Announcement imminent as transfer target tells club goodbye



Chelsea managerial situation is finally set to end with the confirmation of Maurizio Sarri this weekend.

Head coach Antonio Conte was sacked yesterday by the Blues after months of speculation on his future. Chelsea had been negotiating with Napoli over the transfer of former coach Maurizio Sarri. Earlier reports from Italy had claimed that Chelsea had agreed to pay the compensation fee demanded by Napoli for the 59-year-old tactician.

Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis confirmed this yesterday that negotiations were at the finishing points. Italian tabloid CalcioMercato carried a report that Sarri is in London to finalize the transfer. According to the report Chelsea are expected to announce the appointment of Legend Zola as Sarri assistant coach.

Italian international Jorginho is also expected to follow Sarri to the London club. De Laurentiis revealed yesterday that Chelsea had agreed to a deal with Napoli to sign the 26-year-old playmaker Manchester City had been the frontrunners for the midfielder with many expecting the player to sign for the English champions.

However, the prospects of living in London and higher wages ensured that Manchester City lost out on the Midfielder.

The Italian international was spotted in London and a medical has been scheduled before an official confirmation in the next few days. Chelsea fans would be hoping to move on from the transfer saga and are delighted in securing the highly rated midfielder.
