Next Chelsea manager: Title-winning coach ready to accept job after positive talks with Blues board

After splitting from Mauricio Pochettino, Chelsea is looking for a new manager and has compiled a shortlist of intriguing candidates.

On Friday, TEAMtalk exclusively disclosed that the Blues’ hierarchy is considering Enzo Maresca, Kieran McKenna, Roberto de Zerbi, and Ruben Amorim.

All four of those applicants may have interviews with Chelsea in the next few days as they intensify their search for a new manager, according to our sources.

Thomas Frank, the Brentford manager, is rumored to have had “several rounds of discussions” with the London club.

Reputable reporter Fabrizio Romano claims that Maresca is keen to take the position at Stamford Bridge and has spoken with Chelsea.

This season, he guided Leicester City to the Championship title, guaranteeing their first-ever promotion back to the Premier League.

Although the Foxes would undoubtedly be sad to lose their manager before the start of their premier league campaign, sources suggest that the coach would find it difficult to decline the Chelsea position.

Enzo Maresca is expected to join Chelsea.
Romano has given an update on Maresca’s connections to the Chelsea position, indicating that he would accept the opportunity to take over the Stamford Bridge bench the following season without hesitation.

Although he has been offered the chance to manage Sevilla, he would prefer to remain at Leicester rather than join the Spanish team.

Romano posted on X, “Enzo Maresca prefers the Premier League over any other league despite approaches from Sevilla, already rejected.”

“After recent talks, he is awaiting Chelsea’s decision. His release clause is worth approximately €10 million following his promotion. Leicester City is likewise anticipating that.

Chelsea is giving Maresca serious consideration. The Blues “don’t seem to care” that he would be a “underwhelming” appointment for the fans, according to our sources.

Maresca is a desirable addition to Chelsea due to his style of play, his accomplishments with Leicester, and the mentality he acquired from studying under Pep Guardiola.

The choice of Chelsea’s next manager will likely come soon, and whoever is chosen will be expected to bring championships and success back to Stamford Bridge.

In order to select a new manager and give themselves time to prepare for the forthcoming season, Leicester will also want to know the outcome of their manager’s situation as soon as possible.
