Chelsea coaching job seems to be taking a new dimension as there are new reports over Conte’s future at the West London Club.
It is no longer news that Napoli manager Maurizio Sarri is being tipped as the next coach at Stamford Bridge. But there seems to be a new twist in the whole transfer speculation as Conte is tipped to be moving to Napoli while Sarri moves to Chelsea.
Antonio Conte told reporters before he leads his team to an embarrassing 3-0 defeat to Newcastle last Sunday that he remains confident of keeping his Chelsea job due to his contract with the club Blues.
Conte is believed to still have one year left in his deal with the West London Club and he told reporters that he would want to end his contract before moving out of Stamford Bridge.
Despite Conte’s verdict over his future, Chelsea board of directors are desperately in search of his replacement.
Should the Italian manager, who has had a season to forget with the Blues, leave Stamford Bridge, he could be ending back to Italy where he would be confirmed as Napoli manager, according to Sky Sports.
Meanwhile, Sarri is looking at the prospect of moving to the Premier League for the first time in his coaching career, and Chelsea are leading the race to sign the veteran manager.
Sarri has developed an interesting and lively squad of players during his time at Napoli, he would be hoping to enjoy the same success story with the Blues should he move to Stamford Bridge this summer.
