Cesc Fabregas bids farewell to Antonio Conte after Chelsea boss sacked

Conte's firing imminent as Sarri waits in the wings

Conte is reported to have parted ways with Chelsea, with former Napoli manager Maurizio Sarri expected to be handed the reins at the club.

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.

Conte is still in position and took training on Monday while waiting to be sacked.

Higuain is keen to make the move from Juventus to Chelsea and become their main man, as the Chelsea board seem to lose faith with Alvaro Morata in front of goal.

Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis is waiting for an improved offer from Chelsea and Sarri is not in London, as he waits for the go-ahead.

Jorginho was a key player in Sarri's Napoli team, but De Laurentiis said that he "wasn't essential" for Ancelotti.

The Telegraph is reporting that Chelsea are going to pay £50 million to take Sarri and midfielder Jorginho to Stamford Bridge. But the Spaniard will face stiff competition from Premier League rivals Chelsea who are also keen on Jorginho's services and are preparing a bid for the 26-year-old.

Juventus' recent dominance of the Italian top flight was nearly ended by Sarri's swashbuckling Napoli side last season.

The Premier League and FA Cup winning boss has steadfastly refused to resign his position, meaning that the club has no choice but to prematurely terminate his contract if they want rid.

He added that his agreement for the sale of Jorginho with Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich was in place "irrespective of whether or not Sarri ends up taking charge of Chelsea".
