Mancini ahead of Rijkaard to succeed Chelsea's Hiddink

Chelsea have a three-man shortlist for manager next season. The Sunday Mirror says Chelsea will select from a three-man short-list of Guus Hiddink, Frank Rijkaard and Roberto Mancini when they make a permanent managerial appointment this summer.

Caretaker coach Hiddink maintains he will leave and return to his post as Russia's national coach.

Although he is earning considerable favour among key Chelsea players and owner Roman Abramovich, they seemed resigned to his departure.

Mancini's prospects are gathering pace, with the Italian highly thought of inside Chelsea and rumours rife he is looking to buy a house in London.
