Chelsea Sets Deadline for Manager Decision as Talks with Pochettino Continue and Mourinho Responds.

After Graham Potter’s project was cut short, the next Chelsea manager will be hoping for more time in the dugout than the 47-year-old. Chelsea appear to have taken a big step towards ultimately finding a permanent replacement to Graham Potter. The Blues have been prominently associated with a number of managers in recent months, and it appears that the search may be coming to a conclusion shortly.

Both Julian Nagelsmann and Luis Enrique were formerly widely associated with the Stamford Bridge job, but they’ve now pulled out, leaving Mauricio Pochettino unopposed. Jose Mourinho and Carlo Ancelotti were also named, although they have both ruled themselves out.

According to Spylax Media, the west Londoners have held many rounds of ‘good talks’ with Pochettino, with Todd Boehly hopeful of finding a successor for Frank Lampard before the summer. While Chelsea have yet to complete an agreement with the former Tottenham manager, there is optimism that he will be in charge for next season.

As the search for a new boss continues, a line has been drawn in the sand. According to The Athletic, a final decision will be made in the coming days, with an announcement to ‘come in due course’.

According to the article, Pochettino is a’strong favourite’ for the role at Chelsea, which will shatter the hearts of those who favoured Jose Mourinho instead. To make matters worse, the Roma manager has reportedly ruled out a return to west London as he enters the final year of his contract in the Italian city.

According to RMC Sport, Paris Saint-Germain’s director of football, Luis Campos, has spoken with Mourinho’s agent, Jorge Mendes, about a prospective move to Les Parc des Princes – and he’s reported to be keen. According to the story, after Potter was fired, the Portuguese manager turned down an offer from Chelsea.

While he may only have a year left on his contract with Roma, Mourinho dismissed the uncertainties surrounding his future. When asked about his future, Mourinho, 60, stated, “I don’t talk to friends, comrades, or journalists.”

“If a few months ago our CEO [Pietro] Berardi said he was sure I would stay, that is his interpretation. If this time Mr. Zazzaroni [a journalist] said what he said is an interpretation of him, I’m not talking to anyone

“The situation is clear, from a contractual point of view I still have one year on my contract. Football is football, sometimes contracts aren’t the most important thing. All good, all calm, the next one is always the most important game.”
