- Former Blues boss Carlo Ancelotti is favorite to replace under fire Chelsea boss Antonio Conte
- Ancelotti who recently got sacked by Bayern Munich managed Chelsea for two years before he was sacked
- Conte and the Chelsea board have been at logger heads for lots of reasons this season
The Chelsea hierarchy do not expect Antonio Conte to see out the remaining 20 months of his contract and have already started planning for his exit.
Ancelotti is willing to resume his career in the Premier League after being sacked by Bayern Munich despite winning the Bundesliga in his first season in charge.
The former Ac Milan manager bears no ill thoughts towards Chelsea's owner Roman Abramovich, who fired him in 2011 after finishing second in the League having won a title and FA Cup double a year previously.
Ancelotti has kept in touch with Chelsea executives during his time at Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern.
He spent the last few days in London catching up with friends and it is understood he is aware of the interest in reappointing him at Chelsea.
The 58-year-old has gotten interest from Everton and the Chinese Super League but he might be ready to turn down those club for a possible return to Chelsea.
