  • COBHAM ENGLAND- JULY 11 Antonio Conte of Chelsea during a training session at Chelsea Training Ground

British media pointed at the 48-year-old's likely severance package, a reported 9 million pounds ($11.81 million) if he sits out the year remaining on his contract, had been one of the sticking points.

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

Chelsea are expected to announce Sarri's appointment on an initial two-year contract imminently - together with the signing of Italy global midfielder Jorginho for a combined fee of €65 million (£57.5m) - after convincing Napoli chairman Aurelio De Laurentiis to release the 59-year-old from his contract. In a time that should have been the most hard season of my career, Antonio was honest, respectful and there for me whenever I needed him.

New rules prohibit English clubs from completing new signings after August 9, but they can continue to sell players to foreign clubs until the end of that month.

He also clashed with senior players such as Diego Costa and David Luiz while others had begun to grow tired of his methods.

The Italian had two contrasting campaigns at the helm as he over a team that finished 10th in the Premier League as defending champions and turned them around immediately to reclaim the title in 2016/17.

Ex-Napoli boss Maurizio Sarri has been heavily linked with the Chelsea FC post after Carlo Ancelotti replaced the contoversial Italian coach at Napoli earlier this summer.

Then, as has happened so often at Chelsea, it turned sour quickly.

Thibaut Courtois and Eden Hazard have both been reluctant to commit to fresh deals with Conte still in charge until his departure was announced on Thursday. This is a club used to major change and has proved it has the infrastructure to cope.
