Maurizio Sarri set to become Chelsea head coach in place of Conte

Sarri is the man Ancelotti is replacing, with the former pegged to replace Conte at Stamford Bridge since May, but the move is being held up by a dispute between the two clubs over compensation.

They finished way behind champions Manchester City and failed to qualify for the Champions League.

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

Jorginho was a key player in Sarri's Napoli team, but De Laurentiis said that he "wasn't essential" for Ancelotti.

Blues legend John Terry also sent a message to Conte, who he played under in his final season at Stamford Bridge.

On several occasions a new manager for the Blues was on the verge of being named with Napoli manager Maurizio Sarri and Luis Enrique both heavily linked with the post.

City had been aiming to complete a £50 million (€56m/$66.3m) deal to sign Jorginho , with De Laurentiis confirming he has accepted an offer from the Premier League champions.


Jorginho has snubbed Manchester City. Despite reports in the English media continually claiming Sarri will be introduced as Chelsea's new coach, it doesn't look likely of happening right now.

"However, if for personal reasons I won't get into, the player prefers to live in London rather than in Manchester, I can understand him".

It's entirely possible that after all the negotiations, Chelsea could stand by Conte as the most efficient course of action.

Sarri isn't the only one who boarded a plane in Naples bound for London by the sounds of it, as Jorginho is believed to have made the same trip.

While Conte took charge, Moses was not among the lot, as Chelsea's non-World Cup 2018 players returned to their Cobham facilities on Saturday morning for their first pre-season training session and standard procedure medical checks.

Sarri spent three seasons in charge of Napoli but was unable to wrestle the title from Juventus, finishing fifth, second and third.

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.
