Mauricio Pochettino leaves Chelsea by mutual agreement as managerial dominoes fall rapidly – Man United News And Transfer News

Erik ten Hag’s future at Manchester United could be decided after the FA Cup final, but the dominoes around him are falling.

Just days after Roberto de Zerbi announced his departure from Brighton and Hove Albion in unexpected circumstances, another surprise has replaced it.

David Ornstein reports that Mauricio Pochettino has left Chelsea by mutual agreement with immediate effect.

The Argentine met the club’s hierarchy and after the end-of-season review the decision was made to part ways.

Chelsea’s decision will have huge consequences for United, as not only does a potential replacement for Ten Hag appear out of nowhere, but Chelsea’s potential target list matches United’s.

The report claims that Chelsea will look to replace Pochettino with Ipswich Town’s Kieran McKenna, with Stuttgart’s Sebastian Hoeness and Girona’s Michel also among the contenders.

United have been linked with McKenna endlessly, but in a turn of events, the late Chelsea manager could become INEOS’ top choice.

Pochettino has long been linked with the United job and remains an INEOS favourite.

However, there were not many expectations of him leaving Chelsea, especially since the Blues had made their debut in the second half of the season.

From being in the bottom half of the table, Chelsea had overtaken United and eventually finished sixth.

Pochettino’s stock remains high in world football while Chelsea’s executive structure remains in doubt. Chelsea’s underlying metrics remained positive in stark contrast to United’s under Ten Hag.

If the FA Cup final was no longer crucial for Ten Hag, then add to it the specter of Mauricio Pochettino being available on the market.

The dominoes around him fall quickly. Will INEOS be able to resist pulling the trigger on the Dutchman’s fate?
