Sevilla manager Jorge Sampaoli has claimed he was in negotiations with Chelsea before he took the Sevilla job.

“There were a lot of teams interested but the call came from Monchi and for us it was very interesting and exciting, we were also in negotiations with Chelsea,” Sampaoli is quoted by Daily Mirror.

Roman Abramovich reportedly opted for Antonio Conte because he wanted a coach with a basic knowledge of English.

Conte has Chelsea currently eight point clear at the summit of the Premier League while Sampaoli has turned Sevilla into title contenders in the La Liga.
