    Maurizio Sarri is set to be confirmed as Chelsea’s new head coach after Antonio Conte was finally relieved of his duties after two increasingly fractious years in charge.

    Conte, who claimed the Premier League title and an FA Cup in his two seasons at the club, had been anticipating the axe to fall all summer but, with Chelsea’s negotiations over the compensation due to Napoli to secure Sarri having proved complicated, he had returned to his officeat Cobham last weekend. The Italian even took training on Thursday morning before, with the players sent home for the afternoon, confirmation came of his sacking.

    Chelsea have yet to comment but it is understood Conte said his farewells to his players on Thursday lunchtime after training

    Sarri in and Jorginho in could be quite tasty for Chelsea. Rumours are that teams are trying to pick off Willian, Hazard, Courtois and Kante though.

    It’s strange it’s taken so long to do this. I think the whole world knew he was going as far back as winter.

    I've been waiting for the downfall of Chelsea for years and I feel this is another step closer. Get Hazard out of the squad and they are at risk of falling back into best of the rest territory. The squad is becoming filled with pretty average rejects from other similar clubs: Giroud, Drinkwater, Barkley, Begovic etc.

    Where is this coming from?  I've heard rumours on here but not seen anything to suggest there is anything in it.  Anybody with any knowledge about this?

    That Radcliffe rumour refuses to die. Nothing concrete.

    It is a rehash from earlier this summer when he had visa issues and has now claimed Israeli citizenship or something similar. Though was as he was having issues getting new visa he may decide to sell up
