EXCLUSIVE Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel, 48, has been dating his new girlfriend, 35, for two months


Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has been dating his new Brazilian girlfriend for two months, MailOnline can exclusively reveal.

The Champions League winner, 48, who was pictured with Natalie Max, 35, on a boat in Sardinia, has been seeing the glamorous mother-of-two since May after his divorce to ex-wife Sissi, 46, was finalised.

According to a close friend of Natalie’s the new couple are ‘very happy’ and have been spending all their time together, with the business owner jetting to Italy to join Thomas on their first romantic holiday.

A source told MailOnline: ‘Tuchel and Natalie are smitten with each other.

‘They’ve been dating since May and things are already getting serious between them.

‘Natalie flew to Sardinia to join Thomas on their first holiday and they’ve been spending a lot of quality time together in west London, where she lives with her two children and dog.

‘Tuchel is really lovely and has made Natalie’s friends feel welcome, he’s definitely in this for the long-haul.’

It is thought the new couple’s romanced blossomed during dates at an Italian restaurant in west London.

Natalie, who has two daughters and lives at a three-story property in Knightsbridge, London, worth several million.

The Brazilian, who resides a stone’s throw away from Harrods, is due back from her holiday at the end of the week.

Tuchel and Natalie have been seen holding hands on a romantic boat trip at sunset.

Natalie also enjoyed a dip in the Mediterranean sea before the loved-up pair went back to their £20,000-a-night private villa.

It was revealed in April that Tuchel had split from his former journalist wife following 13 years of marriage.

A source told the Mail On Sunday that the ex-couple ‘tried to avoid splitting but in the end, there was no other way.’

Last Wednesday, in a written order, Mr. Justice Mostyn said he was satisfied that Tuchel had behaved in such a way that Mrs. Tuchel could not reasonably be expected to stay with him.

He was satisfied the marriage had broken down irretrievably.

The former couple are believed to have reached a multi-million-pound settlement ahead of a decree absolute, expected in the next six weeks.

The townhouse where Ms Max lives is in one of London’s most expensive districts, where the super-rich fill the streets with Ferraris, Bentleys and Rolls Royces.

Hyde Park is just around the corner, as is Kensington Palace and the Royal Albert Hall while Chelsea’s Stamford Bridge ground is just one and half miles away.

Several other mega-wealthy celebrities reside nearby including Tamara Ecclestone, who lives in a 57-room mansion less than a mile away
