Former Chelsea star in contention to replace Conte - FCNaija

PSG is set to do away with manager Unai Emery as they are now eyeing up Chelsea boss, Antonio Conte.

Conte has been tipped for the Stamford Bridge exit in the summer, while Emery is also expected to leave PSG at the end of the season, after failing to lead the French giants to Champions League glory, according to reports.

Chelsea boss Conte features prominently on the list of candidates to replace Emery, but so also is Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino - who used to play for PSG – and is highly regarded in the French capital.

However, it is not just PSG who want Conte, with the Italian Football Federation (FIGC) also keen to have the former Juventus midfielder return as manager, following their failure to qualify for the World Cup.
