Conte is not happy at how his dismissal was handled, particularly after he came back to take pre-season training at Cobham this week.

However, his second season in charge ended with a limp title defence as his side finished fifth in the Premier League, crucially missing out on Champions League qualification.

Just ask Roberto Mancini, who said this of Sarri after a heated exchange in 2016: "People like him should not be in football".

"During Antonio's time at the club, we won our sixth league title and eighth FA Cup.

Chelsea are one of many clubs with a lot of business left to do in a short space of time.

Conte's average of 2.14 points per game in the Premier League is bettered only by Alex Ferguson (2.16) and Guardiola (2.34).

Sarri's arrival will end the managerial turmoil at the club and there is expected to be a late push to bring in new faces. "Great man, Great manager".

Chelsea have an interest in Higuain and he is rated by Maurizio Sarri, who is set to take over at Stamford Bridge.

Zola scored 59 league goals for Chelsea across seven seasons between 1996 and 2003.

However, Chelsea hijacked their proposed deal with the Evening Standard claiming a £57.4m fee has been agreed with Napoli and the midfielder is now believed to have flown-in to London to undergo his medical.

To compensate, Sarri also made a tactical change by moving Dries Mertens to a more central role.
