Jose Mourinho may still be the Chelsea manager, but his representatives are already putting plans in place should the worst happen.
A report in Monday's Mirror would have you believe that a loss against Liverpool on Saturday will seal his fate and leave Roman Abramovich searching for the 12th manager of his Stamford Bridge reign.
And with a potential touchline ban hanging over his head, it seems the Special One is not feeling particularly confident of rescuing the deteriorating situation in west London.

If ESPN journalist Miguel Delaney is to be believed, Mourinho's representatives have already contacted officials at Paris Saint-Germain and Inter Milan to ask about the possibility of taking charge.
The contact is believed to be a contingency plan just in case Chelsea do indeed decide to part ways with the Portuguese, but it hints that he is closer to the exit door than any report has suggested.
Preference for Paris
Mourinho's top choice for his next destination would be Paris as a return to Inter Milan may only serve to damage his legacy while every top club in England and Spain is seemingly off limits.
A move to PSG would almost certainly guarantee him his fifth domestic title in five different countries, drawing himself level with Tomislav Ivic; the only manager to achieve the feat.
The Qatari-owned outfit are currently under the stewardship of Laurent Blanc, but the former France international has also been deemed dispensable if a top-class name like Mourinho offers himself up.
