Former Barcelona coach Luis Enrique will head Chelsea, the Le Parisien newspaper said. The author’s report reveals that the Spaniard is in advanced negotiations with Marina Granovska, to which Roman Abramovich relies to bring things to a successful end.
Luis Enrique is enthusiastic about the opportunity to work in England and has therefore refused an offer from Paris Saint-Germain. In recent months, he has gone to English lessons to make sure he has no problems communicating with players after moving to Stamford Bridge. Enrique has reduced his initial salary requirements, but has received guarantees from Abramovich’s right hand that he will have enough funds for a strong selection.
One thing is for sure – Antonio Conte will leave Chelsea after the season. The Italian made the championship last year, but since then his relationship with management has worsened and the results in the current season are far below expectations.
