours.

    That is according to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, who claims that Aguero has already put pen to paper on a two-year contract with Barca.

    The Argentina international played his last ever game with the Citizens on Saturday's Champions League Final against Chelsea.

    The striker’s former City team-mate Eric Garcia is set to join him at the Nou Camp.

    Liverpool midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum will follow in the next few days

    TUCH-ING BASE

    Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has confirmed that Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel is going to sign a brand new deal with the club after winning the Champions League trophy.

    Tuchel led the Blues to a famous 1-0 win over Manchester City in the final and, according to The Guardian, he is set to extend his existing contract by another year at Stamford Bridge.

    Romano tweeted: “Thomas Tuchel will meet Chelsea board in the next days to sign a new contract, confirmed. Just a matter of time.

    “He’s already planning for new signings together with the club. Blue circle #CFC

    The agreement will be completed until June 2023 + option for one more season”

    DE BRUYNE INJURY

    Manchester City talisman Kevin De Bruyne suffered a heavy injury during the Champions League Final and had to be substituted.

    De Bruyne clashed with Chelsea ace Antonio Rudiger close to the hour-mark and limped off the pitch with an apparent head injury, which also gave him a black eye.

    There is still no update on his condition but last night’s collision raises some significant questions regarding the attacking midfielder’s fitness ahead of Euro 2020.

    Belgium boss Roberto Martinez will be counting a lot on the 29-year-old in the country’s bid to win the trophy in the summer

    PERFECT TUCH

    Chelsea's Champions League celebrations obviously continued backstage.

    Blues boss Thomas Tuchel took it all in with a bottle of champagne he brought to the dressing room.

    Tuchel popped the bottle and sprayed all of his players who were on cloud nine after beating Manchester City 1-0 in Porto.

    Check out the scenes from the west Londoners' lock room:

    TWO-TIME CHAMPS

    Chelsea enjoyed a historic Champions League triumph on Saturday as they beat Manchester City in the final.

    The Blues defeated Pep Guardiola's favourites thanks to Kai Havertz's winner after 42 minutes.

    This marked the west Londoners' second European title, nine years after beating Bayern Munich in Germany.

    City's long wait for a European title continues…

    BALS OF STEAL

    Journalist Guillem Balague has launched a passionate defence of Pep Guardiola, condemning the Man City manager's critics for only caring about results.

    Guardiola came in for deep criticism after choosing to start the game without a holding midfielder and playing out-of-form Raheem Sterling from the start.
