A look at the best candidates to replace interim boss Rafael Benitez at Stamford Bridge next season.
1. Manuel Pellegrini
Pellegrini has done great work with Malaga after being somewhat harshly sacked by Real Madrid. He would appear to be Roman Abramovich’s first choice after rumours emerged that Chelsea had already opened talks with the Chilean tactician. However, Pellegrini himself recently stated that he was happy at Malaga. After a difficult time at Real, would he really want to face similar pressure at Chelsea, who have had nine managers in as many years?
