Former Paris Saint-Germain and Tottenham head coach, Mauricio Pochettino has reportedly agreed on terms with the Premier League giants, Chelsea to become their new coach. The Blues have been in talks and negotiations with the former Tottenham and Paris Saint-Germain manager and are expected to bring him to Stamford Bridge ahead of the next season.
The 51-year-old Argentine, who is set to return to Premier League, is likely to take over from the caretaker manager Frank Lampard at the end of this season. He was sacked by Chelsea's London rivals Spurs in November 2019. Reports revealed that he has accepted the conditions for the club and will expectedly sign a long-term contract with them after a few negotiations.

Chelsea have had a devastating 2022-23 season and hired four managers thus far along with a massive expenditure on player signings. The Blues sacked Thomas Tuchel before the start of this season and later replaced him with Graham Potter, who was also released in April. Bruno Saltor, Potter's assistant, also managed the team in an interim capacity and was replaced by the current interim coach Frank Lampard.
With several names being associated with the Blues, it seems that Pochettino has been finalised as the coach of the team, as per football insider Fabrizio Romano. While the Argentine coach has agreed to all conditions and terms with Chelsea, a written is likely to be signed soon. Pochettino has been out of work since his sacking by PSG last summer after being in charge for 18 months and leading the team to the Ligue 1 title in 2022 and the French Cup a year before.

The Argentine would face the difficult task of restoring the fortunes of Chelsea as they have already spent £600 million since Boehly and Clearlake Capital completed their takeover in May 2022 to finish in the bottom half of the Premier League. They are currently occupying the 11th spot with three games to play after a 2-2 draw at Nottingham Forest on Saturday.
