Chelsea fans are split on the latest big news from Sky Sports, who claim the Blues will try to steal Mauricio Pochettino this summer.
According to the report from Sky Sports, Chelsea are considering a shock swoop for Pochettino if Antonio Conte leaves the club as expected.
Conte’s Chelsea have looked dejected and unmotivated in the second half of the season, and the Italian could leave the club after the FA Cup final.
Pochettino’s Spurs guaranteed their Champions League status for the third straight year last week, an extremely impressive feat given his budget compared to the likes of Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho.
Tottenham fans have often been left furious by media reports claiming stars like Harry Kane and Dele Alli will leave, and they aren’t very happy about the latest links.
Pochettino did hint at a possible exit from the club if he doesn’t get the backing he wants this summer, saying the club must take risks to improve.
“If we want to be real contenders for big, big trophies, we need to review a little,” Pochettino said.
“First of all, I need to speak with Daniel, then we will know what we are going to do.
“I think it’s a moment the club needs to take risks and if possible work harder than the previous season to be competitive again.”
Pochettino is clearly after more backing from Daniel Levy and the Tottenham board, though this does seem like Sky Sports have added two and two together to get one hundred.
While a few Chelsea fans think the Argentine could be a success, plenty of others have been annoying Tottenham fans with their responses, insisting they want a manager with trophy winning experience.

No not really. He’s not proved anything, everything about him is media hyped & encompassed by the Spurs love in the British media has with them. He has been lucky, he’s got Kane, without him spurs are nothing. He’s out of form at the minute, guess what, spurs are out of form.
