55 days ago Conte celebrates Chelsea’s FA Cup win after beating Manchester United 1-0

Chelsea have sacked manager Antonio Conte after two years in charge.

Conte, 48, had returned to full pre-season training at the start of the week despite huge uncertainty surrounding his future at the club, but with one year left on his contract the Blues have made a decision to relieve the Italian tactician from his duties in west London.

Chelsea have parted company with their Italian manager Antonio Conte after two years at Stamford Bridge, the Premier League club said on Friday (Jul 13).

Meanwhile, Napoli boss Maurizio Sarri is rumoured to be on the verge of being appointed as the new boss at Stamford Bridge.

Winning the FA Cup against former Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho's Manchester United in May was scant consolation to finishing 30 points behind champions Manchester City in the league.

DONE DEAL? Chelsea accept Real Madrid offer for Courtois
And after Hazard's impressive showings at the World Cup for Belgium he could be the man they turn to. If they hold off and Hazard fails to extend, they could lose out on precious millions.

Chelsea will try to convince Hazard that the appointment of Sarri, together with a number of new signings including Jorginho, Daniele Rugani and Aleksandr Golovin can help the club challenge for the top titles again.

"During Antonio's time at the club, we won our sixth league title and eighth FA Cup". This text will now form the basis of Chelsea's evidence against their former manager.

The summer of 2017 saw captain Terry leave Chelsea after 22 years, while Diego Costa was told by text message that he was no longer in Conte's plans and he eventually completed a protracted move back to Atletico Madrid in January.

Under Sarri's tutelage, Dries Mertens has been transformed into one of the continent's most potent attacking threats, the Belgian scoring a whopping 56 goals in the last two seasons for the free-flowing Partenopei. The Italian is also unhappy with his overall treatment from the club and the delay in his departure - with only a month to go before the 2018/19 Premier League campaig begins.

After leaving Chelsea, Terry signed on to play with Aston Villa in the Championship last season. Terry took to social platform Instagram to post a picture of himself and Conte together with the Premier League title and captioned it with the words: "Thank You Boss".
