“Heartbeat of Chelsea” – Enzo Maresca to make 22-years-old Chelsea star the ‘Heart’ of his Chelsea’s team

The Plan for Stamford Bridge by Maresca

Enzo Maresca is eager to start building his Stamford Bridge approach by starting a £75,000-a-week Chelsea star at the core of his team. With regard to Chelsea’s future, this erstwhile protégé of Pep Guardiola has lofty goals.

Why Did Chelsea Select Maresca?
The Italian manager is taking over at Chelsea after leading Leicester City to the Championship and Premier League promotion on his first tryout in the previous campaign. Mauricio Pochettino, who departed the team around a week ago, is being replaced by him. The Chelsea board clearly believes in Maresca because he has agreed to a long-term five-year contract, which is far longer than Pochettino’s last one.

The Process of Making Decisions

The decision to appoint Maresca was driven by co-sporting directors Laurence Stewart and Paul Winstanley, with support from Todd Boehly, Behdad Eghbali, and other high-ranking officials. Chelsea also considered Ipswich Town’s Kieran McKenna and Brentford’s Thomas Frank for the position, but Maresca emerged as the preferred choice. As Fabrizio Romano highlighted, there were never any real doubts about Maresca’s interest in the Chelsea job.

Maresca’s Commitment to Chelsea

Despite rumors that he might stay at Leicester, Maresca’s desire to join Chelsea was evident. He is excited about the project, which focuses on nurturing young talent with promising futures. Chelsea’s directors and owners believe in Maresca’s coaching abilities, seeing him as a perfect fit for both the present and the future. His passion for possession-based, quality football and his deep understanding of top-level football, even as a young manager, made him the ideal choice for Chelsea.

Potential Transfers
Chelsea is reportedly in discussions with Fulham defender Tosin Adarabioyo, potentially making him Maresca’s first signing as head coach. Additionally, there’s talk of Boehly willing to spend around £19.5 million for Burnley goalkeeper James Trafford.

Maresca’s Focus on Cole Palmer
According to The Telegraph, Maresca is particularly fond of Cole Palmer, a player he previously worked with at Manchester City. Palmer, earning £75,000 per week, played a crucial role last season and is expected to be central to Maresca’s 4-3-3 formation at Chelsea. Pundit Joe Cole praised Palmer, noting his confidence and willingness to take control on the pitch, qualities that are often misunderstood as arrogance but are actually invaluable.

By embracing Maresca’s vision and his focus on young, dynamic players, Chelsea is looking forward to an exciting new chapter under his leadership.
