Chelsea agree terms with Mauricio Pochettino to take over as manager | chelsea

Mauricio Pochettino has agreed to become Chelsea’s new head coach after lengthy talks with the Stamford Bridge club.

Chelsea have been on the hunt for a new manager since Graham Potter was sacked last month. Pochettino will be the third permanent manager to work under Todd Boehly-Clearlake’s capital ownership since they bought the club last year. Nothing has been signed yet but confirmation of the Argentine’s appointment is expected soon.

Pochettino, out of work since leaving Paris Saint-Germain last summer, became the favorite after Chelsea held talks with former Barcelona and Spain coach Luis Enrique and sacked Julian Nagelsmann by Bayern Munich in March.

The former Tottenham manager will need patience as Chelsea look to rebuild after a difficult season. The 51-year-old will inherit a swollen squad at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea, who will not be in Europe next season, have spent almost £600million on new signings over the past year. They will have to sell players this summer.

Chelsea signed Potter after sacking Thomas Tuchel – now Nagelsmann’s successor at Bayern – in September. Potter has struggled to make his presence felt and Chelsea, who face the prospect of finishing in the bottom half, ended up installing Frank Lampard as caretaker head coach last month. Lampard lost their first six games before winning at Bournemouth last weekend and then drawing at home to Nottingham Forest on Saturday.
