Chelsea are accelerating the hunt for a successor to Mauricio Sarri who is expected to join Juventus in the coming days and their former manager, Jose Mourinho is heavily linked to return despite the believe of many Chelsea faithfuls that this is the time for club-legend Frank Lampard.
Chelsea will demand a top-four finish from their new boss despite losing Eden Hazard to Real Madrid.
Fans’ choice Frank Lampard who is the coach of Derby County still remains the favourite to take over from Mauricio Sarri.
But the Stamford Bridge hierarchy are also considering managers with top-flight experience.
One More Time
Mourinho won three Premier League titles, three League Cups and the FA Cup during two spells totalling five years at Chelsea.
The Portuguese was axed for a second time in 2015 after a disastrous start to his title defence.
An ugly row with then-club doctor Eva Carneiro over her decision to treat Hazard during a 2-2 draw with Swansea created a toxic atmosphere before he was given the chop.
And despite taking up the role at rivals United the following year, SunSport understands he would seriously consider making a third return to Stamford Bridge.
Mourinho in March said he hoped to be back in club management this month.
Who will be the next Chelsea boss?
