ANTONIO CONTE is a shock contender for the Barcelona job. The Chelsea manager looks poised to sign a new contract with the Blues. He’s led the west London club 10 points clear at the top of the Premier League and into the quarter-finals of the FA Cup. Owner Roman Abramovich is desperate to tie down the Italian longterm. “Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is a shock name in the frame for the Barcelona job” Sky Sports say a new contract could be sorted ‘within days’. But they add Conte is in the frame for Barcelona too. Luis Enrique is leaving the Nou Camp in the summer after three seasons in charge. And Conte is ‘believed’ to be one of the contenders to replace him, although at this stage is not a top target. Inter and AC Milan also both want the ex-Juventus and Italy coach. Meanwhile, MAX ALLEGRI is the favourite to take the Arsenal job from Arsene Wenger. Arsene Wenger is under huge amounts of pressure after Arsenal were demolished 5-1 again by Bayern Munich on Tuesday night. More and more fans are beginning to call for his head and it seems as though the Frenchman will be off this summer. The Gunners were out of the Champions League at the last-16 stage for the seventh successive season.
