Premier League giants could swoop for Toffees manager.
After working wonders at Everton for the over a decade, David Moyes has been touted as the man to take over at one of England’s biggest clubs.
It has previously been assumed that the Scot will be the natural successor of Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United.
But with no signs of Sir Alex Ferguson retiring, the Daily Mirror reports that Moyes could be taking the helm at either Chelsea or Manchester City.
With Mancini’s tenure at City uncertain, and the managerial merry-go-round still continuing at Stamford Bridge, the Toffee’s manager could be tempted by a move to a bigger club.
Moyes might need some assurance that he will be given a fair chance at success at Chelsea, according to Mirror sources, and his lack of Champions League experience – barring a flirtation with the qualifying stages in 2005 – could see him lose out to other potential suitors.
The charismatic Jose Mourinho has been expressing his adoration for the Premier League in recent months and Abramovich could let ‘The Special One’ make a sensational move back to the Blues.
Other candidates for the Chelsea role include Malaga’s Manuel Pellegrini and Borussia Dortmund’s Jurgen Klopp. Abramovich’s original target, Pep Guardiola, is set to start his new job at Bayern Munich at the start of next season.
Mancini’s future was plunged into further doubt yesterday following a shock defeat to Southampton. With the title slipping away and no chance of a Champions League title this year, the Italian’s number could be up at the Etihad.
