Premier League giants Chelsea have announced the sacking of Antonio Conte.

They are in the process of clearing out his backroom staff so former Napoli boss Sarri can start ahead of the first pre-season fixture in Australia a week on Monday.

"Sarri is close to being new Chelsea manager".

But Goal understands that Conte now no longer in charge at Stamford Bridge, and that he wants a £9 million ($12m) severance package as compensation.

Conte's position has been under scrutiny since the middle of last season when relations with the board became strained amid a feeble title defence. Carlo Cudicini is still at the club and he is likely to help Eddie Newton take training today. "Great man, Great manager".

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

Sarri, who split his time between banking and playing football before he took up coaching aged 40, has not won a major honour in three years at Napoli but has guided the club to finishes of second, third and second again.

The former Empoli manager was named Serie A Coach of the Year in 2016-17.
