Chelsea hold talks with Julian Nagelsmann

Chelsea have held positive talks with former Bayern Munich head coach Julian Nagelsmann, according to Florian Plettenberg

As per the report, Nagelsmann visited Chelsea officials last week in regards to the managerial role at the club when Frank Lampard steps down from his interim role this summer. 

Nagelsmann and Chelsea will take their time on the decision and won’t rush into making a call right away. The 35-year-old still wants to be absolutely sure and convinced of the project at Chelsea. 

Nagelsmann was unexpectedly relieved of his duties at Bayern after losing 2-1 to Bayer Leverkusen before the March international break. Despite being relieved of his duties, Nagelsmann is still on the payroll at the Bundesliga club and will be until he finds a new club. Should Chelsea wish to go with the German, they may have to pay Bayern a fee to buy him out of his existing contract.
