Former Barcelona coach Luis Enrique has agreed to join Chelsea, it has been revealed.
El Confidencial says Enrique has settled terms with Chelsea to succeed Antonio Conte at the end of this season. It’s suggested Chelsea’s board has run out of patience with Conte after his constant sniping this season over transfer policy.
Enrique stepped down from Barca last summer and vowed to take a year off from football before returning to the game next term.
After working in Italy and Spain, Enrique has favoured a move to England – and today’s claims in Madrid suggest he will be the next manager of Chelsea.
