It has been revealed just how much money Chelsea would have to pay Antonio Conte if they sacked the Italian (via The Mirror).
Historically, Chelsea don’t have a good history of sticking with managers when the team isn’t performing well.
It’s no secret that the Blues have had a staggering eleven different permanent bosses since Claudio Ranieri left the club in 2004.
Despite winning the Premier League last season, the pressure is mounting on Antonio Conte this term.
The Blues have been linked with the former FC Barcelona boss, Luis Enrique but there is one major stumbling block.
It has been revealed that Chelsea would have to an incredible £26.7 million in severance pay should they decide to sack Conte.
It’s a ridiculous sum of money just to change managers and it certainly casts some doubt of whether or not it is something the club should pursue. Things aren’t working for Conte right now but for that sum of money, is it worth gambling on a new manager?
