Chelsea part ways with manager Antonio Conte

Antonio Conte

With Sarri and Jorginho arriving from Napoli, Chelsea are reportedly looking to add to those signings with the likes of Daniele Rugani fron Juventus and World Cup star Aleksandr Golovin.

The Italian's position as Chelsea manager has been under threat for a number of months now, and he has been highly expected to be sacked ever since the curtain came down on the 2017/18 season.

Conte led Chelsea to the Premier League title in his first season in England in 2016-17 and followed up that achievement with the FA Cup triumph this year, but his relationship with the board became damaged beyond fix, highlighted by his repeated public and private complaints about transfer policy.

The club's 64-word announcement was eventually made on Friday (Saturday NZT), ending with: "We wish Antonio every success in his future career". However, Costa had a falling-out with Conte ahead of the 2017/18 season and he didn't play for the Blues again as he went AWOL in order to force a move to his former club Atletico Madrid.

The off-field controversies bled onto the pitch and the west Londoners flattered to deceive.

Conte won the Premier League title in his debut season following his spell as national team boss at Italy.

The chain smoking former Empoli manager - who will have to restrain himself on the touchline in England where smoking is banned - was named Serie A Coach of the Year in 2016-17.

Sarri, 59, led Napoli to two second-place and one third-place finish in three seasons in charge.

In May, Napoli appointed Carlo Ancelotti to replace Sarri amid speculation that the latter could take the Chelsea job.

The main reason for the prolonged saga has been compensation.

Sarri has also presented a list of players he would like to sign.
