Julian Nagelsmann is yet to publicly speak on his negotiations with Chelsea but his girlfriend may have inadvertently given the game away.

Nagelsmann, the German manager, has already met with Chelsea representatives having been identified as the club’s leading target. Hence, an appointment appears yet more imperative after the Blues were dumped out of the Champions League by Real Madrid.

The 35-year-old Nagelsmann began the season at Bayern Munich having led them to the Bundesliga title in 2021/22. This season, he was in contention and won through to the last eight of Europe’s premier competition. Despite that, he was sacked in March and was replaced by Thomas Tuchel.

While he has remained tight lipped on links to Stamford Bridge, his other haldf, Lena Wurzenberger has dropped a major hint. According to reports, on April 1st, she was due to start a new role working for German car manufacturer BMW.

However, Wurzenberger, a former journalist has pushed back the start date to her new job. It’s only served to further fuel rumours that a deal between her man and Todd Boehly’s club is nearing.

There are other candidates in the frame though. The club have also made contact with Luis Enrique, while ex-Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino is also reportedly on the US businessman’s shortlist. And in what yet be an ironic twist, Spurs have also been linked to Nagelsmann.

Frank Lampard is currently in charge of Chelsea as interim manager. But any forlorn hopes he had of getting the job full time all but evaporated at the hands of Real on Tuesday. Trailing 2-0 from the first leg, two goals from Rodrygo scored twice to double their advantage as the holders cruised through.

And the squad’s problems have since been laid bare by Thiago Silva. He implied the mass amount of players signed this season had hindered progress. “We can’t be blaming the managers if we don’t take responsibilities”. He said.

“It’s a hard period for the club with a lot indecision. Change of ownership, new players arriving, we had to increase the size of the changing room because it didn’t fit the size of the squad. A positive point is that there are amazing players in the squad but on the other hand there are always players that are going to be unhappy.”
