Chelsea are in negotiations with Mauricio Pochettino to become their new permanent manager, as they seek a replacement for interim manager Frank Lampard. Pochettino, who most recently managed Paris St-Germain, had previously turned down an initial approach from Chelsea. However, negotiations have resumed and the club is willing to give Pochettino more control as he looks for a role that allows him to have an impact beyond selecting the first team. It is unclear whether Pochettino will take over immediately or whether Lampard will remain in charge until the end of the season. Chelsea had previously held talks with other candidates, including former Bayern Munich boss Julian Naglesmann and former Spain and Barcelona manager Luis Enrique. Pochettino managed Tottenham for five years and led them to the 2019 Champions League final, but was sacked in November 2019.
