Chelsea set to target Zidane after shock Madrid exit

  Chelsea set to target Zidane after shock Madrid exit Chelsea are reportedly set to try and convince outgoing Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane to make the move to West London and take charge at Stamford Bridge. The decision of Zidane to leave Real Madrid after an incredibly successful three years at the helm shocked many fans and pundits alike, and despite saying he isn’t looking to manage another team just yet, the Daily Mail report Chelsea will seek to change his mind. With Maurizio Sarri now thought to no longer be the de facto replacement to current manager Antonio Conte, other names like Laurent Blanc and Avram Grant have entered the ring. Indeed, as of the time of writing, Conte is still in charge at Chelsea. With the holidaying director Marina Granovskaia returning to London next week, the termination of the Italian’s contract is expected then. Zidane won the Champions League at every attempt with Los Blancos, and finished the 2016/17 La Liga season at the top of the pile. The Frenchman said upon the conclusion of his press conference where he announced his resignation, “I’m not going to coach another team right now.” “I’m not looking for another team.” Roman Abramovich has recently withdrawn plans to expand Stamford Bridge in protest at ongoing visa issues, but the twisting of Zidane’s arm to take another management job would be a move of considerable intent to return Chelsea to Champions League glory.

Departed Napoli boss Maurizio Sarri was targeted by a deal broke down for the Italian. This has led Chelsea to consider options such as Laurent Blanc and Slavisa Jokanovic, whilst Luis Enrique was also recently linked once again.

  David Luiz reportedly keen for Laurent Blanc to join Chelsea According to a report from the Telegraph, Chelsea defender David Luiz is hopeful that the club opt to replace Antonio Conte with Laurent Blanc. The Blues are actively searching for a new manager ahead of next season, with the club’s hierarchy having grown frustrated by Conte’s shortcomings in recent times. Maurizio Sarri was targeted following his dismissal from Napoli but it appears as though this deal will be difficult to close. Therefore, Chelsea have identified former PSG chief Blanc as a ‘Plan B’, with a deal for the Frenchman seemingly the more feasible option. Luiz worked under Blanc during his time at PSG and if the Telegraph are to be believed, the Brazilian is more than open to the prospect of playing under him again. Conte’s frosty relationship with Luiz has been well documented over recent times and it seems the defender’s future at Chelsea is in doubt as long as the Italian is at the helm. However, with a manager such as Blanc in charge, it seems Luiz’s position at Chelsea could be rather more secure.

Conte still has a year to run on his contract at Chelsea but this does not appear to have deterred Real in their interest.

In fact, the Blues’ board may welcome Los Blancos’ pursuit of Conte as they would be forced to buy the Italian out of his contract, meaning Chelsea will need to pay their manager no compensation for any potential dismissal.
