Chelsea could make the big announcement by tomorrow after a Los Angeles meeting today which is pointing to the fact that Pochettino is the right man for the job.
It’s been a week since he moved clear at the front of the pack, and if anything it’s been a surprisingly long process to get from that to a formal offer. According to this report, senior figures at Chelsea are meeting in LA in the next 24 hours to make a final decision on whether he is the man to go with.
Pochettino has been out of working since being sacked by PSG last summer, and looks like he’s happy to accept a good offer from the Blues.
Paul Winstanley and Laurence Stewart were appointed as Chelsea’s sporting directors after Graham Potter’s appointment, so this is their first chance to choose a manager. It seems they’ve plumped for Poch, and now it’s just down the owners to approve their decision.
