Antonio Conte sacked by Chelsea

Transfers live: Klopp gives transfer update and Payet offered to West Ham Reports: Chesea Close To Finally Replacing Conte And Gazumping City For Napoli Midfielder

English Premier League club, Chelsea have reportedly sacked Antonio Conte as their manager after finally reaching an agreement to terminate his contract.

Conte's departure from the club had been delayed with the Blues working out a compensation package for the Italian, who had one year remaining on his contract.

The huge Belgian has spent much of his time at Chelsea fluttering his eyelashes towards Madrid, where he enjoyed a great spell with Atletico and where his two children live with his ex-girlfriend. They are also interested in goalkeeper Alisson Becker if Thibaut Courtois decides he wants to leave.

The Sarri deal is in the homestretch, it depends on him.

A midfielder in his playing days, Conte spent 13 seasons at Juve, winning five Scudetti and the 1996 Champions League title.

With Jorginho at his disposal, Sarri should be able to replicate most of that system from Napoli, which might help guide Chelsea back into the top four.

Chelsea FC finished in fifth place in the Premier League table last term to miss out on a spot in the Champions League. "Jorginho would go to Chelsea regardless of Sarri".

Sarri is believed to have agreed to bring former Chelsea favourite Gianfranco Zola - whose managerial career has stalled after a series of failures - along as one of his backroom staff. Ronaldo's arrival in Turin has presented a problem to the Argentine and his future is definitely up in the air.

Others perhaps had even more obvious reasons to fall out with the manager even if it was never clear whether they actually did, in particular David Luiz, whom he exiled from the team at the beginning of last season.

Sarri is expected to be in charge of Chelsea's pre-season training camp in Australia.

Here are the three big names from Italy that could join Sarri in the capital.
