The speculation regarding the future of Antonio Conte won`t go away. The Italian looks set to become Roman Abramovich`s latest managerial casualty.

Whilst Chelsea are still fighting for fourth place in the Premier League and the FA Cup, the Russian is unlikely dispense with his services. However, it would appear Conte`s successor is all but sorted.

According to The Express Chelsea are close to an agreement that would make Luis Enrique the clubs next manager. It appears that PSG have given up on making the Spaniard their next boss, fearing Chelsea have all but done the deal.

Should he arrive at Stamford Bridge in the summer, he`ll be hoping it`s a Champions League team he`s inheriting. As far as Abramovich is concerned that has to be this season`s goal.

Conte has looked far from happy this season, in fact, he has the look of a man on his way out. He probably already knows his fate, but he`ll want to leave on a high. An FA Cup win coupled with 4th spot will equate to a good season after all that has gone on this term.

There`ll be no shortage of takers for Conte as he heads off into the sunset, PSG, Juventus, Inter and the Italian national side will all be vying for his expertise.

Enrique has enjoyed a year`s sabbatical after leaving the Camp Nou at the end of last season. Should he take on the challenge of managing Chelsea he`ll have the tougher task of trying to manage those who are supposed to managing him. If he can conquer that, the world`s his oyster.

  • Last i heard he wanted the Arsenal gig. however is a really going to take the role of coach?, and have to deal with a mercurial owner, and a dance major from MSU. Even though i do not care for him, he was a triple winning manager at Barca, coming to us as a subservient coach seems like a downgrade . The reason i prefer Carlo is that he has been down this path before, and knows how to navigate the often treacherous waters of our boardroom .If this happens i bet he will be out by the end of next season at the latest .

  • I would have liked to see Conte continue but he really messed up after the Atletico game when he decided to go into moaning about fixture congestion and transfer mode. However, if truly there will be a new manager next season, I only hope whoever it is can consider Frank Lampard on his technical bench, there will be some sort of identity to the club.

  • All of our problems start in midfield and finish with Cahill and Courtois. The next manager has to solve that.
