Chelsea To Swoop Up Rival Boss To Replace Antonio Conte

Chelsea To Swoop Up Rival Boss To Replace Antonio Conte

Davinson Sanchez has signed a new improved contract with Tottenham, keeping him at the club until 2024.

Sanchez, 21, joined Spurs last summer from Ajax for a fee that could reportedly reach £42 million after he helped the Dutch side reach the final of the Europa League. However, Spurs are thought to be keen to offer the highly rated manager a new deal and Pochettino reportedly would like to see his wage increase to around the £10m mark.

He also told chairman Daniel Levy - famed for his low-priced transfer deals and strict wage structure - he needed to "take risks and be brave" to end the club's hunt for silverware. But Chelsea is now surprisingly eyeing a move for local rivals Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino.

Following Sunday's season-ending 5-4 Premier League win over Leicester at Wembley, the Argentine coach said Spurs must "take risks" to win top trophies.

They made it to the semi-finals of the FA Cup and were knocked out by Juventus in the last 16 of the Champions League.

"It's a seminal moment and I have been saying that for some time", the former striker told Press Association Sport at the launch of the BBC's World Cup coverage.

"I've learned so much from everyone, not just from the other centre-backs like Jan (Vertonghen), like Toby (Alderweireld), Juan (Foyth), and also Victor (Wanyama) and Eric Dier when they play in this position, but I pick up things from every player and of course from the gaffer (Pochettino)".

"For me, Tottenham was a big step, but now I enjoy everything".
