Antonio Conte set to depart Chelsea

Maurizio Sarri

De Laurentiis was quoted as saying: "Sarri is close to being new Chelsea manager".

Chelsea have reportedly sacked Antonio Conte as they move a step closer to finally ending the managerial saga that has been bubbling since the latter stages of last season.

During three years with Napoli, Sarri has not won a major honour but has guided the club to finishes of second, third and second again - behind Juventus in 2017-18. Articles appear on euronews.com for a limited time.

Chelsea are now primed to announce former Napoli boss Sarri as his replacement, with talks at an advanced stage.

Maurizio Sarri will only take over at Chelsea FC if the Blues keep hold of both Eden Hazard and Willian this summer, according to reports in the British media.

However, as it is not properly finalized yet, Conte has been seen on the Stamford Bridge giving training sessions as he is still left with a £9m-a-year contract with the Blues.

The Italian transformed the London club from also-rans to champions in his first season in charge but he's now been given his marching orders.

"Jorginho to Chelsea is not tied to Sarri".

The Italian club value Jorginho at £50 million but City are not willing to shell out more than £35 million on the defensive midfielder.

Last month he said: "When Conte first game to Chelsea I wasn't playing at all".

"Jorginho joining Chelsea does not depend on Sarri [joining Chelsea]", concluded De Laurentiis.

"The Sarri affair is almost at its conclusion, it all depends on him".

Italy worldwide Jorginho has been a reported midfield target for Premier League champions City throughout the transfer window and was thought to be close to sealing a move to the Etihad Stadium.

"My lawyers have submitted papers to his lawyers".
