The Daily Mail is reporting that the Blues are set to consider Conte’s position at Stamford Bridge once again after the west London side suffered another disappointing blow to their hopes of finishing in the top four this season.
However, the same report says that the west London side are reluctant to sack Conte before the end of the season because it would mean that they would have to pay the Italian the remainder of his £9m a year deal.
For that reason, the same article claims that Chelsea FC are “reluctant” to fire Conte and would rather that the Italian left the club on the back of his own decision.
According to the same story, Conte would unlikely to be short of offers from other clubs should he leave Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea FC have struggled to produce consistent form all season after having won the Premier League title in style.
Their defeat by Tottenham and draw with West Ham last weekend has left Chelsea FC in fifth place and 10 points behind fourth-placed Spurs with just six games left to play this season.
Chelsea FC could still win the FA Cup this season and will take on Southampton in the semi-finals at Wembley later this month.
