Chelsea are considering replacing the recently departed Jose Mourinho with former Real Madrid and Tottenham Hotspur manager Juande Ramos, according to reports from the Independent.
Chelsea wielded the axe on manager Jose Mourinho on Thursday night following the Blues’ terrible start to the season and the club hierarchy have been very active in their search the right candidate to replace the 52-year old.
The likes of Guus Hiddink, Carlo Ancelotti, Brendan Rodgers and Antonio Conte have all been mentioned as potential targets for Chelsea but now according to reports from the Independent, claims have been made that the Blues are considering a shock swoop for Juande Ramos.
Previously at Sevilla and Real Madrid, Ramos has been without a job since his departure from Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk back in 2014. Chelsea are looking for a short term option till the end of the season and are said to be open to appointing the Spaniard.
However it remains to be seen whether the potential arrival of Ramos will be well received by the Chelsea faithful due to his previous allegiance with rivals Tottenham Hotspur.
