Former Napoli manager Mauricio Sarri looks set to be named as the new boss at Stamford Bridge, and things are quite likely to change.
In May, Napoli appointed Carlo Ancelotti to replace Sarri amid speculation that the latter could take the Chelsea job.
Unless a private agreement can be struck or Chelsea and Conte embark on a bitter legal battle, the Blues will have to pay the 48-year-old for the final year of his contract that was only improved on July 18 last year. I've laid down my conditions. Jorginho? We said to ourselves, "If Jorginho has any requests, we'll take them into account".
"But Chelsea is going to offer more to Napoli and to Jorginho for his contract, so he'll join Chelsea I guess". "Jorginho would go to Chelsea regardless of Sarri".
The president of the Italian club, Aurelio De Laurentis, has previously revealed that the player prefers the London club over Manchester City.
And The Sun have now delved into why Chelsea have finally made the decision to put Conte out of his misery.
Despite this, Fabregas has posted a message to bid farewell to Conte and thank him for time at the club - though only after he had purportedly celebrated the Italian's departure. The Italian global was integral in their Scudetto bid in 2017/18 only to be narrowly be beaten out by serial champions Juventus once again, but could be imperative in bringing Jorginho to Stamford Bridge instead of the Etihad.
Sarri, 59, guided Napoli to second place in Serie A in back-to-back seasons. This is a make or break summer for the England worldwide; he can either leave and fulfil his potential elsewhere or give it one more shot at Chelsea.
