  • Chelsea transfer news Abramovich Sarri Conte

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

Chelsea are expected to announce Sarri's appointment on an initial two-year contract imminently - together with the signing of Italy worldwide midfielder Jorginho for a combined fee of €65 million (£57.5m) - after convincing Napoli chairman Aurelio De Laurentiis to release the 59-year-old from his contract.

Conte leaves with the best win percentage 65.1% of any of Chelsea's managers in the Premier League era.

Relations between Conte and the Chelsea hierarchy had always been hard but deteriorated markedly over a hard second season with regular disagreements over transfer policy. I've laid down my conditions.

"But Chelsea is going to offer more to Napoli and to Jorginho for his contract, so he'll join Chelsea I guess". Sarri will look to transform Chelsea to a possession-based side and Jorginho will be pivotal to that change.

Confusion surrounded Conte's future with speculation rife of his exit, but the Italian returned to training for the first day of pre-season this week. The club have yet to confirm Conte's departure, but it is understood that he was relieved of his duties after taking training yesterday morning.

And The Sun have now delved into why Chelsea have finally made the decision to put Conte out of his misery. Aurelio De Laurentiis has now confirmed that a deal is in place to bring Sarri to Stamford Bridge.

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.

He can operate in a variety of different midfield roles thanks to his work-rate, and accuracy of passing but is generally seen as a creator.

However, the 25-year-old is set to become Chelsea's record signing if he pens the deal with the EPL champions this summer.
