Chelsea have reportedly reached an agreement with Maurizio Sarri to replace Antonio Conte as manager.
Conte’s future has been in serious doubt for some time. Throughout last summer, he continually bemoaned the club’s lack of transfer activity. The performances subsequently nose-dived, with the former Premier League champions finishing in fifth-place.
That’s completely unacceptable, irrespective of the FA Cup triumph. The club appear keen to go in a different direction, with Conte soon to be parting ways with the club he has spent two-years with.
Calciomercato report that Maurizio Sarri is the man who is poised to replace Conte in SW6. An agreement has been reached with the Italian, but there are still details to iron out. Chelsea face the financial implications of sacking Conte, who still has a year to run on his deal. We also need to agree a fee with Napoli for Sarri’s release.
One way or another, it looks as though this situation will soon come to an end, with Sarri being Chelsea manager come the end of it.
