Chelsea Are Lining Up Carlo Ancelotti To Take Over From Under-Fire Antonio Conte
But now the former Real Madrid boss is under the radar of Premier League clubs since he parted ways with the Bundesliga giants.
Both Leicester and Everton have been linked with Ancelotti recently with Craig Shakespeare and Ronald Foeman losing their jobs.
He has been heavily linked with moves to Everton and Leicester City with Ronald Koeman and Craig Shakespeare losing their jobs. The Foxes have appointed former Southampton boss Claude Puel as their new manager for the time being, but reports suggest that the Toffees have shown interest in landing the Italian at the Goodison Park.
But a move to his former club Chelsea looks very much possible with Ancelotti spotted at Stamford Bridge last week.
Ancelotti held the reins at Chelsea from 2009 to 2011and had guided the Blues to their first ever domestic double – winning the Premier League and the FA Cup.
And he had left the Blues with his head held high – boasting a win percentage which was the third-highest in Premier League history during that time – only behind Jose Mourinho and Sir Alex Ferguson.
Conte guided the Blues to Premier League triumph in his debut campaign in England last season, but Chelsea has failed to make a good start this campaign.
Reports suggest that Conte has been left frustrated and is angry with the board for failing to land his transfer targets this summer.
Antonio Conte is facing the ire of the Blues board following Chelsea’s poor start to the season.
The Italian’s performance is under boardroom scrutiny and according to reports the Blues bosses have grown tired of his excuses as Chelsea’s poor run continues.
And now with Conte’s future still in doubt, The Sun claim that the Chelsea bosses are ready bring back Ancelotti at Stamford Bridge.
The report claim that the Chelsea bosses are increasingly growing confident that Conte would not be able to see out his 20 months at Stamford Bridge and now they are lining up Ancelotti as his replacement.
According to reports, Ancelotti is keen to make a return to the Premier League and is ready to take up the Chelsea job despite being sacked by Roman Abramovich back in 2011.
