Former Barcelona boss Luis Enrique to replace Conte, 'offered two-and-a-half-year deal'

Former FC Barcelona coach, Luis Enrique has been offered a two-and-a-half year deal to replace Antonio Conte as Chelsea manager, according to reports in Spain.
The former Barcelona boss has been out of work since leaving the Nou Camp last summer after a three-year stint in charge that saw him win two La Liga titles and a Champions League.
Conte is attempting to save his job after suffering a 4-1 defeat to Watford on Monday night, with Enrique a leading candidate to take over at Stamford Bridge.
The 47-year-old is negotiating with the champions, report Spanish newspaper Sport, and will sign a two-and-a-half-year contract once Conte is dismissed.
Should Roman Abramovich move quickly, Enrique could immediately face his former club as the Blues prepare to take on the Blaugrana in the last 16 of the Champions League.
The first leg takes place on February 20 at Stamford Bridge, with Lionel Messi and co. flying high in La Liga, nine points clear of their nearest rivals Atletico Madrid.

Napoli boss Maurizio Sarri has also been linked, with a £7.1m release clause likely to be attractive to clubs, and the Italian has delayed contract negotiations after president Aurelio De Laurentiis moved to remove his release clause.
