Chelsea finally end Conte saga

Chelsea finally end Conte saga

"During Antonio's time at the club, we won our sixth league title and eighth FA Cup".

The 48-year-old Italian has a year remaining on his contract, but left the Blues on Thursday, according to Sky Italia.

With that being announced nearly two months ago, Chelsea fans would have expected the managerial change to have been confirmed by now to let Sarri build his team, after all the Premier League starts in just a months time.

Chelsea have finally confirmed Maurizio Sarri as their new manager, a day after Antonio Conte was shown the door.

Conte's been absent from all social media posts by the club, which has only fuelled rumours that he won't be in charge by the time the Premier League season starts in August.

The London club says, "We wish Antonio every success in his future career". Indeed, the likes of John Terry and Cesc Fabregas have already passed on their messages of goodwill for the 2017 Premier League victor.

Liverpool bid for Roma keeper Alisson
It seems Chelsea will not be backing down without a fight, as Liverpool close in on a deal to sign Alisson from AS Roma . Simon Mignolet , who started last season as number 1 at Anfield, is also expected to move on this summer.

Jorginho is set to become the first signing of a summer in which the prolonged uncertainty over Chelsea's coaching position has had a paralysing effect on the club's transfer dealings, but more new faces are expected in the coming weeks.

If the reports prove to be true, Chelsea would be looking for a 13th permanent boss of Roman Abramovich's ownership, which began in June 2003.

Do you think this was the right decision by Chelsea?

Chelsea's first game of pre-season match is the July 23 friendly with Perth Glory in Western Australia.

Manchester City are furious with Napoli and new Chelsea signing Jorginho for reneging on a deal to join the Premier League champions.

Sarri led Napoli to two second-place finishes in his three seasons in charge of the Serie A side and pushed Juventus all the way for the Scudetto last term.
