Chelsea managerial position is one of the posts the club’s owner Roman Abramovich is looking to find a good manager to occupy this summer as has reportedly made up his mind to show Antonio Conte the exit door by the end of this campaign.
As a result of his desperate search for a perfect replacement for the departing Italian, the billionaire has been linked with numerous coaches including Carlo Ancelotti, Unai Emery, Luis Enrique.
The latest report concerning Chelsea’s search for Conte’s successor suggests that the club might consider hiring Napoli manager Maurizio Sarri in the summer.
Sarri is one of the best managers in the Serie A this season after seeing his team mount huge pressure on Juventus for the League title, though they failed to maintain their claim for the trophy as they are now four points behind the Old Lady, who are in the first position.
Due to his experience and impressive run of results this season, Chelsea are set to make him their perfect candidate for the coaching roles ahead of the upcoming season.
As part of his decision to force a move to Stamford Bridge, the 59-year-old Italian manager has refused to extend his stay at Turin so as to avoid facing some hindrances, which could be created by Napoli boards, in his way to becoming the Blues boss.
Meanwhile, Sarri is currently preparing his men for a very crunch tie against the league Leaders Juventus on Sunday. The outcome of the game will go along way to determine who wins this season’s trophy.
