Luis Enrique makes decision on next club amid multiple offers

Luis Enrique has reportedly decided to join Atletico Madrid. The Spaniard, however, will have to wait for Diego Simeone to leave the Wanda Metropolitano.

According to El Nacional, Enrique wants to take over as Atletico’s next manager but is waiting for the club to make a decision on Simeone. The Spaniard has also been linked with Tottenham and Chelsea. Spurs are in the market after sacking Antonio Conte earlier this week following his explosive interview after the draw with Southampton.

Meanwhile, Enrique said he hasn’t made a decision on his future. He told SER Gijon on Wednesday March 2 that he wants to become a Premier League manager but that is unlikely to happen in July:

“Since the end of the World Cup, I haven’t read the Spanish press. I haven’t looked at social media. I only read the English press. You can’t pretend or like everyone or control what they say about you The important thing is to be calm and enjoy the things you enjoy I would like to go to England for work.

He added:

“But I don’t see myself in the Premier League in July because I would like to go there to a team that can do important things, and it’s very difficult. I wouldn’t go to any Premier League team. I have had offers from national teams but not from clubs. It would have to be a very important team to take him, although it would be very difficult for me to face Spain. I don’t know if I would be ready.”

Tottenham want Luis Enrique to replace Antonio Conte

Tottenham are looking for a new manager after sacking Antonio Conte. They also have Julian Nagelsmann and Mauricio Pochettino on their wishlist and want the appointment done quickly. Alex Crook said on talkSPORT that Spurs want Luis Enrique:

“It will be a long process. Yesterday I was told by a reliable source that they want to get a shortlist of three people in the not too distant future. I think Luis Enrique will be on that shortlist. It’s a shortlist one to watch.. As far as (Julian) Nagelsmann is concerned, we know that they have had conversations with his representatives, not yet directly with him.”

Pochettino and Nagelsman are also on Real Madrid’s radar, so Tottenham could find themselves in a fight over the signing of either.
