Sarri: Chelsea appoint former Napoli boss to replace Conte

Chelsea, who have also been in protracted negotiations with former Napoli coach Maurizio Sarri whose appointment is imminent, may have been hoping Conte would find another job before they had to act.

Sarri was confirmed as Chelsea's new manager on Saturday morning following drawn out-talks, almost two months after being replaced by Carlo Ancelotti at the Stadio San Paolo. The 26-year-old was a star player for Maurizio Sarri's side that pushed Juventus all the way in the Serie A title race last season.

Maurizio Sarri has signed a deal to become Chelsea's new manager, according to reports.

Jorginho will be a big upgrade and he has the potential to form a devastating partnership alongside N'Golo Kante in the middle of the park next season so I think he'll be a superb signing for Chelsea.

After parting company with Antonio Conte yesterday, Chelsea wasted no time in appointing his successor.

But unfortunately for Laura, the villa assumed this note was about her and Jack, leaving her upset about their relationship. Jack confronted Idris on the show and accused him of deliberately trying to cause problems between him and Laura.

"We are delighted Jorginho has chosen to join Chelsea", club director Marina Granovskaia said in the statement. Conte did manage to add to Chelsea's trophy cabinet, with a Premier League and an FA Cup title the honours achieved under the Italian.

The former Italy national coach returned to take training this week but the writing was on the wall and the drawn-out process was reportedly due to how much compensation the club should pay Napoli for Sarri.

"I look forward to starting work and meeting the players on Monday ahead of travelling to Australia, where I will be able to get to know the squad and begin our match action", he told the club's official website.

The Premier League champions recently signed Riyad Mahrez for a club record £60m fee, and the winger won't be a guaranteed starter by any means.
