Chelsea appear to be on the verge of agreeing a deal to replace Antonio Conte as manager.

Conte won the Premier League title during his debut season at Stamford Bridge, but like compatriot Carlo Ancelotti, has been unable to launch a successful defence to his crown.

After a major deterioration in his relationship with the club’s board, Conte now appears to be heading for the Stamford Bridge exit door.

According to Le Parisien, the West London side are on the verge of pointing former Barcelona manager Luis Enrique as manager.

Enrique proved his managerial credentials during his time at the Camp Nou and looks to have captured the imagination of Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich.

It is claimed that PSG were previously keen on appointing Enrique, but they now see he moved to Chelsea as a foregone conclusion.

Only time will tell if Le Parisien’s report has any authenticity.
