Mauricio Pochettino’s future at Chelsea in doubt over transfer policy disputes

Mauricio Pochettino is considering quitting his Chelsea job if he is not granted more influence over the club’s transfer decisions.

Chelsea’s relative strong finish to the season, which saw them secure sixth place on the final day, Pochettino’s frustration with the club’s transfer policy could lead to his departure.

Pochettino, whose contract expires next summer, is scheduled to meet with co-owners Todd Boehly and Behdad Eghbali to review the season and outline plans for the summer transfer window.

The Argentine manager has been unhappy with his limited role in recruitment over the past two transfer windows and desires more control in shaping the squad.
