    Quite a few prominent clubs are changing managers next season:
    1. Arsenal – Wenger out, top 3 candidates to replace him by odds are Luis Enrique, Ancelotti, and Rodgers, not a bad company to be mentioned it for ol' Brendan!
    2. Chelsea – Conte out, it seems like their top 3 candidates are Enrique, Allegri and Sarri.
    3. PSG – Emery out, Tuchel seems to be the odds-on favorite. To me it seems like a strange choice to hire an unlikable, self-absorbed character to manage a team of over-indulged prima-donnas.
    4. Juve – Allegri is probably leaving after growing "tired of winning", no idea who they are considering as replacements.
    5. Napoli – if Sarri leaves will probably hire another obscure Italian manager.
    6. Bayern – took themselves out of the merry-go-round by filling their vacancy with their GM's best buddy, Robert Kovac.
    7. Borussia Dortmund – Peter Stöger's position is not secure, I would say it's less than 50% that he will survive as manager until next season's winter break.
    8. Monaco – reportedly interested in Arsene...
    There could be a few more openings before the season is over.

    Saw that Stojkovic also is a candidate for the Arsenal job, at least if Wenger will have any say in who takes over.

    Wagner at Huddersfield is a target for a return to BVB

    It will be an interesting summer managerwise. We also have the World Cup which means quite a few International managers will be out of the job in June.

    Kovac to Bayern is an interesting choice. I see the snipe of him getting the job due to be the best buddy of salahalabala (?) and that might well be true. However, Bayern is filled up with old Pro's in different positions, and I Guess they all have to agree this is good. Normally they would have gone for some reputed heavyweight or veteran (Arsene, Allegri, Emery, Mourinho, Conte, Loew etc could have been mentioned) , so it is cool to see they dare to put their own reputation at stake with a gamble here. Also surprised that when they take a different direction they look past the Young German managers that have some degree of success.

    This reminds me of a game of musical chairs. The unlucky one who is still unattached when positions ##1-8 are filled will get to manage Everton...

    I wouldn’t be surprised if Zidane gets the boot - unless they win the CL.

    If I was on the board of Arsenal football club, my shortlist would be Jardim, Allegri, Simeone, Conte and Ancelloti.
    Ancelloti is probably the most decorated of the managers on the list and not tied to any existing contract.

    It seem like a few of those candidates are short term, while others would build up the Club long term. Simeone is probably a very good shout for the long term, while ANcelotti will be there 2-3 years max, and I am not sure that is a good solution for such a job.

    I think they've been working on this for over a year. Bringing in the new staff, which Wenger clearly never wanted, was a sign of that, so I don't think they've just sacked him and are looking for who is around. They've been in talks for ages, apparently with Enrique, and it's being finalised soon.

    Lots of backroom movements indeed.

    Looks likely on paper given his strong finish of the season and Newcastle unlikely to give him any money to spend.
    Where could he go though? He probably wants to stay in England and I can't see Arsenal or Chelsea going after him

    If Pochettino leaves Spurs then I can see Levy seeing him as someone who can win things.

    Beyond that, Italy/Spain calls.

    What big jobs in Spain/Italy do you think he might get? Rafa's days at the bigger clubs are over.

    Not too sure about that. I still think he has a good reputation out there. Maybe not Bayern or Juve, but I can see him taking the reigns of At Madrid if Simone leaves or AC Milan when Gattuso get the boot.

    I can't see Rafa taking A.Madrid being a Real man.

    AC Milan would be a good job for him.
