Chelsea To Use Diego Costa Text In Case Against Antonio Conte

Maurizio Sarri has been pictured outside Stamford Bridge ahead of his proposed appointment as Chelsea manager.

The same report claims that both players would have sought to leave the west London club this summer had Conte stayed on as manager. His future has looked uncertain with Chelsea failing to qualify for the coming season's Champions League after finishing fifth.

The Premier League season starts in four weeks' time, leaving clubs much less time than usual to conclude their summer transfer business.

With the departure of Antonio Conte this week, Chelsea are ready to back Sarri in the market.

"We wish Antonio every success in his future career", the statement read.

In Terry's final season at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea sailed to the 2016/17 Premier League title in a convincing fashion in what was a fitting end to the defender's time with his boyhood club.

Morata enjoyed two successful seasons in Juventus before being recalled to Real Madrid, but his former side would prefer cash for Higuain rather than a swap deal.

In May, Napoli appointed Carlo Ancelotti to replace Sarri amid speculation that the latter could take the Chelsea job.

Morata was an expensive acquisition of Conte's, but the striker failed to maintain form through-out last season after a blistering start to the campaign.

Napoli are also expecting compensation of around £4.5million for Sarri, who is under contract even though he is no longer their coach.

The chain smoking former Empoli manager - who will have to restrain himself on the touchline in England where smoking is banned - was named Serie A Coach of the Year in 2016-17.

He also clashed with senior players such as Diego Costa and David Luiz while others had begun to grow tired of his methods.
