  • Chelsea next manager

Antonio Conte reportedly being fired by Chelsea on Thursday doesn't come as much of a shock.

In mid-October, the Blues were beaten by a Crystal Palace side who had gone into the match with no points from seven games, prompting Conte to dismiss rumours of unrest over his training schedule.

Tribal Football citing the Mirror claims the Stamford Bridge outfit might be forced to sell their record signing having failed to impress in his first season at the club.

It now appears that Cesc Fabregas is one Chelsea star who wouldn't have been particularly upset by his departure, liking one tweet that simply said "Yessssssss Conte gonnnnnnnnnnnnnnn @CFC".

Conte took pre-season training this week but his future has been a source of contention and ex-Napoli manager Maurizio Sarri expected to take over.

Sarri, 59, guided Napoli to second place in Serie A in back-to-back seasons.

The source with knowledge of the talks told CNN that Trump asked whether Kim knew where he'd gotten the nickname, and Kim said no. However, while the North's attitude may further impede the denuclearization talks, the regime is unlikely to boycott them.

Even before that, Fabregas openly criticised Conte's defensive tactics as Chelsea were knocked out of the Champions League at the hands of Barcelona in February.

Chelsea midfielder seemingly confirms reports that manager Antonio Conte has been sacked being official confirmation arrives from the club. He had been replaced in Naples by Carlo Ancelotti but not released from his contract, forcing the London club to pay a fee to secure him.

Jorginho is unlikely to be the only new arrival at Stamford Bridge and another of Sarri's former players at Napoli has been linked: Juventus striker Gonzalo Higuain.

Real Madrid are believed to be in the market for a new goalkeeper this summer with Courtois on their wishlist alongside Roma's Alisson.

This one is the most likely to go through and would certainly get the Chelsea fans excited ahead of the new Premier League season. Sarri used powerful yet technically gifted midfielders at Napoli such as Amadou Diawara and Allan, so Loftus-Cheek could feature in his plans.
