According to the English press, the management of Chelsea have made contact with Luis Enrique to deal with a possible departure of Antonio Conte.
Despite the title of champion of England acquired in his first season across the Channel, Antonio Conte could not continue his adventure at Chelsea. It is rumored that the technician Italian would be cold with his officers because of a dispute about the mercato. Conte would have required Romelu Lukaku as a rookie, but its decision-makers are reluctant to pay 90M€ requested by Everton for the international belgian.

Within the “board” of the Blues, it will work now to calm tensions, but while working to deal with any eventuality. Thus, if one believes the daily newspaper The Independent, in its edition of Saturday, Roman Abramovitch has already started work on the question of a successor to Conte. And he would think of as a priority to Luis Enrique.
The coach catalan is free since his departure from Barca at the end of last season. With the exception of his salary, Chelsea will not have to make huge expenditures to enlist. In addition, this option presents an advantage : at Stamford Bridge, the Spaniard will be greeted by several of his compatriots (Azpilicueta, Fabregas, Diego Costa, Mikel Alonso). Remains to be seen whether this track is serious and if Luis Enrique is ready to make a cross on his sabbatical to take over as early as this summer for a big european club.
