Chelsea have been in disarray since the termination of Thomas Tuchel's contract in September 2022 due to an off-the-field incident that happened between himself and the board.

Sky Sports News confirmed on its official website that Chelsea's board traveled to Germany to meet with Julian Nagelsmann. They were told that senior members of Chelsea's legal team have been in discussions with their counterparts at Bayern to better understand what level of compensation will be due to the German club under the terms of his departure if the Blues decide Nagelsmann is the man they want.

Nagelsmann is a known face to many ot the Chelsea hierarchy directors Chris Vivell and Laurence Stewart who had worked with him at RB Leipzig - both Stewart and his co-sporting director Paul Winstanley flew to Germany at the end of last week to hold talks with the former Bayern Munich manager. The German is one of several candidates Chelsea are considering for the summer, including Luis Enrique, Mauricio Pochettino, and Ruben Amorim.
