Sarri to Chelsea today?

Maurizio Sarri could join Chelsea today, with the English club expected to announce Antonio Conte’s sacking.

The Blues have removed the former Italy CT from his position, but haven’t yet made any official announcement.

Serie A is stepping up

With a list of proven winners, emerging talent and four teams back in the Champions League, Serie A is making a huge step up, writes Vilizar Yakimov.

It’s been a while since there has been so much excitement before the start of a Serie A campaign. It’s only the middle of July, but there are plenty of reasons for optimism for Calcio fans, as putting Milan aside, all of the Serie A big guns have made a significant leap in quality compared to last year.

Carlo Ancelotti’s appointment at Napoli is expected to insert a much-needed winning mentality into the Partenopei’s game and is likely to tempt more top players at the club.

Conte continues Chelsea fight

Chelsea face a bitter legal battle with Antonio Conte, as it’s reported he was fired without the €11m pay-off, as Maurizio Sarri comes in.

There had been reports throughout the day that the tactician had been given the axe along with his staff, several days into pre-season training.

Conte had been a lame duck for weeks, but hasn’t been officially dismissed because Chelsea struggled to work out a compensation agreement to release Sarri from his Napoli contract.

Milan winger Suso’s agent reportedly met Chelsea this week to discuss a potential €40m transfer.

The Spain international and former Liverpool player had already been heavily linked with Napoli when Maurizio Sarri was in charge.

Report: Conte leaves Chelsea

Antonio Conte and his staff have reportedly been dismissed by Chelsea, paving the way for Maurizio Sarri’s arrival.

The former Italy CT has essentially been a lame duck at Stamford Bridge since the end of last season, but the Blues couldn’t agree a compensation deal with Napoli for Sarri.

That meant that Conte had to continue to take first team training or be in breach of contract, and he took the morning session today before the players were sent home.
