Silva has been linked with Chelsea as a potential candidate to help the Premier League Champions get back to winning ways and help the Stamford Bridge outfit finish in the top four

The short-term appointment of Silva if Conte is sacked will enable the board to find a suitable replacement for the Italian tactician.
