It seems that the former champions of England will lose manager Antonio Conte at the end of the campaign, with the former Juventus boss set to leave the Londoners. This would mean that they would be looking for the right option to replace him, with a host of options being considered for the managerial job. The search for the perfect replacement continues, as the Premier League giants look to get back to winning ways, with the ambition of winning more silverware in the days to come.
For the same reason, the west London side could be all set to make a move for Napoli boss Maurizio Sarri, who has a £7m release clause in his current contract and the Blues would be hoping that he moves to Stamford Bridge.
Another big name from the list of contenders to replace the Italian main-man is former Barcelona coach Luis Enrique, though it is still not certain whom the club will sign.
Carlo Ancelotti has also been another option, which the tabloids have linked with Chelsea in recent times and could be set to make his return to the club.
The 59-year-old main-man is also said to have instructed some of his staff members to start studying English, as per a report coming from Italian newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport.
To further add to that, the manager’s agent Alessandro Pellegrini has said to have held talks with the Blues over a potential move, which could be a huge hint as to what might happen in the days to come.
The coach of the Naples based side, who himself speaks English has a clause in his contract that needs to be triggered before the 31st of May.
It was featured on the first page of the paper on Thursday, which would be a major claim to make by any media outlet.
The club is currently at 5th place in the top flight of English football and is currently fighting for a place in the Champions League for the upcoming campaign.
With that being said, the management isn’t really happy with the way that the team has performed this season and are looking for a change.
Another name being linked with the Chelsea job is Paris Saint-Germain manager Unai Emery, who could also be an option to replace Conte.
The confirmation that these stories give is that the Italian manager will be going and a new manager will be coming in.
There has been a need for change at the club and this story puts Sarri as the front-runner to take the job, if the story is true.
However, there will be a lot of factors still that will play a major part in the signing of a new manager at the club.
The west London side are set to face off against Manchester United in the final of the FA Cup and even if Conte has to leave, he will be hoping that his side can end the campaign with some silverware to their name.
