Next Chelsea boss already identified as Antonio Conte prepares to exit club


The Blues are currently on the verge of missing out on the final Champions League qualification spot as they now occupy the 5th position, eight points behind Tottenham who are in fourth position.

The Stamford Bridge outfit were thrashed 3-1 by Tottenham last weekend and that defeat has further dashed Conte’s hopes of retaining his job beyond this season.

With the result against Tottenham, Chelsea’s managerial post is no doubt going to see another manager come in. Yet, the question remains who would be coming in as the next coach.

There have been reports linking former Barcelona manager Luis Enrique to the Blues top post this season, but the manager has failed to give any comments about his speculated move to Stamford Bridge this summer.

Paris St-German manager Emery Unai is another man who is being considered by the Blues hierarchy to replace Antonio Conte in the summer. The coach is ready to quit his job as PSG manager due to his reported feud with Neymar and some other ‘big’ figures at the club.

The latest news emanating from Stamford Bridge via the Daily Mirror suggests that Juventus manager Maximiliano Allegri has surprisingly emerged as the favourite candidate for the Blues job. Abrahamovic seems to have a soft spot for Italian managers.

The coach has recorded huge success with the Old Lady since he joined the team from Ac Milan in the 2014-15 season. He has led the team to three Serie A trophies and they have also played in two UEFA Champions League final losing both against Spanish teams – Real Madrid and Barcelona.
