Chelsea sack Conte as Sarri move inches closer

Reports: Chesea Close To Finally Replacing Conte And Gazumping City For Napoli Midfielder

News broke from Italy that Conte had been sacked and, although Chelsea have refused to comment, Telegraph Sport understands he officially left the club on Thursday.

The 59-year-old led Napoli to two second-place and one third-place finish in three seasons in charge.

The Blues did manage to end last season on a high, however, as they beat Manchester United in the FA Cup final.

On the other hand, Ancelotti, the former Chelsea coach is appointed as the head coach for Napoli.

Confirming Chelsea are close to finally making a breakthrough, De Laurentiis said: "The Sarri deal is in the homestretch, it depends on him".

Chelsea are yet to make a move in the summer transfer market, with uncertainty over their management team delaying their dealings.

Antonio Conte is heading for the exit door at Chelsea despite winning the FA Cup in May.

'When Conte first game to Chelsea I wasn't playing at all, ' he said last month.

Despite that, the Manchester Evening News quotes sources close to City as denying that Jorginho has chosen Chelsea. "My lawyers have written up the paperwork which has been passed on to his lawyers and now we'll just have to see".

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.

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.

He enjoyed a hugely successful first season in English football, leading the London club to the Premier League title. Carlo Cudicini is still at the club and he is likely to help Eddie Newton take training today.
