Chelsea part ways with Conte

But Goal understands that Conte now no longer in charge at Stamford Bridge, and that he wants a £9 million ($12m) severance package as compensation. He had been waiting since winning the FA Cup in May to resolve his future at Stamford Bridge, but difficulty in securing Sarri delayed the process.

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

"Chelsea Football Club and Antonio Conte have parted company", Chelsea said on their website.

Chelsea has not made any major summer signings in the summer transfer window so far because the board is waiting to confirm the new boss at the club. Antonio Conte has told me by message that I do not follow at Chelsea and that's it. Conte said he did not count on me for next season.

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.

Sarri spent a total of three seasons at Napoli, guiding the club to the Champions League in each of his campaigns and establishing them as Scudetto contenders for the first time since the days of Diego Maradona.




Sarri's arrival will end the managerial turmoil at the club and there is expected to be a late push to bring in new faces.

Sarri, who comes off the back of a wonderful season with Napoli, had been sacked during the summer but remains under contract with the Serie A runners-up.

Indeed, according to reports in Italy, Sarri is already on his way to London.

But they are set to announce him as their tenth manager since Roman Abramovich took over in 2003, with Brazilian midfielder Jorginho also likely to join him from Napoli, despite Manchester City pushing hard for a deal earlier in the season.

Martusciello worked under Sarri as an assistant manager at Empoli and it seems as though he had the chance to reunite with his former colleague at Chelsea for the foreseeable future.
