Di Matteo could quit Chelsea over short-term deal

Chelsea’s Champions League winning manager Roberto Di Matteo could quit the club if he is only offered a one-year contract to stay at Stamford Bridge, the Daily Mail has reported. The former Blues midfielder, who has now won the FA Cup as both player and manager with Chelsea, will hold out for a long-term offer instead.

It has been suggested that Di Matteo could be given a short-term deal to guide the club until former Barcelona manager Pep Guardiola is ready to return to football from his self-imposed exile, but the newspaper reports that Di Matteo does not find the prospect of being effectively the club’s caretaker boss for another year appealing.

The Mail adds that Di Matteo has been linked to the vacant Aston Villa managerial position, a rumour strengthened since the 41-year-old still has a home in the Midlands as a legacy of his time as West Bromwich Albion manager.
