The possibilities of Antonio Conte leaving Chelsea at the end of the season is getting stronger by the day, especially after what Conte himself said as reported previously.

While Carlo Ancelotti has been reported as a possible replacement for Conte, British tabloid the Daily Mail reports that his replacement could be another Italian manager, namely Napoli's current coach Maurizio Sarri.

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has always wanted his team to play more entertaining and Sarri's particular brand of football prompted Man City manager Pep Guardiola to call Napoli "one of the most entertaining teams in Europe to watch" when the two sides met in the group stages of the Champions League.

Sarri is regarded "as a tactical and technical innovator who has a great impact on his players" the tabloid reports but the fact that he has never coached outside of Italy and that he is yet to win any silverware speaks against his candidacy.
