Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is reportedly considering appointing Laurent Blanc as Antonio Conte’s successor.
Conte will be leaving Chelsea at the end of the season, that is now clear. His relationship with the board is at breaking point, and his defence of the Premier League title has been nothing short of pathetic.
Chelsea will not be playing Champions League football next season, and Conte has to answer for it. The question on everyone’s mind is – who will replace the Italian.
According to France Football (via the Metro), former France and PSG manager Laurent Blanc has emerged as a potential candidate to become the next Chelsea manager.
Blanc has been out of work since June 2016 after PSG chief Nasser Al-Khelaifi showed him the exit door.
However, if Abramovich gets his way, Blanc could be set to return to management after a two-year break.
As the Daily Mail reported back in 2014, Blanc publicly declared his interest in taking Eden Hazard to PSG. Four years on, he may finally be granted an opportunity to work alongside the Belgian.
Do you think Blanc is the right man to take Chelsea forward? Let us know in the comments.
