Chelsea made a huge statement of intent when they sacked the most successful manger in their history after a dismal start to the 2015-16 campaign.

Guus Hiddink was chosen for the job at the helm of the London franchise but on a temporary basis and there have been several top class managers linked with the job at the end of the season.

Recent reports have now come up with a shocking rumor that the Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is pondering over a move for Leicester City boss Claudio Ranieri to replace Hiddink at the end of the season.

The Italian manager was sacked after just a season with the Blues back in 2004 and has since managed a number of top clubs across Europe. He was at Valencia, Parma, Juventus, Roma, Inter Milan, Monaco and Greece before joining Leicester last summer.

Ranieri has had a breakthrough season this term as he has done wonders with the Leicester City side who avoided relegation on the last day of the last season.


The Foxes are currently at the top of the table enjoying a great run of form and it is understood that his work with Leicester City has not gone un-noticed as Abramovic is on the verge of opening talks with the Italian to move to London for the soon-to-be-vacant Chelsea managerial post.

Ranieri has not only been able to rule the Premier League this season, he is a calming influence on any squad by nature and will be a welcome change at Chelsea after all the antics of the previous manager Jose Mourinho.

Though one season with a club facing no other challenges is not enough to judge the manager, the way he has got Leicester grinding results out will surely attract a lot of job offers and Chelsea want to be the first ones to snap him up.

Will Ranieri leave Leicester for a job in London?
