Enzo Maresca is one step closer to joining Chelsea.

European soccer transfer market expert Fabrizio Romano announced on social media on Sunday (July 27), “Chelsea and Enzo Maresca have agreed on the terms of his contract. It’s a two-year contract with a one-year option or a three-year contract. Maresca has already responded positively to Chelsea’s project. Now it depends on the club’s agreement on compensation.”

The appointment of Maresca moved quickly. Romano had previously stated that “Chelsea have had positive talks with Maresca regarding his appointment. He is happy with the Chelsea project and is 100% keen. There are also talks with Leicester City about compensation,” Romano had previously reported the positive news.

Italian publication Di Marzio also reported that “Chelsea see Maresca as a ‘long-term project’ and are considering appointing him.”

The Blues have also informed Kieran McKenna, who had been mentioned as a possible candidate alongside Maresca, that they have withdrawn their interest. “Chelsea called McKenna on Sunday evening to inform him that they were no longer in the running for the job,” Romano said. Brighton want a response from McKenna,” Romano said.

Mauricio Pochettino took over at Chelsea this season. Having spent his best years at Tottenham Hotspur, Pochettino’s leadership was highly anticipated at Chelsea. Despite a six-match unbeaten run in the league at the end of the season to qualify for Europe, Chelsea were 토토 unhappy with Pochettino’s overall performance and decided to part ways. “The club and Mr. Pochettino have decided to part ways by mutual consent,” Chelsea announced on its website on Dec. 22.

With Pochettino gone, Chelsea immediately began the search for his replacement. Several managers were mentioned as possible candidates. Maresca, McKenna, Roberto De Zerbi, Ruben Amorim, and Roberto Mourinho were among the names mentioned.

As mentioned, Maresca is currently the favorite. His name may be unfamiliar. That’s because he’s just starting his coaching career. The Italian coach played for Sevilla, Malaga, and Fiorentina before taking over as head coach at Ascoli Calcio in 2017. He then went on to coach at Sevilla and West 슬롯사이트 추천 Ham United before taking charge of Parma in 2021, his first step as a professional manager. From 2022 to 2023, he assisted Pep Guardiola at Manchester City before taking charge of Leicester City in the 2023-24 season.

In his first full season as a ‘manager’, Maresca immediately showed his leadership skills. Leicester won the league with 31 wins, four draws and 11 losses (97 points), winning promotion a year after relegation. The Chelsea hierarchy decided that Maresca was the right man to lead the club in the long term.
