Chelsea are re-thinking their plans to bring in Luis Enrique next season due to the former Barcelona coach's contract demands. 

According to The Telegraph, Luis Enrique wants a wage similar to what he was earning at Camp Nou to replace Antonio Conte at Stamford Bridge. 

The British newspaper say Luis Enrique is the ideal appointment because he's been learning English and has a desire to test himself in the Premier League. 

However, one of the problems which has come up in the negotiations is his wage demands. 

Apparently, the former Spain international wants around 16.5 million pounds per season, which is almost double the 9.5 million earned by Conte. 

It would even see him earning more than Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola and Manchester United's Jose Mourinho. 

Conte's the best-paid manager in Chelsea's history and the club do not want to go above that, which could see them turn to former Borussia Dortmund coach Thomas Tuchel or Napoli's Maurizio Sarri. 

Meanwhile, Luis Enrique has also been linked with Paris Saint-Germain in the case that Unai Emery leaves the French club in the summer.
