More names have continued to pop up as likely replacement for under fire manager, José Mourinho at Chelsea.
The latest in the list of high profile coaches to be linked to the Blues is Italy boss, Antonio Conte.
Already, there are indications that the days of Mourinho at Stamford Bridge are now numbered even though he has so far survived the axe, despite the Blues’ poor season, which has left them two points above the relegation zone in the Premier League.
Earlier reports out of London claimed that Chelsea bosses will hold talks with Mourinho after their Champions League match against Porto on Wednesday night.
According to The Independent, Chelsea will try to poach Conte if they decide to sack Mourinho, who needs his side to earn at least a draw against Porto in order to progress into the last 16 of the European competition.
Conte’s contract as Italy boss expires in 2016 and the 46-year-old is expected to stay on to lead the team at the European Championships in France next summer.
