The Premier League giants Chelsea are planning an approach for their EPL rivals Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino if Italian boss Antonio Conte depart from the club, according to a shock reports in the British media.
Italian coach Conte is expected to depart from Stamford Bridge after Saturday’s FA Cup final versus Manchester United after a poor defence of the title Antonio helped the club win in his debut season at the club.
The Blues’ failure to qualify for the Champions League is possible to see Conte move on – and on Sky Sports News understands the club are already making strategies to approach Spurs about Pochettino.
High-profile names such as Serie A giants Napoli coach Maurizio Sarri and former Barcelona manager Luis Enrique have both been connected with the post, but Sky Sports believes it is Mauricio Pochettino for whom the club would most like to appoint.
Any approach for the Argentine boss will obviously be met with big disregard by Tottenham Hotspur, who under the Mauricio finished third in this campaign and once more sealed a return to the Champions League.
