    about Julian Nagelsmann and his possible engagement at Chelsea is continuously updated

+++ Update from April 4th, 6:50 p.m .:

The talks between Julian Nagelsmann and Chelsea FC are ongoing and should apparently be positive.

It looks pretty good that the ex-Bayern coach could take over the blues.

However, no final decision has been made, at least according to


transfer reporter Florian Plettenberg.

But does Nagelsmann want to get in immediately?

The ex-Bayern coach is said to be on vacation again.

After the frustrating Bayern exit, the young coach actually wanted to let it sink in and process it.

The following scenario is conceivable: Nagelsmann and Chelsea come to an agreement, but the 35-year-old will only take over from London next season.

Nagelsmann probably favorite at FC Chelsea: coaching competition from Germany?

+++ Update from April 3, 10:40 p.m .:

After his dismissal from Bayern Munich, Julian Nagelsmann is a very hot candidate for the future coaching position at Chelsea.

But it is more than questionable whether the ex-FCB coach will succeed him directly at Stamford Bridge.

However, an interim solution for the Champions League quarter-finalists seems more likely for the remainder of the season.

According to the


, the Blues are prepared to wait until the summer to make a final decision on the vacant coaching chair.

This is also supported by the short-term appointment of interim coach Bruno Salter after the separation from Potter.

Meanwhile, in addition to Nagelsmann, there are probably a number of candidates that the former club of Nagelsmann's successor and new coach at FC Bayern, Thomas Tuchel, is dealing with.

Nagelsmann is probably the top favorite for a coaching position at Chelsea: other candidates are being discussed

According to the Guardian,

other candidates should

be Mauricio Pochettino, Rúben Amorim from Sporting Lisbon and Luis Enrique in addition to the top favorite Nagelsmann.

The ex-Bayern coach could also face competition from Germany.

Because apparently Eintracht coach Oliver Glasner is also on the potential list for the job at Chelsea.

However, Pochettino is also said to be in talks with Tottenham Hotspur.

Other high-profile names will also be brought into play for the Blues sideline job.



's illustrious list includes some names that catch the eye as they would likely be available immediately.

On the one hand there is the French legend Zinédine Zidane, who won the Champions League three times as a coach with Real Madrid and has not been on the sidelines for almost two years.

Besides Nagelsmann: Chelsea list could include some household names

Jürgen Klopp's predecessor at Liverpool FC, Brendan Rodgers, also seems to be given a chance to succeed Potter.

After all, he was just kicked out at Leicester City.

In addition, an old acquaintance could return to London and possibly lead Chelsea as a heart project on the road to success to old or new glory.

However, legendary coach José Mourinho, who has coached the Blues twice, has returned to the English capital.

However, there is one major obstacle.

Mourinho is currently still employed at AS Roma.

According to information from the


, a completely different person could soon swing the scepter at Chelsea FC, which at first glance only a few have on paper.

Nevertheless, Marco Silva should also be in the race.

This is currently still FC Fulham under contract.

Chelsea owner Boehly have the Portuguese on their radar when looking for a new manager, as the newly promoted team is having a strong season and is even ahead of the Blues in tenth place after 28 Premier League games.

Nagelsmann after Bayern-Aus probably favorite to succeed the coach at Chelsea

+++ Update from April 3, 11:34 a.m .:

Apparently Julian Nagelsmann is really a candidate at Chelsea!

The ex-Bayern coach is said to be the favorite for the Blues, as Fabrizio Romano reports.

He should know, after all, it was he who announced that Nagelsmann had to go to Bayern and that Thomas Tuchel would be his successor.

Internally, the name Nagelsmann is said to have already been mentioned by the Chelsea bosses on Sunday after Graham Potter was fired.

They think he's a talented coach.

Further talks should bring a decision, writes Romano on Twitter.

🚨🔵 Julian Nagelsmann is the favorite candidate to replace Graham Potter as new Chelsea head coach, as reported yesterday.


Nagelsmann was mentioned yesterday during internal discussions — Julian is considered a talented coach.

Talks are ongoing to make best decision.

— Fabrizio Romano (@FabrizioRomano) April 2, 2023

The fact that Nagelsmann takes over Chelsea immediately should be considered impossible.

It would be possible for the 35-year-old to join Stamford Bridge in the summer.

Oliver Kahn spoke

positively about the future of ex-coach Nagelsmann on

Sky90 on Sunday evening.

Does he know more?

Chelsea FC fires Potter: ex-Tuchel club kicks out coach – Nagelsmann a candidate?

+++ First report from April 2, 9:50 p.m .:

Munich / London – Graham Potter is no longer a Chelsea FC coach!

As the Blues announced on Sunday evening, Thomas Tuchel's ex-club has separated from his successor after only seven months.

The 2-0 defeat against Aston Villa on Saturday was probably the straw that broke the camel's back.

At the beginning of September, Potter took over Chelsea from Tuchel in sixth place.

The Londoners, who also have DFB star Kai Havertz under contract, are now only in eleventh place.

Potter has only won seven of his 22 league games with Chelsea.

Chelsea FC fires Potter: ex-Tuchel club kicks out coach – Nagelsmann a candidate?

On an interim basis, Bruno Saltor will take over the fortunes of the Blues.

It is not yet clear what role this will play for Anthony Barry, whom Tuchel would like to bring to Bayern Munich.

It is possible that the new Munich coach, who made his debut against BVB successfully on Saturday, will only get his desired assistant coach faster than expected.

The name Julian Nagelsmann will probably soon appear in the Champions League quarter-finalists.

However, the ex-Bayern coach is said to have recently canceled Tottenham Hotspur.

It would be strange, however, if Nagelsmann were to take over Chelsea, which meets Real Madrid in the premier class, after his Bayern exit.
