According to talkSPORT Antonio Conte has admitted he may not be Chelsea head coach next season if his side fail to qualify for the Champions League, and they say the Stamford Bridge club have already identified their number one target to replace the Italian.

The Sun are reporting that the Blues want Mauricio Pochettino to take charge in West London, with Chelsea’s billionaire owner Roman Abramovich extremely impressed by the Argentines work at Tottenham.

Daniel Levy is of course expected to block any approach from Chelsea – or any club – for the highly rated Pochettino, who will today become the longest-serving Tottenham coach in terms of Premier League games managed.

However it does look that Conte’s time at Chelsea is done and if does indeed depart this summer, it is expected Abramovich and his board of advisors make a tentative approach for Pochettino to discover if there is any chance of tempting him away from north London.

Pochettino is seemingly commited to Spurs and takes his team to Stamford Bridge today hoping to guide Spurs to a first victory at the stadium since 1990 and all this is just rumour. Do you guys think that Pochettino might be tempted to swap us for them? Let us know your thoughts

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. LoL

    Spurs won’t do business with Chelsea, and Chelsea won’t do business with Spurs.

    Pochettino has stated categorically that he would never manage a club that were bitter rivals to a club he was closely connected to either as a player or manager – and that includes Barcelona due to his Espanyol days.

    But…I suppose… it’s Chelsea Spurs on Sunday so suddenly, all week, Chelsea want Alderweireld and Pochettino – and are in pole position to get them.

    = ???

  2. You’ve just got to laugh at the sun reporter masquerading as a professional journalist. To work for the sun newspaper, means that the better quality papers have rejected them.
