Chelsea considering YET ANOTHER former boss for vacant managerial role

The Blues are still searching for a new face in the dugout, but could consider an old one

Chelsea are reportedly considering a move for Real Madrid boss and former Blue Carlo Ancelotti as they weigh up their options ahead of appointing a permanent manager this summer.

The Blues parted ways with Graham Potter after just seven months at the helm, with the ex-Brighton man having led them to 11th in the Premier League.

A 2-0 defeat at home to Aston Villa proved the final straw, despite his side having more than enough chances to get a result from the game, and the Blues were booed off by those in the home crowd who had stayed until the end.

They have since appointed former failed manager and club legend Frank Lampard to the role, two years after he was sacked in favour of Thomas Tuchel, in what is an interim role until the end of the season.

But their hunt for a permanent boss is continuing, with Luis Enrique and Julian Nagelsmann among the candidates to be interviewed for the job in the coming weeks.

Determined to leave no stone unturned, there were also reports that the Blues had approached Antonio Conte (recently let go by Tottenham) as well as Jose Mourinho, both of whom had successful spells in charge at Stamford Bridge.

Long-linked with the Brazil national team job, Ancelotti was in charge of the Blues from 2009 to 2011, during which time he lifted a Premier League title and an FA Cup.
