Chelsea are unbeaten in the Premier League under Guus Hiddink since reviving his role as first team manager in December, but that hasn't stopped the rumours and speculation as to who might be preparing to take over the helm at Stamford Bridge for the start of next season. Those with Chelsea tickets will be eager to see who will be at the Bridge come next season. 

With high caliber managerial names being bandied about, Hiddink will surely feel his second stint as interim boss will be at an end come May, despite being well regarded by fans and players.Let's take a glance at the leading potential targets:

Massimiliano Allegri - The Turin based fans with Juventus tickets have tassted tasted success under their manager, winning the 2014/15 Italian league and cup domestic double, alongside an appearance in the Champions League Final, ultimately finishing runners up to Barcelona. Said to be a fan of the Premier League, and now regarded by many as one of the five best coaches in the world, he would make an promising appointment.

Diego Simeone - The Argentine manager of Atletico Madrid has established a strong reputation of building a well organised squad who are more than capable of upsetting their more illustrious Madrid neighbors. His English skills may need polishing, but his reputation alone gives fans with Chelsea Football Tickets a lot to think about.

Antonio Conte -  Currently managing the Italian national team, Antonio Conte has refused to discuss what his plans are after Euro 2016 following the revelation that he will step down once the tournament is over. This inevitably has drawn speculation that Chelsea are interested. His success as a player and manager at Juventus are is unrivaled and place him squarely as one of the favourites.

Events early in the season that set all this speculation in motion was of course Jose Mourinho's disastrous start. Some may still ask the question of whether the 'Special One' was dismissed too soon without a chance to turn things around. The revolving door of managers under the Abramovich era has made clear that failure isn't an option and so one can only wonder how long his next appointment will remain.
