Chelsea's bitter battle with Antonio Conte could take another twist -after the Italian was left "disgusted" over his sacking as the club put the finishing touches to Maurizio Sarri's appointment as their new head coach.

The Italian had two contrasting campaigns at the helm and has now vacated his post.

That success was helped by prolific striker Diego Costa, who scored 20 goals and provided eight assists.

In mid-October, the Blues were beaten by a Crystal Palace side who had gone into the match with no points from seven games, prompting Conte to dismiss rumours of unrest over his training schedule.

Conte spent two years at Chelsea. They eventually stuttered to a fifth-placed finish in the league, which has led to Conte's departure even though he did clinch the FA Cup title.

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.

Sarri, 59, guided Napoli to second place in Serie A in back-to-back seasons. Thibaut Courtois is expected to depart having entered the final year of his contract, forcing Chelsea to consider a move for Roma's Brazil goalkeeper Alisson. Last season, Jorginho completed the most passes (2,860 in total) across Europe's top five leagues. "Jorginho would go to Chelsea regardless of Sarri". It's big relief for Chelsea team!'. Gianfranco Zola could also return to Chelsea as part of the backroom or technical staff.

For other fans, however, the departure is a bit more bittersweet.

What to do with Ruben Loftus-Cheek will be one of the initial conundrums facing Sarri when he rocks up at Chelsea's Cobham training base.
