Former Napoli head coach Maurizio Sarri is the favourite to take over, with the club's top-flight opener a little over four weeks away.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte, pictured with the FA Cup trophy in May, appears to have been sacked.

Chelsea have delivered a telling insight regarding their relationship with sacked manager Antonio Conte after confirming the departure of the Italian boss.

The club even had the audacity to separate Conte from his achievements while at Chelsea, explaining that "during Antonio's time" they won a "sixth league title and eighth FA Cup".

The Blues missed out on a place in the Champions League despite starting the 2017-18 season as Premier League title holders following Conte's successful debut campaign in England.

Conte regularly questioned the club's ambition and dealings in the transfer window and departs after failing to guide the Blues into next season's Champions League.

Scores of screaming Filipino fans in the stadium waved flags and chanted "Manny Manny" throughout the match. Today was my turn to lose, but I lost to a great fighter and a great legend in Manny Pacquiao.

Chelsea finally put an end to Conte's two-year reign on Friday. Negotiations for the highly-rated manager's payoff have accelerated over the last 48 hours and are nearly completed.

Sky Sports reports that Sarri has finalized terms with the West London club, with Chelsea legend, Giafranco Zola set to join the coaching staff as his assistant.

An agreement has been reached for Napoli to release Sarri from his contract and Chelsea are putting the finishing touches to the installation of their new boss.

The Sun is reporting that the Chelsea FC board are confident that Sarri's appointment can bring stability to the Blues dressing room following a hard 2017-18 season.

While no official announcement has been made from either Chelsea or Napoli, Chelsea's Cesc Fabregas took to Twitter yesterday afternoon to pay his respects toward Conte.
