Coach Mauricio Pochettino was completely obsessed with Manuel Ugarte.
Chelsea have had a rough time this season. During the summer and winter transfer markets alone, he invested more than 800 billion won to reinforce his strength, and made a bold choice to change managers twice during the season, but failed to produce results. It was eliminated from all cup competitions and was confirmed to be unrelated, and in the league, it stayed in 12th place and failed to advance to the European competition. The 12th place in the league was the worst result since the 10th place in the 2015-16 season.메이저놀이터
A new coach was brought in to correct the broken team atmosphere. The main character is Pochettino. Chelsea said on the club website on the 29th of last month (Korean time), “Coach Pochettino will lead Chelsea from the 2023-24 season. Options are included.”
He is a very capable manager. He showed a somewhat disappointing appearance after leading Paris Saint-Germain (PSG), but showed the temperament of a ‘master’ at Tottenham Hotspur. Son Heung-min, Harry Kane, Christian Eriksen, and Dele Alli have grown into world-class players, and they finished second in the league and runner-up in the UEFA Champions League (UCL). It was the best score in club history.
Chelsea are expecting a lot from manager Pochettino. Also, there is a lot of work that Pochettino has to do. At the same time as organizing the club’s situation, the bloated squad must also be managed.
At the same time as many players were nominated for departure, recruitment candidates were also revealed. The main character is Sporting’s Ugarte. As a defensive midfielder from Uruguay, he has been active as the core of Sporting, appearing in 47 matches this season.
Pochettino was serious about signing Ugarte. According to the British media ‘Football Insider’, he personally called Ugarte to talk about the recruitment and persuaded him.
At the same time, he promised to increase his salary. British media ‘Football London’ quoted Portuguese ‘Hekord’, “Chelsea will offer 3.5 million euros (about 4.9 billion won), which is higher than the first offer of 2 million euros (about 2.8 billion won).” said.
However, the recruiting process does not seem to be easy. This is because Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) is also targeting him. ‘Hekord’ announced, “PSG plans to offer Ugarte a salary equivalent to 5 million euros (about 7 billion won).”
