Explosive Chelsea manager release the most important twist as former boss offered big money to replace Mauricio Pochettino

Co-owner of Chelsea Todd Boehly is prepared to throw caution to the wind when taking over for Mauricio Pochettino this summer; he may very well bring Antonio Conte back to the team, according to some reports.

Before the match on April 23 against London rivals Arsenal, Pochettino was under pressure, but Chelsea appeared determined to stick with him. The fact that the Blues had advanced to the League Cup final and the FA Cup semifinals gave them hope that he could turn things around the following season.

But all that was altered by Mikel Arteta’s team’s merciless 5-0 thrashing. It proved once more how far Chelsea is from contending with Manchester City, Arsenal, and Liverpool for Premier League titles in the future.

Chelsea believes there are other excellent managers who could help expedite the club’s ambitious project, but they are hesitant to fire another coach and have to begin a new managerial era (again).

In fact, sources told TEAMtalk on April 24 that Pochettino is considered a “dead man walking” by some at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea has been connected to a spectacular transfer for former manager Jose Mourinho. However, with Conte now in the running, he is not the only former Chelsea manager being linked to the position.

La Repubblica, an Italian publication, claims that Boehly is “dreaming big” for the summer and intends to make an impression with his next managerial acquisition.

In order to persuade Conte to make an incredible comeback to West London, the American billionaire is prepared to “do everything.” This includes a “significant offer,” which most likely entails a massive salary proposal that is significantly higher than Pochettino’s current compensation.

Serie A powerhouses Napoli and AC Milan are also keeping an eye on Conte’s circumstances, so Chelsea is not the only team that admires him.

Following his mutually agreed-upon departure from Tottenham Hotspur in March 2023, the 54-year-old has been a free agent.

Given his history there, Conte returning to Chelsea would undoubtedly be a dramatic turn of events. He made his Stamford Bridge debut in July of 2016 and had an incredible first season, leading Chelsea to the Premier League title and the FA Cup final, where they were defeated by Arsenal.

Chelsea won the FA Cup under Conte’s leadership in the 2017–18 campaign, but they finished fifth in the standings and were not invited to the Champions League. The Blues then fired Conte and brought in fellow countryman Maurizio Sarri in his place.

By switching the team’s formation to a 3-4-3 during his first season, Conte notably got Chelsea firing again. It would be intriguing to observe how Chelsea’s young players of today would respond to his approach.

However, considering that the former midfield player is eager to win titles immediately, he might grow impatient with the length of time it takes the Chelsea youth to blossom into elite players.
