Chelsea makes a bid

According to the Telegraph, an offer has been made to Pochettino in general terms, and Chelsea is hopeful that the details of the trade will be agreed upon.

Mauricio Pochettino shares two Instagram clues

Kyle Walker challenges Pep Guardiola and Mauricio Pochettino
Kyle Walker, a Manchester City player, has already advised Chelsea why they must hire Mauricio Pochettino as their next manager. Pochettino coached the England international at Tottenham Hotspur before transferring to the Etihad Stadium.
Walker succeeded under Pochettino before transferring to City, where he has improved even more under Pep Guardiola’s tutelage. When asked who he believes is the finest manager he has ever played under, the City defender told the Official Manchester City Podcast: “It’s between [Mauricio] Pochettino and Pep [Guardiola.”I believe Pep has improved my game and knowledge of wasting energy when it is unnecessary. “I started as a wing-back and am now in a back three.”Would I have been able to accomplish it with England if I had still been under Pochettino’s management? No, I’d have been too aggressive.”
Despite a series of encouraging meetings between the two sides, sources have told Football. London that there is still nothing to disclose regarding an impending agreement between Chelsea and Pochettino.
Pochettino has used social media to keep supporters up to speed on his movements and activities, but not in the way that fans would like. Pochettino shared a photo of himself walking his Rhodesian ridgeback dog, Sana Mandela, on his Instagram account.
The dog has its own Instagram account, where it was seen on the beach with the caption: “Morning walk [sunshine emoji] with Sansa. [red heart emoji].”
Although it is not stated, the photograph looks to correspond with rumors of discussions with Chelsea in Barcelona. Pochettino, who used to coach Espanyol, a city team, has been known to spend time in Catalonia, which, incidentally, has plenty of beaches!
Todd Boehly has been given a schedule for Mauricio Pochettino’s announcement.
The Blues have now been given a timetable for Pochettino’s possible appointment as manager at Stamford Bridge. No announcement will likely be made ahead of Chelsea’s critical Premier League match against Arsenal on Tuesday night, while some rumors have speculated that the former Tottenham Hotspur manager may be present at the Emirates Stadium.
While confirmation is unlikely to arrive before Tuesday, contract specifics might be addressed behind closed doors. Frank Lampard will be hoping for his first win as Chelsea’s caretaker manager after returning to the club on Tuesday, although a permanent successor for Potter appears to be nearing completion.
Chelsea officials will meet in Los Angeles as a job offer is being drafted.
According to The Times, Mauricio Pochettino might be handed the Chelsea post by Saturday night, as top executives from the West London club are expected to meet in Los Angeles to make a final decision on the head coach vacancy.
Todd Boehly and Behdad Eghbali, the co-owners, are desperate to get this choice right after Potter’s tenure failed. The process has been led by Chelsea’s co-sporting directors, Paul Winstanley and Laurence Stewart, with assistance from Boehly and Eghbali.
A meeting has been arranged for today (Saturday, April 29) in Los Angeles, to reach an agreement on the appointment before making a contractual offer. Pochettino is not represented by an agency and is representing himself in the negotiations.
He has had several contacts with the recruiting team, including advanced discussions about his backroom personnel and alterations to the squad this summer.
Pochettino makes a demand on Chelsea
According to The Daily Mail, if Pochettino is offered the job at Chelsea, he wants assistant Jesus Perez and goalie coach Toni Jimenez with him. The Argentine also wants his eldest son Sebastiano, who served on his staff at Tottenham Hotspur and Paris Saint-Germain.
He also wants to bring in Steve Hitchen, who was previously the top scout at Tottenham Hotspur.
The most recent agreement
Despite optimism that a deal may be reached between Chelsea and Mauricio Pochettino, there is still no agreement in place, according to Sport. London is aware. Any agreement for Pochettino to take over at Chelsea is expected to happen after the season, despite mounting pressure on Frank Lampard’s stay after going winless in his first five games.
