Maurizio Sarri is understood to be on Chelsea's radar

They finished fifth, five points adrift of the final Champions League qualification spot, with Conte having appeared a far different entity this season from the enigmatic tactician who led the London club to the league previous year.

Under Sarri, Napoli narrowly missed out on a first Serie A title since 1990 and it has been reported Chelsea would need to pay €8m to get him out of his current contract.

Sarri has previously told his Napoli's President Aurelio Di Laurentiis to fire him if he is not happy with his work.

His statements make it clear that the Blues hierarchy are likely to be the ones to have to initiate any contract termination.

Conte has been linked with Real Madrid, but Zinedine Zidane's position looks more secure than earlier in the season with the club just one victory away from a third straight Champions League win.

Syrian state media says Israel attacked just after USA quit Iran deal
Global agencies responsible for inspecting compliance have said that Iran was in full cooperation with the agreement's terms. But Israel and Russian Federation have maintained close communications to prevent their air forces from coming into conflict.

With this in thoughts, Sportsmail has beforehand reported that Chelsea wouldn't exclusively need to repay Conte, but in addition his eight backroom staff as nicely to make means for a successor.

Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri was another as well as Sarri on the club's shortlist, with rivals Arsenal also interest as they seek a replacement for Arsene Wenger. Nevertheless, the Italian has dominated himself out of rivalry for both place out of loyalty to his present employers.

The lack of results at Chelsea have sparked a tide of change as manager Antonio Conte will not be returning next season.

Conte nonetheless has yet one more match to supervise with Chelsea as he seems to be to salvage one thing from their season with an FA Cup triumph.
