The transfer window has begun and several clubs across Europe are looking to bolster their squad ahead of the new season.
However the mood at Stamford Bridge is different as the club are bracing for huge departures this summer despite the FIFA transfer ban placed on the club. Star player Eden Hazard has left the club for a big money move to Real Madrid while manager Maurizio Sarri is expected to sign for Juventus in the coming weeks.
In what would be a merry-go-round of managers, former Juventus boss Max Allegri could be on his way to Stamford Bridge. The 51-year-old agreed on a mutual consent to end his stint at Juventus after five trophy laden years in charge of the Turin giants.
Italian sources claim that the Italian tactician has begun taking English lessons as he gears up for what could be his next destination in England.
Allegri is considered the second favourite to land the Blues managerial job after former Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard. However Lampard is just a year into his managerial career and the Chelsea job may have come too soon for the Englishman.
Allegri is the safer and more experienced option with his track record of success at AC Milan and Juventus in the past decade.
It is too early to predict who could be the man at the dugout in Stamford Bridge next season but expect lots of twists and turns as the transfer window unfolds.
