The Blues are now expected to appoint Sarri, who recently left Napoli, which led to a contract wrangle with the Italian club, although the saga is nearing a conclusion.
Having won the Premier League title in Conte's first season at the helm, last term was a troubled one for Chelsea - although it ended with them winning the FA Cup.
It hasn't been the most productive pre-season at Stamford Bridge with the uncertainty over the coaching position clouding much of the summer, and Antonio Conte has now officially been dismissed by Chelsea as Maurizio Sarri waits to be appointed.
Conte delivered trophies in his two years at Chelsea but also brought controversy. "In the title winning season, the club set a then-record 30 wins in a 38-game Premier League season, as well as a club-record 13 consecutive league victories", the statement reads.
Sarri, who split his time between banking and playing football before he took up coaching aged 40, has not won a major honour in three years at Napoli but has guided the club to finishes of second, third and second again.

And the club now has less than a month for their new manager to make an impact before their Premier League opener away at Huddersfield on 11 August.
