Maurizio Sarri, Jorginho Arrive in London Ahead of Chelsea FC Moves

"During Antonio's time at the club, we won our sixth league title and eighth FA Cup".

'We wish Antonio every success in his future career'.

The Blues added the FA Cup to their trophy haul under Conte back in May following Chelsea FC's 1-0 win against Manchester United at Wembley courtesy of Eden Hazard's victor from the penalty spot.

After months of speculation, Antonio Conte is no longer Chelsea manager.

Cesc Fabregas has paid tribute to Antonio Conte after the Chelsea FC manager's departure was all but confirmed on Thursday evening.

Many will argue the move is a harsh one, as Conte was decent throughout his reign and he can leave with his head held high as the Blues did not have a trophy-less season during the two terms under his tutelage.

The Italian had already publicly criticised the club's transfer policy and warned, from as far back as August previous year, that his squad was not strong enough.

But he was warned not to follow the title success with "a Mourinho season" in reference to their slump of 2015-16 when they finished 10th, a year after winning the league under the Portuguese.

Conte's average of 2.14 points per game in the Premier League is bettered only by Alex Ferguson (2.16) and Guardiola (2.34). "Great man, Great manager". But who is Sarri and what can Chelsea fans expect from him? Jorginho and Sarri together again?

Although Chelsea strengthened with the arrival of players such as £60m striker Alvaro Morata, they missed out on other targets, including their former striker Romelu Lukaku, who moved to Old Trafford instead.

Manchester City were keen on signing Jorginho but it looks as though Maurizio Sarri's imminent appointment as the new Chelsea manager has swayed Jorginho towards joining the London club.

They reportedly include Brazil-born Italy global midfielder Jorginho from Napoli, CSKA Moscow´s Russian playmaker Aleksandr Golovin and Italian defender Daniele Rugani from Juventus, the side that edged Napoli in the Serie A title race.
