Conte took training when some of the Chelsea squad returned for pre-season this week but has always been expected to be replaced this summer.

The west London side struggled to follow up their Premier League title winning season of 2016/17, limping to fifth in the league with only an FA Cup triumph over Manchester United as a consolation to take from their season.

Incredibly the club have released a statement thanking Conte for his services to the club, but the message only consisted of 52 words.

The Premier League season starts in four weeks' time, leaving clubs much less time than usual to conclude their summer transfer business.

'We wish Antonio every success in his future career'.

The exuberant, passionate and, at times, bonkers Italian was popular among many Chelsea fans and there was lots of support for him after his tenure finally came to an end.


Inter coach, Giovanni Martusciello will not be following Maurizio Sarri in his new adventure in England with Chelsea according to a report from Sky Sport. The team will now play in the Europa League. "Great man, Great manager".

Now moving on from last season, Chelsea are said to be closing in on another Italian to take Conte's place, former Napoli manager Maurizio Sarri.

Will Chelsea secure a return to Champions League football this season?

Chelsea hoped that another club might attempt to buy Conte out of the final year of his Stamford Bridge contract as he was unwilling to resign, but Paris Saint-Germain's appointment of Thomas Tuchel and Real Madrid's choice of Julen Lopetegui eliminated the possibility.

At times during the Sarri reign, Napoli played an nearly mesmeric style of football which was just about the most attractive in Europe.

Napoli midfielder Jorginho may be the first player to join his former coach in swapping southern Italy for London, as he prepares to take a medical at Stamford Bridge ahead of a €58m transfer.
