Chelsea are set to appoint Antonio Conte as their manager for next season. The Blues are expected to finalise the transfer next week.
According to reports, Chelsea have moved swiftly to secure the services of the Italian manager and he will replace Guus Hiddink as Mourinho’s long-term successor at Stamford Bridge next season.
The Italian is set to meet with the Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich according to reports from the English media.
Conte is expected to earn around £14.25m (£100,000 per week) during his three-year contract with the Premier League giants.
The former Juventus manager would be a fantastic addition for the Blues. Chelsea are in need of someone who can rebuild their side and Conte fits the profile perfectly.
Although Hiddink has done well since taking over from the Chelsea fan favourite Jose Mourinho, the Dutchman is expected to leave at the end of the season.
Conte has won 3 Serie A titles with Juventus and will be expected to take Chelsea back to the top of English football once again.
The Blues won the Premier League under Jose Mourinho last season.
Meanwhile, Diego Costa has been linked with a move away from Chelsea. The Spanish international could be on his way to PSG as a replacement for Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
