Conte took pre-season training this week but his future has been a source of contention and ex-Napoli manager Maurizio Sarri expected to take over.

The BBC said the 48-year-old Italian's two year reign - which brought league success in 2017 and the FA Cup last season - was ending although they added Chelsea would not comment.

Chelsea could well find themselves stuck with unwanted manager Antonio Conte for the forthcoming 2018/19 season as a result of the ongoing contractual difficulties of replacing him.

And Omnisport understands Conte was present at Cobham on Monday as Chelsea got their preparations for the 2018-19 season underway.

Manchester City will react quickly to Jorginho's decision to join Maurizio Sarri at Chelsea by turning to Real Madrid midfielder Mateo Kovacic, The Times reports.

If he does come in, it will probably mean the likes of David Luiz and Kurt Zouma have to leave Stamford Bridge, as they will want regular first-team football next season.

The latest announcement shows that fears of a full-blown trade war appear to be coming to fruition. "Americans like cheap goods". China immediately retaliated with duties on the same value of USA goods, including soybeans and cars.

Now, the same report says that Sarri has made it clear to Chelsea FC officials that they must keep hold of both of the attacking players ahead of his first campaign in charge at Stamford Bridge.

As for Conte, it will cost Chelsea £9 million to jettison him, as that is how much he is owed for the final year of his contract.

Confirming Chelsea are close to finally making a breakthrough, De Laurentiis said: "The Sarri deal is in the home stretch, it depends on him".

It is a surprise that it has taken so long for any news to break on Chelsea's new manager.

He had been replaced in Naples by Carlo Ancelotti but not released from his contract, forcing the London club to pay a fee to secure him.

Jorginho's arrival will belatedly kickstart the club's summer transfer business, with Daniele Rugani and Aleksandr Golovin to follow from Juventus and CSKA Moscow respectively.
