Van Basten eager to hear from Chelsea owner Abramovich

Marco van Basten is keen to hear from Chelsea.

The Blues are on the lookout for a new manager after Carlo Ancelotti's two-year reign came to an end on Sunday following a trophyless campaign.

Sky Sports News says sources close to Van Basten say he is interested in any serious job offer, not necessarily from a big club in a big competition, but it is believed there has been no contact from Chelsea since Ancelotti's departure.

Van Basten has been connected with Sporting Lisbon but it is understood there is no pre-contract agreement with the Portuguese club, paving the way for any Chelsea approach.
