Chelsea rival Barcelona in Michel pursuit

Premier League giants Chelsea are ready to battle it out with Barcelona for the services of Girona boss Michel.

According to Marcos Benito via El Chiringuito TV, Chelsea and Barcelona are both looking to appoint Michel as their next boss. The 48-year-old manager has been doing wonders with Girona in La Liga, and his team’s impressive performances have resulted in him being linked with top clubs from across Europe.

Michel joined Girona in the summer of 2021. Since taking charge of the Catalan outfit, he has led them in 119 matches, averaging 1.72 points per match. He has managed to get his idea across to players quite clearly, and the team’s performances have gone up exponentially of late.

In the ongoing season, they have exceeded expectations and are currently pushing for the league title. They have arrived as surprise contenders and are only second to Real Madrid on the table with two points separating them. They have only lost once this season and have won 17 out of their 23 matches in the league.

His team’s incredible run proves that the 48-year-old has what it takes to help teams push for major titles. And, if he has a squad full of superstars, he could touch great heights as a manager. Barcelona and Chelsea are two big clubs keen on having him on their bench.

Xavi has already made a decision on his future, he will part ways with the Catalan giants after the end of the season. The decision might have come as a surprise to the people at the club, but they have started the search for their next boss.

Michel is one of the names on their radar, they have seen him up close in La Liga, and people at the club feel he could help them get back to their best. But, they are not alone as Chelsea are also considering the idea of parting ways with Mauricio Pochettino, who took charge at the start of the season.

The Argentine manager has failed to have the kind of impact the Blues wanted. With him struggling to get the desired results, they have started the search for their next manager. The London club are interested in appointing Michel as their next boss starting next season if they lose faith in Pochettino over the next few weeks.

Given the kind of results he has managed to get with the Girona squad, the Blues feel he could do wonders at their club given the kind of potential their young core has.
