Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis is reportedly playing hard-ball as Chelsea look to finally bring in Maurizio Sarri as their new manager.

Di Marzio's great rival, Alfredo Pedulla, also says the pair are heading to the south of England.

On Monday, Sky Sports News reported that Napoli and Chelsea's talks were at a deadlock over Sarri's appointment as Antonio Conte's potential replacement.

Ancelotti worked alongside Luiz during his stint in charge of Chelsea and it's believed by the Mirror that the Italian tactician will offer the 31-year-old an escape route away from the Premier League.

The Italian head coach returned to the club's training ground in Cobham, Surrey, over the weekend, but had no involvement in the players' benchmarking fitness tests having clashed with the club over their return date, as revealed by The Times last week.




Antonio Conte seemed destined to lose his job at Chelsea after failing to qualify for the Champions League.

Chelsea embarked upon this summer in the knowledge that big decisions would have to be made in order to return to contention at the top of the Premier League next season, while key players Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois both publicly challenged the club to show more ambition in the transfer market.

Previous reports have suggested that Chelsea would pay Napoli €5m in compensation, but that has now increased dramatically and has only added to the uncertainty surrounding the situation.

Chelsea's first pre-season game is in Australia, against Perth Glory on 23 July.
