Abramovich, Conte Agree To Part Ways

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich and manager Antonio Conte have both agreed to part ways, report says.

Corriere dello Sport says Abramovich has held crisis talks with Conte, telling him his service will no longer be needed at the end of the season.

The Blues manager is in the second of a three-year deal, but tension has grown between Conte and the board over complaints about transfer policy.

Juventus coach Max Allegri has been linked with Conte’s job this week, as has Carlo Ancelotti. Former Chelsea manager Ancelotti returned to London after his sacking by Bayern Munich.
