Chelsea is currently in jeremiad plight, just suffered the fifth defeat in the premier league and suffered a loss in every other competition as well. After the Eva Carneiro fallout and strong reports of Jose Mourinho losing the Chelsea dressing room, the rumour mill went berzerk with “Mourinho getting the sack” buzz. Now, the very reliable SKY ITALIA is reporting that Former Juventus and current Italy manager Antonio Conte could take over at Chelsea in the event of Mourinho’s dismissal. The Italian website Calciomercato claims that Chelsea has contacted the Italy coach. Conte will be out of contract next summer, after Euro 2016. He won three successive Serie A titles with Juventus from 2011 to 2014. The Italian has also driven Italy to the Euro 2016 finals as group toppers. He is a very good manager, but his alleged involvement in match-fixing remains a worry. 

Italian newspaper La Gazzetta Dello Sport also reporting that Chelsea wants to replace Jose Mourinho with Italy national team boss Antonio Conte. But, according to reliable Belfast telegraph, former Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is in the frame to take over Chelsea. Rodgers was an assistant of Mourinho at Chelsea in Portuguese’s first stint. Belfast Telegraph has written, Rodgers is “now in the frame” to take over at CFC, where he previously worked under Mourinho at Stamford Bridge. Belfast Telegraph has reported that Brendan Rodgers odds of becoming the next Chelsea boss slashed from 20/1 to just 7/1. In Paddy Power betting website, Conte is 14/1 to become next Chelsea manager, with Guardiola still favourites, 4/1. Whether Chelsea indeed sack Mourinho with $30million pay off remains to be seen. But, replacing Mourinho with Conte or Rodgers will be a serious downgrade.
