Reports: Chelsea To Sack Antonio Conte, Replacement Lined up

By Keegan Kruger - Aug 23, 2017 05:00 PM @KeeganKruger

Reigning Premier League champions Chelsea are reportedly ready to sack Antonio Conte and have already lined up a suitable substitute.

Chelsea Target Shock EPL Duo?

According to SportBild, the Blues are working on appointing former Mainz and Borussia Dortmund boss Thomas Tuchel as their next manager.

The report suggested that the 43-year-old, who left BVB at the end of last season, is ready to return to management after an extended family holiday.

The English club is said to have lost patience with Conte over the past couple of weeks, and are looking for ways to dismiss the animated tactician.

The German publication also claimed that owner Roman Abramovich and director Marina Granovskaia have had enough of the Italian's attitude towards how the club is currently run.

"Granovskaia, who is considered to be the most powerful woman in world football, has apparently already been informed about Tuchel in detail and has decided on him as a new Chelsea coach," the report read.

"The relationship between the hard lady and the stubborn coach is more than tense. From England, it can be seen that Conte has no more direct line to his boss. She wants Tuchel.

"The Russian doesn't mind the fact that it isn't easy. She is not looking for a buddy for joint pub visits, but a new successful trainer. Tuchel would be interested."

Mkhitaryan & Alonso Star In EPL Team of the Week

Conte has been critical of the club's lack of activity in the transfer window this season, and has asked the board to sign more players on more than on occasion.

Do you think the former Juventus boss will still be Chelsea manager at the end of the 2017/18 campaign? Have your say in the comments section below.
