Tuchel Next Permanent Chelsea Manager?
Thomas Tuchel was sacked by PSG earlier this season despite steering the French champions to last season’s Champions League final, which they only lost 1-0 to a fine Bayern Munich side. PSG had been struggling to defend their Ligue 1 title this season when the board pulled the trigger, somewhat harshly most felt, and replaced the German with Mauricio Pochettino.
That means 47-year-old Tuchel, one of the most promising coaches in Europe by all accounts, is a free agent and given Chelsea’s new-found German connection following the recent signings of Timo Werner and Kai Havertz, their compatriot might just be the right man to come in and get the best out of the expensive summer recruits.
He’s understandably high up in the early betting on who will succeed Lampard, but if Chelsea feel he could do a better job than their inexperienced former midfielder then they may need to move quick as Tuchel has no shortage of suitors.

Max Allegri tipped to be next Chelsea boss
Massimiliano Allegri has been without a job since he left Juventus after five wonderful years at the Turin club, with the 51-year-old having five consecutive Scudettos with the Old Lady in addition to four Coppa Italias. Juve also reached the Champions League final twice under the Italian and Allegri has bags of experience when it comes to dealing with strong characters in the dressing room.
It does appear that Allegri has positioned himself for the possible chance of managing Barcelona next season, with Ronald Koeman's future at the Nou Camp looking dim, although Roberto Martinez is also being linked with one of the ultimate managerial positions in Europe should Koeman fail to turn things around.
However, Chelsea are not shy in coming forward when it comes to approaching high-profile candidates and they are sure to be waiting in the wings should Lampard fail to turn this current spell around. He is as short as 3/1 with Ladbrokes to be next in the Blues hot-seat.
Could Vieira Leave Nice for London?
Patrick Vieira has very strong associations with Arsenal Football Club, although he’s currently trading as the 5/1 second favourite with Paddy Power to replace Maurizio Sarri at Stamford Bridge, with the 42-year-old having plenty of ambition to manage at the very top. It was rumoured he was considered for the Gunners job twelve months ago and perhaps the Nice manager will be on the Chelsea shortlist.
Vieira has more management experience than Lampard, having taken charge of New York City between 2016-18, while he’s spent the past season in charge at Nice and the Ligue 1 side finished seventh in their domestic league last season. It’s especially noticeable that this was achieved despite having one of the youngest teams in France.
Perhaps the Arsenal legend would turn down any approach from Chelsea on the basis that he’d prefer to eventually become the Gunners manager and Arsene Wenger recently predicted that this would happen. While Unai Emery remains in charge at the Emirates, Vieira can continue to operate successfully as Nice manager and wait in the wings for his opportunity.

Nuno Could Fit the Bill at Chelsea
Nuno Espirito Santo has only been a football manager for seven years, although the 45-year-old has already achieved some great things and that includes steering Wolves to promotion to the Premier League before engineering a top-half finish in the English top flight with Wanderers.
While the Midlands club have backed Nuno financially in the market, Wolves can hardly be described as an expensively-assembled team and the powers-that-be at Chelsea would surely include the Portuguese on any shortlist for a vacant managerial position.
After all, Wanderers took four points off the Blues this season and it was nearly six, with Eden Hazard rescuing a point for Chelsea at Stamford Bridge as Wolves led 1-0 going into injury-time. With the London side having a transfer embargo in place for the next two transfer windows, Nuno could be a great fit in terms of having to work with the players already at the club.

Could Simeone be Prised from Madrid?
Diego Simeone has regularly been linked to top managerial roles in England, with the Argentine having achieved great things in charge of Atletico Madrid and it’s likely that the 49-year-old will be able to take his pick of the vacant positions when the time finally arrives for him to leave the Wanda Metropolitano.
El Cholo did suggest he might leave the Spanish capital at the end of the 2018/19 season although Simeone has since made comments that indicate that he wants to oversee the rebuilding job that the club face during the summer. While Antoine Griezmann seems destined to leave Atleti, it would seem that his manager might not be prepared to follow suit.
Chelsea have apparently been tracking Simeone for some time and it’s hard not to be impressed by someone who has ensured Atletico Madrid have competed for domestic and European silverware during the past few years. However, results have not always been achieved with glittering performances and the Argentine does favour a pragmatic approach to the game.
Mourinho, Zola and Deschamps Also on the List
It was a surprise when Jose Mourinho returned to Stamford Bridge for a second bite of the cherry and it would be a major shock if the Portuguese wound up at Chelsea for a third stint. Having left Manchester United under a cloud last season, it appears as though his time managing an English club is over.
Gianfranco Zola is currently part of the coaching staff under Maurizio Sarri and the Chelsea legend is as short as 25/1 with Betfair to make the step up to Head Coach, although it would seem more likely that the Italian would continue in a similar role under a new man.
Didier Deschamps is an interesting name in the mix, with the French national team manager having won the 2018 World Cup with Les Bleus and he might jump at the chance to manage several of his compatriots at Chelsea. N’Golo Kante and Olivier Giroud are currently at the club, while his clout could even see players like Paul Pogba or Antoine Griezmann eventually arrive.
