Grant held crunch Chelsea talks with agent

Avram Grant has held talks about his future at Chelsea in the past week, it has been revealed.

The Independent says though Grant maintained last week that he did not need any reassurances beyond his four-year contract, he talked to his agent Pini Zahavi on Friday evening about his future.

While, according to sources, Blues owner Roman Abramovich appears to have decided as early as the FA Cup exit to Barnsley in March that Grant might not be the right "manager" to take Chelsea forward there has always remained the chance that he could change his mind, especially as he likes the relaxed relationship he has with Jose Mourinho's successor.

Sources at the club say that Grant could save his job if he won either the Premier League title or the European Cup or came close with a "glorious failure".
