Former Barcelona coach Luis Enrique has agreed to replace Conte at Chelsea.
El Confidencial reports that Enrique has settled terms with Chelsea to succeed Antonio Conte at the end of this season.
They also suggested that Chelsea's board has run out of patience with Conte after his constant sniping this season over transfer policy.
The 47-year-old stepped down from Barca last summer and vowed to take a year off from football before returning to the game next term.
After working in Italy and Spain, Enrique has favoured a move to England - and recent reports coming from Spain suggest he will be the next manager of Chelsea.
The 47-year-old, who led Barcelona to their 5th Champions League title in 2015, has been tipped to replace troubled Antonio Conte at the Stamford Bridge this summer.
