Given Chelsea’s current situation it might not actually be too long before Roman Abramovich cuts the strings tying Jose Mourinho to Stamford Bridge. If and when he does, the arrival of a new manager/superstar will be inevitable, even if they’re in short supply. In any case, the man potentially replacing the Special One probably won’t be Carlo Ancelotti, who is set to reportedly reject any SOS call from Abramovich concerning a temporary spell as boss and also has major reservations over a permanent position. Guus Hiddink would be open to it, according to the same sources, but whether or not Chelsea want him again remains to be seen. Meanwhile, Radamel Falcao’s English nightmare could be drawing to a close, with another former Chelsea boss ready to give him a chance elsewhere. Andre Villas-Boas is keen to take the Colombia international to Zenit St. Petersburg in January. We can only assume Mourinho - providing he’s still in charge - will be ready to let that specific deal happen.
