Report making the round, claims Chelsea have open talks in signing Luis Enrique this summer as a replacement for Antonio Conte who has been tipped to leave the Stamford Bridge.

The former Barcelona man have emerged as their new manager target with report in Spain claiming a deal could be announced in the “next few days”.

A three-year deal could reportedly be struck in the coming days.

Stamford Bridge bosses sensationally pulled the plug on a deal with Maurizio Sarri yesterday amid concerns over his behaviour.

But Sport report a deal for Enrique, 48, is now back on and he could be appointed within the coming days.

Chelsea supporters hope he can lead them back to the Champions League after a season in the Europa League.

Conte is still Chelsea manager as things stand, it is almost certain he will leave after a difficult season — despite winning the FA Cup.
