GettyMaurizio Sarri is set to take over at Chelsea
Chelsea's bitter battle with Antonio Conte could take another twist -after the Italian was left "disgusted" over his sacking as the club put the finishing touches to Maurizio Sarri's appointment as their new head coach.
The Italian led Chelsea to a stunning Premier League title during his first season in charge, while he won the FA Cup with the Blues last term.
The FA Cup holders are expected to announce the departure of Conte imminently after finally reaching a £9million agreement to terminate his contract on Thursday.
Juventus' recent dominance of the Italian top flight was nearly ended by Sarri's swashbuckling Napoli side last season.
Antonio Conte was finally sacked as Chelsea manger today in what was perhaps the least surprising news since Donald Trump announced he was coming to Britain and, in response, Britain made a decision to construct a giant inflatable orange baby to fly over his head whilst he was traipsing around pretending to look important.

The IT tech said that the divers were not heroes and directed attention to the rest of his team and the Thai Navy Seals. They ended up stranded on a ledge in the darkness for nine days before they were found by two British divers on July 2.
Sarri started his managerial career with Pescara in 2005 before undertaking quick-fire spells at Arezzo, Avellino, Hellas Verona and Perugia.
Conte still has one more year running on his current contract and wants Chelsea to pay all of his £9m clause in full.
It is said they feel Sarri will be a refreshing change for players used to Conte's brutal training demands.
In a summer of heavy spending, he brought the enigmatic David Luiz back to Chelsea for an eye-watering fee, before splashing out on Leicester's midfield maestro N'Golo Kante.
Before joining Chelsea, Conte had only coached in his native Italy, leading Juventus to three consecutive Serie A titles from 2012-14 before taking over the national team at Euro 2016.
