After a tumultuous opening couple of weeks at Chelsea, it looks like Antonio Conte may become the first causality as the Chelsea higher ups are already looking at a replacement for the Italian.
Antonio Conte’s arrival as the new Chelsea manager was met much fan fare last summer. The new Chelsea boss had come in with a sterling reputation as a coach for Juventus and the Italian national side.

His Juventus team created history as they dominated the Serie A during his time at the helm. He then took charge of the Italian national team that performed exceedingly well at last summer’s Euros.
But a less than impressive start cast doubts over his tenure. Something did not seem right as the nadir of the season was Chelsea’s 3-0 drubbing at Arsenal. Conte seemed disconsolate after the loss and Chelsea fans were worried that the season was not going yield any success.
But a change in formation and personnel, was the key as Chelsea collectively clicked into gear and never looked back.
For Chelsea fans, this summer’s transfer window has so far been a huge let down, as they have watched their rivals make marquee signings while their own team struggled to get their targets.
The Lukaku transfer fiasco was embarrassing, while their failure to get Morata has also been a major blow to their transfer plans.
Reports had emerged that Conte was considering his future at the club, as he did not feel that he was getting enough support from the top brass.
But Chelsea managed to get Conte to sign an improved contract which will keep him at the club for two more years.
It was not an extension, but simply an improved contract on the one that he originally signed last year.
But the Chelsea do not like the way Conte has been publicly condemning the way the club is being run.
So much so that they have contacted Thomas Tuchel over the possibility of joining Chelsea. The former Borussia Dortmund coach is currently looking for a job and would be interested in coming to Chelsea.
Wonder what Conte would say about this?
