Chelsea head coach Antonio Conte’s future at the club is in doubt, and many believe that the former Juventus manager will part ways with the club this summer.
The blues have been linked with a number of candidates. They are targeting Maxi Allegri, Leonardo Jardim, Mauricio Sarri and Luis Enrique.
Chelsea are exploring different options this summer and one of those options is to change the clubs vision, which could see them employing a younger coach who does not possess the necessary trophies in their cabinet yet.
The latest reports suggest that a man who could fit such a bill is current Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino. Chelsea have him on a shortlist of options to replace Conte, according to respected journalist Matt Law of the Telegraph.
Pochettino is high up the list of names being considered currently, even though it looks near impossible that he would make that move across the capital. He is also being linked with a move to Real Madrid, as he has allegedly grown frustrated with his sides season, and has asked for further signings if he is to achieve winning trophies.
I understand that former Barcelona manager Luis Enrique remains Roman Abramovich’s first choice, however, informal talks stalled due to the Spaniards high wage demands.
Although Enrique still remains in the fold, as does Allegri, it would appear that the blues could look to the impressive Mauricio Sarri of Napoli, or even Monaco’s Leonardo Jardim, should they decide to take a new approach in hiring managers and gain some stability.
