However, this is only going to happen if the club offers £200m war-chest guarantee, a prime voice in the recruitment process, and that Eden Hazard is going to stay in the club.
Since the Frenchman left reigning European League champions Real Madrid, he has been out of job although he was linked with Manchester United before the club hired Ole Solskjaer.
The Frenchman would undoubtedly be welcomed to Stamford Bridge with open arms by the club's hierarchy after the wealth of success he achieved in charge of Real Madrid in just two and a half seasons, if they do decide to let go of their current manager Maurizio Sarri in the near future.
Chelsea will reportedly only be able to persuade Zinedine Zidane to replace Maurizio Sarri as manager if the club ties Eden Hazard down to a new long-term contract and provides a £200m transfer budget with which to build a team around the Belgian star.

Harry Kane back in training on return from ankle injury
Who's going to decide in the end is myself, with my coaching staff and the doctor and medical staff too. Maybe he's going to be available to be part of the squad for Saturday.
SunSport revealed, last week, that Chelsea's top brass wanted Zidane, who has won the Champions League three times as manager and once as a player at Real Madrid.
However, Zidane's demands could well scupper the deal as we know Abramovich enjoys a huge say in transfer dealings and how the playing staff is recruited, so a Zidane-Abramovich pairing could be far from a match made in heaven.
But for Zidane to succeed Sarri, he would need his wishes to be met. The third and most important condition put forward by the World Cup victor is that he gets to keep Eden Hazard in west London amid rumours of the Belgium global potentially heading to Real Madrid.
