The search for Conte’s replacement continues and the Blues are now linked with a shocking move for Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers in the summer according to report.
The former Liverpool manager has been largely successful throughout his stay with the Scottish giants but he might make a return to the Premier League next season.
In his first season at Celtic, the manager was unbeaten in the Scottish league until he was crowned the Champions.
Brendan Rodgers was José Mourinho’s assistant in his first season at Stamford Bridge but he had to move out of the team to Swansea where he performed brilliantly before heading to Anfield stadium.
Chelsea have been linked with other three managers including Luis Enrique, Carlo Ancelotti and Unai Emery as they are hoping to find a perfect replacement for Conte ahead of the 2018-19 season.
According to the Express, the treble-winning manager could be the next manager at Stamford Bridge should he accepts Chelsea’s for his signature in the summer.
Meanwhile, Arsenal are also interested in hiring Rodgers as they are reportedly set to partway with Arsene Wenger who has performed below par this term.
The Frenchman saw his chances of retaining his job beyond this season crumbled earlier today when his men lost at home to Newcastle despite leading by 1-0 in the first 20 minutes of the game.
Hiring Rodgers ahead of next season could turn out to be a perfect one for the Gunners as they hope to return to the standard they are known to be when the 2018-19 season begins.
