End of the road for Conte at Chelsea

End of the road for Conte at Chelsea

Chelsea are keen to stop Antonio Conte and David Luiz meeting again as they prepare for pre-season training. Today, Jorginho is set to join Chelsea over Manchester City... "Jorginho would go to Chelsea regardless of Sarri".

Jorginho was a key player in Sarri's Napoli team, but De Laurentiis said that he "wasn't essential" for Ancelotti.

De Laurentiis, speaking at a press conference on Wednesday to unveil new coach Ancelotti, said: "The Sarri affair is almost at its conclusion, it all depends on him".

City feel hugely let down by Napoli because they understood they had agreed an outline deal with the Serie A club 15 days ago for Jorginho's £48.7million transfer.

Everyone seems to know who their new manager is going to be, but Leeds United fans will be far more concerned with the impact that Conte's departure could have on their club.

There is a lot happening between both Chelsea and Napoli to resolve the situation, according to Napoli lawyer Mattia Grassani.

Watch Infinity War's Thanos ban more than 350K people on Reddit
But after a campaign by the subreddit's members to ban exactly half of all users , it looks like they finally got their wish . The good news is, Thanos did seem proud - or at least, the actor who played him in " Infinity War " did.

Chelsea's official website reported: "The 2018/19 season is up and running!"

Still, it's good to see the Blues player maintain their professionalism despite virtually having no first-team coach to oversee proceedings. Conte has refused to wave the £9 million salary he is owed. The club would need to pay at least another £5m in salary for Sarri. Chelsea can't get their transfer campaign started until this is resolved, and Napoli are paying two coaches to do one job.

Conte has been overseeing Chelea's preseason training preparations.

Chelsea's first pre-season game is in Australia, against Perth Glory on 23 July. This is a make or break summer for the England worldwide; he can either leave and fulfil his potential elsewhere or give it one more shot at Chelsea. Sarri has had several issues with other managers during his time in Italy.

Conte took the Blues training on Thursday morning, but his exit is now imminent and Chelsea's players had the afternoon off.
