Chelsea officially announce they have parted ways with Antonio Conte

Share

Conte won the Premier League in his first season and the FA Cup in May, but the team finished fifth in the league last season, missing out on Champions League qualification.

It's always been known that Conte would be dismissed with Sarri the favoured replacement, yet it was somehow allowed to get to the stage where the former Italy coach took the first three days of pre-season training before being dismissed.

Chelsea finally confirmed the sacking of title-winning manager Antonio Conte but the Blues opted for just 52 words in their statement as they failed to thank Italian.

Hazard will not have returned from his break after the World Cup by then, but Chelsea will seek talks with the Belgian's representatives over his future.

Conte's average of 2.14 points per game in the Premier League is bettered only by Alex Ferguson (2.16) and Guardiola (2.34). The former Empoli manager was named Serie A Coach of the Year in 2016-17.

But, despite winning the FA Cup last season - beating Manchester United in the final, Chelsea have ditched Conte ahead of the new campaign.

Napoli are also expecting compensation of around £4.5million for Sarri, who is under contract even though he is no longer their coach.

Although Chelsea strengthened with the arrival of players such as £60m striker Alvaro Morata, they missed out on other targets, including their former striker Romelu Lukaku, who moved to Old Trafford instead. "If Jorginho moves to Chelsea, my agreement with Abramovich does not depend on Sarri becoming their next manager".

Assuming both deals get over the line, Jorginho and Sarri should be at Chelsea by this weekend at a total cost of around €65m to secure both signings.
