The former Bayern Munich coach has reportedly put an end to negotiations with the London club.
There will be no crossover between Julian Nagelsmann and Thomas Tuchel. Replaced at Bayern Munich by the former Chelsea coach, the German technician will not return to the Blues, who are however looking for a renowned coach after ousting the one who took Tuchel’s place last September, Graham Potter.
According to Fabrizio Romano, Nagelsmann has ended negotiations with Chelsea and is no longer interested in the job. The former Leipzig coach and the London club had been in contact for several days, but the two parties would not have found common ground on certain important points, adds Fabrizio Romano.

The transfer window specialist indicates that we can also cross out the name of Luis Enrique in the list of possible Chelsea coaches. Mauricio Pochettino, on the other hand, is still in contention, and is now the favorite to land at Stamford Bridge. The English press also evokes the track leading to Vincent Kompany, the former captain of Manchester City, who is doing a remarkable job on the side of Burnley in the Championship.
