Bookies have slashed odds on Celtic’s Brendan Rodgers on taking over as Chelsea manager, with current Blues boss Antonio Conte’s future looking increasingly uncertain.
Conte has openly spoke about his desire to return to Italy in recent weeks, and the club’s recent 1-0 defeat at home to Manchester City badly hurt their chances of retaining the Premier League title.
That has led to speculation that Roman Abramovich could be forced to find a replacement before the end of the season – and bookmakers seem to think Rodgers – who was previously a youth-team coach at Stamford Bridge – would be in the reckoning.
