Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich and the rest of the club’s board were continuing to hold intense discussions about Jose Mourinho’s future on Wednesday with the manager’s future in serious doubt, ESPN FC is reporting.

Sources say Chelsea’s top officials met for nine hours on Tuesday following the 2-1 defeat to Leicester City on Monday night and that talks were continuing on Wednesday.

It was revealed that a vote will be taken on Mourinho’s future, although that will be used merely to guide the final decision, which will rest with Abramovich.

The Chelsea owner has been keen to retain the former Porto, Inter Milan and Real Madrid coach, but the Premier League champions’ continued poor form may lead him to reassess.

One source said there was a significant concern that “the squad have seemed to stop listening,” although there are some players who agree with Mourinho’s criticisms on Monday night, when he said he felt his “work was betrayed.”

Sources said the talks have been wide-ranging, covering everything from the state of the squad and January purchases to potential managerial replacements and the pay-off Mourinho will require in the event of a sacking.
