The Chelsea fans are competing in a darts tournament in the Football Transfer Tavern this afternoon, and are discussing reports that a new manager could be named imminently.
The Telegraph is reporting that Roman Abramovich is to meet up with Antonio Conte in the next seven days to seal the deal for him to become the next manager of Chelsea.
With talks expected to be pretty straightforward it should be just a case of wages and length of contract between the two parties.
Conte has been Abramovich’s top target throughout his search for a new manager and unless the Italian talks himself out of the job, it is set to happen.
The Italian is thought to want to bring his own coaching staff but according to reports, Abramovich wants Steve Holland to stay as part of the first team staff, and wants a place found for Chelsea legend Didier Drogba amongst the staff.
The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are delighted that talks are going to commence with Conte and look forward to the appointment of the proven winner at their club in the coming weeks!
Our landlord has to agree with the Blues fans, and feels Conte will be the breath of fresh air that the west London outfit need, and feels he will help make Chelsea serious title contenders once again next season.
Chelsea fans….. Happy with this news? Is Conte the right man? Let us know below!
