Chelsea snub Max Allegri as to agree deal for surprise Antonio Conte replacement

It no longer news that Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is set to be shown the exit door by the end of the season after failing in his bid to defend the league title which he won last season.

In the mission to find a capable replacement for the Italian tactician, the West London club have been meeting with many managers whom they believe would bring the team back to their best in terms of performance ahead of next season.

Luis Enrique, Carlo Ancelotti, Unai Emery, have all been linked with the Blues managerial post but none has accept to make a sensational move to Stamford Bridge stadium in the summer.

There seems to be another twist in the Blues’ search for a new manager as reports suggest that Monaco manager Leonardo Jardim is being tracked by Chelsea as the next manager.

Jardim 43, has been one of the best managers in the French Ligue 1 since he joined Monaco last year. He surprisingly led the team to last year’s Champions League semi-final before losing out to Juventus.

Monaco won the Ligue 1 trophy at the expense of PSG who have always been winning the league for more than five consecutive seasons.

While reacting to the possibility of moving out of Monaco this season, Jardim admitted he would only leave the club if top European clubs came in with an impressive offer.

According to him, it will be great working with other clubs who are more competitive and bigger than the Ligue 1 giants.
