According to information from Marca on Monday, Chelsea FC have chosen Mauricio Pochettino to take charge of the team. The Spanish media adds that an agreement between the two parties is imminent.

After Graham Potter’s dismissal on April 2, Frank Lampard temporarily returned to the Chelsea bench. However, the English technician failed to reverse the trend and the London team continued to accumulate bad results.

The management of the Blues therefore no longer wants to wait until the end of the season to find its new head coach. Several names have also popped up, such as Luis Enrique, Zinedine Zidane or Julian Nagelsmann, recently sacked from Bayern Munich.

Finally, the London club found its man for the job according to information from Marca.

The Madrid media said, it is Mauricio Pochettino, former coach of PSG and Tottenham, who will definitely take the reins of Chelsea FC.

The two parties are also close to an agreement and there are only a few details left to settle, concerning the Argentinian staff in particular. The questions relating to his contract or his remuneration have already been settled.

For his part, Pochettino has only one requirement: the assurance that he will be supported by his management to bring the Blues back to the top in England next season.

The formalization should take place in the coming days.
