Julian Nagelsmann's girlfriend hints at Chelsea job

Julian Nagelsmann’s girlfriend hints that the German could become Chelsea’s next manager as she ‘puts new job on HOLD’ after the former Bayern Munich boss held talks with the Blues

  • Nagelsmann held talks with Chelsea and the hierarchy were said to be impressed
  • Lena Wurzenberger new job has seemingly been out on hold for several weeks
  • Chelsea have been on the hunt for a new manager since Graham Potter left 

Julian Nagelsmann’s girlfriend has reportedly put her new job on hold, increasing speculation that the former Bayern Munich manager could be set for a return to management soon.

Nagelsmann was sacked by Bayern at the end of March and replaced by Thomas Tuchel, and has been high in demand from a number of clubs since.

In the Premier League, both Tottenham and Chelsea have been keeping tabs on the German as they look to replace Antonio Conte and Graham Potter respectively.

Chelsea’s co-sporting directors, Paul Winstanley and Laurence Stewart, are said to have met with Nagelsmann in London last Thursday.

And according to The Sun, Nagelsmann’s girlfriend, Lena Wurzenberger, has put a new role at BMW on hold, sparking speculation that an announcement over her partner’s future could be imminent.

Wurzenberger, a former newspaper reporter in Germany, is said to have been due to have started her new role on April 1.

She is believed to have secured the new role while Nagelsmann was still in charge in Munich, though he was relieved of his duties soon after, with his future unclear.

But Chelsea chiefs sat down with the former Bayern Munich manager recently to discuss his vision for Chelsea and his strategy for achieving such goals. 

Officials were said to be impressed with Nagelsmann’s ideas and the subsequent conversations were positive, but a final decision is not believed to have been made.

Luis Enrique is also in the running for the Chelsea job, but it is believed that Nagelsmann has overtaken him as favourite for the role.

Frank Lampard is set to remain in charge of the Blues until the end of the season in a caretaker role, but the club have lost all four games with him in charge.

He took the reigns when Graham Potter was sacked at the start of the month, though Chelsea have been on the hunt for a permanent successor since.
