Mauricio Pochettino's eye-watering Chelsea compensation package as his next job lined up

Mauricio Pochettino is set to bank an eye-watering £10m from Chelsea as he sets his sights on the England job.

The Argentine left Stamford Bridge after just a season last month. Chelsea have already named his successor after striking a £10m deal for former Leicester tactician Enzo Maresca.

And the Blues look set to fork out the same amount once again. Pay-off negotiations have taken place between Chelsea chiefs and Pochettino since his exit.

That prevented Pochettino from taking another job in England after links with Manchester United. But according to The Sun, those talks are now over with a £10m package having been agreed on.

That now allows him to line up his next job, which could be with The FA. Pochettino is one of the front-runners for the job should it become available soon.

Current England boss Gareth Southgate sees his contract expire at the end of the calendar year. FA chiefs are not actively looking to replace Southgate. But CEO Mark Bullingham has confirmed that a plan is in place should he depart in the immediate future.

"I have said before that any organisation really has a succession plan in place for their top employees, and we are no different to that,” he said. “This succession plan normally includes everything from what you do for short-term cover, through to a process you follow to candidates.

“We have that for top employees. That’s really all I want to say on that topic. Just because I want to respect Gareth and the team that they are very focused on the tournament. Clearly, you plan lots of different scenarios for all your top employees all the time."

Southgate has also hinted that he could leave should England fail to lift the European Championship trophy in Germany. Speaking to German outlet Bild, he said: "If we don't win, I probably won't be here anymore. Then it might be the last chance I think about half the national team coaches leave after a tournament — that's the nature of international football.

"I've been here for almost eight years now and we've been close. So I know that you can't keep standing in front of the public and saying, 'A little bit more please' because at some point, people lose faith in your message. If we want to be a great team and I want to be a top coach, then you have to deliver in the big moments."
