Didier Deschamps could become the new manager of Chelsea if Carlo Ancelotti is sacked this summer, reports talkSPORT.
The Italian managers' inability to make The Blues competitive in the Premier League and Champions League this season could lead to his exit this summer.
And being prepared as his potential replacement is former Chelsea man Didier Deschamps, who played for the club for a year in 2000, winning the FA Cup for the club during his stay.
The World Cup winner is currently managing Marseille and took on Manchester United in the first knock-out round of the Champions League earlier in the season.
If he made the move to Stamford Bridge, he is sure to be given plenty of money to sopped, with Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich reportedly willing to splash out again on players.
Among those players being look at by Chelsea are Javier Pastore, Sergio Aguero and Gary Cahill as the west-Londoners look to bounce back from a disappointing season.
