The 2018-19 season for Chelsea began with a new manager being appointed, Maurizio Sarri. Sarri is known for his beautiful possession-based game, and his fluent and attacking style of football.

It was a great start for him, as the team put in some amazing performances at the start of the season. They were unbeaten for 13 league games, and it looked like the management had made the perfect hire.

But after those initial positive results, it has been a roller coaster ride for the team. They were in the top 4 for most of the season and now they have slipped down to the 6th position.

The London outfit were recently thrashed 6-0 by Manchester City and were also dumped out of the FA Cup by Manchester United last night.

Since then, the rumor mill has been buzzing that Chelsea are going to give the Italian tactician the sack, and that Zinedine Zidane is the front runner to take over the job at Stamford Bridge.

Here, we look at five reasons why Zidane could be great for the team and take them back to the top 4.

#5 New manager, new demands

As per recent reports, Zidane is leading the race for becoming the new manager of Chelsea. But he has raised some conditions if the club want him to be their manager; he has reportedly asked for reinforcements for the squad.

Chelsea currently lack world-class players; only Eden Hazard and N'Golo Kante seem to fit that bill. In case Zidane joins, he will surely ask to spend and sign some great players to get Chelsea back on track.

According to the sources, Zidane has asked around $200m to be spent on the Chelsea squad.
