  • Chelsea expect to appoint former Napoli manager Maurizio Sarri as Conte's replacement

Conte is likely to take training unless firm action is taken on replacing him as talks continue between Napoli and Chelsea over bringing Sarri to Stamford Bridge. This remains a problem for all four parties involved. Why?

"Jorginho to Chelsea is not tied to Sarri".

Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis is waiting for an improved offer from Chelsea and Sarri is not in London, as he waits for the go-ahead.

Chelsea could well find themselves stuck with unwanted manager Antonio Conte for the forthcoming 2018/19 season as a result of the ongoing contractual difficulties of replacing him.

"Jorginho? We said to ourselves, 'if Jorginho has any requests, we'll take them into account'".

De Laurentiis also revealed that a deal for Sarri to become Chelsea's new manager is close to completion but he insists Jorginho would have moved to London even without his former boss.

City feel hugely let down by Napoli because they understood they had agreed an outline deal with the Serie A club 15 days ago for Jorginho's £48.7million transfer.




De Laurentiis, though, says that where Jorginho ends up playing next season is a separate matter to Sarri as he waits for the 26-year-old to make a decision on his future.

Chelsea are already working hard to secure their first transfer targets, despite a lack of clarity at the management level.

Rugani is set to cost somewhere around the £35 million mark, and if they are to get their man, will help solidify the centre of Chelsea's defence.

The attacker hinted he partly blamed Conte for missing out on selection for Spain's squad for the World Cup in Russian Federation this summer.

That culminated in a disappointing fifth-place league finish and an FA Cup win.

Chelsea met De Laurentiis on Monday to thrash out the terms of Sarri's compensation deal to allow him to come to Stamford Bridge.
