Abramovic has been eyeing a certain Argentinean to take over the reins of the club net summer. But the current Chile boss and best manager nominee comes with conditions apply that involve getting an Arsenal frontman!
Sampaoli has been a target for the Blues ever since the axe was handed to Mourinho and the current plight in the Chile camps and management bodes well for the Stamford Bridge outfit. “In this environment I would not want to work or live in the country.I never imagined in such little time the image of an idol who gave a lot to Chilean football could be destroyed.I am frankly disappointed and in these conditions I cannot keep leading the team when my mind is elsewhere” said the 55 year old boss, further highlighting his desire to manage someplace else.
However for the Blues this blessing comes with a foil, cracking which the Russian owner can get the Argentinean.
Sampaoli has shown his desire to manage in England and take over Chelsea but only if the Blues can get Sanchez to Stamford Bridge. The ex Barcelona man is valued at 50 milion pounds and Arsenal would not be willing to let go of their premier man in favour of their rivals.
Sanchez is all set to make a comeback from injury for the Gunners and Arsene Wenger would hope that the paceman would be fit for the Champions League clash against the Catalan giants. In the light of the important role attributed to the Chile forward at the Emirates Stadium, Chelsea can potentially bid goodbye to a chance of getting Sampaoli.
But that raises another question, Who will feature at Chelsea next summer?
