Sarri agrees terms with Chelsea to succeed Conte

Having won the Premier League title in Conte's first season at the helm, last term was a troubled one for Chelsea - although it ended with them winning the FA Cup.

Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois were likely to have left Chelsea FC this summer if Antonio Conte had stayed on as manager of the west London club, according to reports in the British media.

Chelsea finally confirmed Conte's departure on Friday, with Cesc Fabregas paying tribute to the Italian coach on Twitter.

But he was warned not to follow the title success with "a Mourinho season" in reference to their slump of 2015-16 when they finished 10th, a year after winning the league under the Portuguese. However, Costa had a falling-out with Conte ahead of the 2017/18 season and he didn't play for the Blues again as he went AWOL in order to force a move to his former club Atletico Madrid.

It is expected that Chelsea will formally unveil Sarri as their new manager in the very near future.

Morata was an expensive acquisition of Conte's, but the striker failed to maintain form through-out last season after a blistering start to the campaign. "Great man, Great manager".

The 26-year-old was a star player for Maurizio Sarri's side that pushed Juventus all the way in the Serie A title race last season.

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

Conte's relationship with the Chelsea hierarchy had soured in the final year at the helm of the club regarding transfers.

Chelsea are aiming to announce Sarri over the weekend or early next week, with club legend Gianfranco Zola set to come in as assistant coach.

At times during the Sarri reign, Napoli played an nearly mesmeric style of football which was just about the most attractive in Europe. Attention will then turn towards securing Sarri and Chelsea's other summer targets, believed to include players such as Aleksandr Golovin and Daniele Rugani.
