Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern have ordered a new round to celebrate news that suggests their managerial search has drawing to a close, with significant developments being reported.
Conte is the favourite to take charge of Chelsea this summer and it’s understood he’ll move into his new role after Italy’s campaign at the European Championships this summer.
With the finer details of the proposed contract still to be ironed out, Conte is expected to meet Roman Abramovich in London in the next week and an official confirmation of his appointment could follow.
Having achieved vast success during his time at Juventus, Conte is well equipped to club management but he has a major task ahead of him at Stamford Bridge- and our landlord doesn’t think it will be easy for him to make an immediate impact.
