Chelsea want Mauricio Pochettino to replace Antonio Conte

Mauricio Pochettino

It's looking increasingly likely that this weekend's FA Cup final will be Antonio Conte's final game as Chelsea boss and, if that is the case, Blues owner Roman Abramovich is eager to replace the Italian with in-demand Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino.

The Argentine has guided Spurs to three consecutive top-three finishes in the Premier League and as each season passes under Pochettino, the North London club look better placed at competing against top European sides.

Sky Sports report that Chelsea are considering an approach for Pochettino if, as expected, Conte moves on this summer.

Get breaking news alerts. "It's not the most logical move for him if he is going to leave Tottenham Hotspur", he told talkSPORT.

"If contract talks aren't going the way he wants, it would be perfectly natural in the wild world of football for the people around Pochettino to remind Tottenham just how desirable a manager he is, and no club would be more guaranteed to get under Tottenham's skin than potential interest from Chelsea, because that is a very intense rivalry". If I read that Real Madrid or Barcelona were in for him, that might be more credible.

GETTY Antonio Conte is set to leave Chelsea this summer

Wembley recorded a 77,000 plus attendance against Leicester City on the final day of the season as Spurs beat the Foxes 5-4 to end the season as the third team in the league and in the process qualify for the Champions League.

Who could replace Antonio Conte as Chelsea manager?

But with the clamour for trophies growing stronger all the time, Pochettino, in an alarming change of tone, suggested that Spurs might have to ditch their current policy of frugality and "take risks" to start delivering silverware.

While Rose was not wanting to go down that road again, he did urge Daniel Levy and the Spurs board to come together and give Pochettino what he is asking for.
