Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich could reportedly look to appoint Fabio Capello as manager should Andre Villas-Boas be sacked this summer.
AVB is fighting to save his job after seeing his side lose 2-0 at Everton on Saturday - a result which saw the Blues fall out of the Premier League top four.
The Portuguese was met with chants of "You don't know what you're doing" during the game as the pressure grows on the former Porto coach.
And according to The People, Abramovich, who has been at the club's Cobham training ground this past week, could consider a move for former England coach Capello.
According to Sunday's report, the defeat at Goodison Park could lead to Villas-Boas getting the boot before the end of the season, although it is widely thought that any sacking will come in May - especially if Chelsea fail to qualify for the Champions League.
Villas-Boas had insisted before Saturday's game that Abramovich was happy with things and that his appearances at training were not distracting.
During the match he was blasted by his own fans as he decided to take Michael Essien and Juan Mata off the pitch, while Everton supporters taunted him by singing "You’re getting sacked in the morning."
"That’s part of the job," he said afterwards.
"At the moment, we are fifth in the League and that’s not good enough. We took off Essien as we wanted to change the system."
As of Sunday morning, bookmakers Sky Bet made Capello third favourite to be installed as Chelsea's next manager, behind Barca coach Pep Guardiola and market leader Guus Hiddink.
