Conte and his side comfortably won the Premier League and captured the heart of many football fans but it has been a completely different story this season.
They are currently sat in fifth place and it is almost impossible for them to finish in the top four this campaign, with there an 8-point gap between them and 4th placed Tottenham after their loss to Mauricio Pochettino’s side today.
Now, former Chelsea star Vialli has claimed after the defeat to Spurs that Conte ‘can’t wait to leave’ the club.
Speaking on Sky Sports Italia, he claimed:
‘Conte can’t wait to leave Chelsea.’
‘He can’t stand that they sell or buy players without consulting him. The truth is, Chelsea would like a manager who is more of a club man.’
‘If Conte is released, it’s entirely possible he could return to the Italy bench, which remains vacant.’
‘Whether it’s the Nazionale or Paris Saint-Germain, he’ll find a place where he can start winning something important again. There will be a queue of contracts for him to sign.’

Wherever Conte goes, Chelsea must find a new boss that can take them back to the top of the Premier League next season or at least the top four.
Luis Enrique is currently favourite to succeed Conte on Sky Bet with odds of 5/6 with Thomas Tuchel at 5/1 and Carlo Ancelotti at 7/1.
