Report: Ex-Barca Boss Enrique 'Agrees Deal' To Replace Chelsea Manager Conte

Luis Enrique looks ready to replace Antonio Conte as Chelsea manager with a report in Spain suggesting the former Barcelona boss has already agreed personal terms.

Conte's position in the Blues hotseat has become increasingly unstable in recent weeks after losing his last two Premier League games to Bournemouth and Watford by an aggregate score of 7-1.

Whilst there is no sign yet that Conte is about to be sacked, Spanish outlet Sport claim that Chelsea officials want to hand 47-year-old Enrique a two-and-a-half-year contract until the summer of 2020.

Enrique, who has also managed Roma and Celta Vigo, is available immediately after leaving Barcelona last summer.

While in charge at the Nou Camp he led Barca to two La Liga titles, a trio of Copa del Rey triumphs and glory in the 2015 UEFA Champions League final.

One of Enrique's first games as Chelsea boss could be against Barca, who visit Stamford Bridge on February 20, before completing their Champions League last-16 tie in Catalonia on March 14.

If the reports are to be believed, he’ll replace Conte in the very near future.
