First Luis Enrique, now Julian Nagelsmann! Chelsea invite ex-Bayern boss to ‘present ideas’ for permanent manager role
- Nagelsmann approached by Chelsea
- German invited to London for interview
- Luis Enrique already a candidate
WHAT HAPPENED? According to German newspaper Bild, the former Bayern Munich manager has been given the opportunity "to introduce himself and present his ideas" to the Chelsea board as the club continue to seek a successor to the recently sacked Graham Potter. Previously linked with the Tottenham Hotspur, it is reported that Nagelsmann rejected that job in order to take time off. Frank Lampard's appointment as interim manager allows Chelsea to accommodate the 35-year-old's wishes while also discussing the post.
