Fabrizio Romano updates on Enzo Maresca as potential next Chelsea manager

Chelsea are building confidence under Mauricio Pochettino

Chelsea eyes Enzo Maresca as potential successor to Mauricio Pochettino

In the latest twist to Chelsea’s managerial saga, the club is reportedly considering Leicester City boss Enzo Maresca as a potential replacement for Mauricio Pochettino.

Famous transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has disclosed that the Blues have initiated internal discussions about appointing the 44-year-old Italian, who has a £7 million release clause in his contract with Leicester.

Maresca, who has had a remarkable debut season in the Championship, led Leicester to a league title and secured their promotion to the Premier League. His success has not gone unnoticed by Chelsea, who are in search of a dynamic manager to lead them forward.

Despite signing a three-year deal with Leicester last summer, Maresca is now expected to leave the King Power Stadium before the new campaign begins.

His previous stints in England, including managing Manchester City’s Elite Development Squad to a Premier League 2 title and working as Pep Guardiola’s assistant, add to his impressive resume.

While Maresca is highly appreciated at Stamford Bridge, he is not necessarily the front-runner for the managerial role. Chelsea is carefully evaluating their options, with Ipswich Town’s Kieran McKenna and Brentford’s Thomas Frank also on their radar.

McKenna, who guided Ipswich to back-to-back promotions and into the Premier League, has already attracted interest from several top-tier clubs, including Manchester United. The 38-year-old has a release clause in his contract with Ipswich, which runs until 2027, but he is expected to explore new opportunities.

As Chelsea continues its search for the ideal candidate, the club remains methodical in its approach, ensuring they select the right fit to steer the team towards success.
