Conte and Chelsea Owner, Abrahimovic

Chelsea boss, Antonio Conte will be sacked by the Blues in the next 48 hours according to reports by Daily Star.

The Italian gaffer is set to leave Stamford Bridge despite winning the FA Cup over the weekend.

The Blues defeated Manchester United 1-0 at Wembley to make it two trophies in two years at the club for the Italian after last year’s Premier League title win. 

Despite his impressive trophy haul, Conte will be dismissed by the Blues following their fourth-place finish and Daily Star believes he will be dismissed in less than 48 hours. 

Conte, 48, is currently in Italy for Andrea Pirlo's testimonial, meaning news from Chelsea about his exit may not emerge until Tuesday.

The Chelsea manager has repeatedly clashed with top brass at the west London club over their transfer strategy since last summer.

Conte will leave with a £9m compensation payment, which is likely to be paid weekly for the final year of his contract until he gets another job elsewhere. 

Luis Enrique, who is ready to return to football after taking a year out after leaving Barcelona 12 months ago, is a strong contender for the Chelsea job. Leonardo Jardim, of Monaco, and Napoli’s Maurizio Sarri are other potential replacements.

Appointing Sarri may have the dual boost for Chelsea of freeing up a job for Conte. Conte would likely be a contender for the Napoli job if Sarri heads to London.

And that would mean they could stop paying Conte the £9m he is owed for the final year of his contract.

Niko Kovac is taking the Bayern Munich job, Max Allegri is staying at Juventus and Zinedine Zidane could keep his post at Real Madrid if they see off Liverpool in the Champions League final.

A return to the Italian national team manager's chair for now is also out of the question following Roberto Mancini's appointment.
