Tuesday Kickoff: Mourinho eyeing PSG, Inter moves; Sanchez wants a better contract; and more


Chelsea has had a rough start to the English Premier League season, and it appears as though its head coach is already lining up his next job.

With the London-based club sitting in 15th out of 20 teams on the EPL table, manager Jose Mourinho has begun to create a contingency plan in case he is fired from his position with Chelsea. According to ESPN FC, his representatives are looking into the possibility of a move to Paris Saint-Germain or Inter Milan.

Chelsea has only secured 11 points through ten games, which includes five Premier League losses. Club owner Roman Abramovich is willing to give Mourinho more time to turn results around and in the favor of the Blues, but if the Portuguese boss were to go, his first choice would be PSG.

Meanwhile, Carlo Ancelotti has been suggested as a replacement for Mourinho at Chelsea, with the Italian manager currently available after he was relieved from his duties at Real Madrid in May.

Here are some more news and notes:

In 10 EPL games for Arsenal this campaign, Sanchez has scored six times, but he is the third-highest earner, behind Ozil and Theo Walcott.

While Real Madrid has reportedly shown an interest in acquiring him, he apparently has no intention of leaving England for the time being.
