Enrique has already met the Chelsea hierarchy for managerial talks.
Chelsea’s search for new manager continues and they have picked few names too finalise the replacement of Graham Potter.
Luis Enrique is believed to be one of the potential Graham Potter replacements being considered, journalist Simon Phillips told GIVEMESPORT.
Potter was the latest name who was sacked earlier this month and Phillips admits the West London club are willing to take their time over hiring his successor.
According to football.london, during the aftermath of Potter’s sacking, Enrique has already met the Chelsea hierarchy for managerial talks.
It’s added Enrique travelled to the capital for discussions over the vacant position, with reports suggesting the meeting was positive.
The report adds Enrique is just one of a number of names in the hat for the Chelsea job, with the likes of Julian Nagelsmann, Mauricio Pochettino, Ruben Amorim and Oliver Glasner having all been considered.
Chelsea took the decision to hire ex-manager Frank Lampard on a short-term contract until the end of the campaign, giving Todd Boehly and Co. some breathing space to get their next permanent appointment correct.
On the 52-year-old and links to other managers, Phillips told GIVEMESPORT: “Julian Nagelsmann isn’t the only candidate that Chelsea are looking at. They’re also planning to bring Luis Enrique back in for a second interview. But as well as those two, there are up to seven more candidates that Chelsea are considering right now.”
Spearheaded by a fearsome attack of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar, Enrique guided Barcelona to the league, cup and Champions League treble in 2014/15.
