Maurizio Sarri has signed a contract to become Chelsea head coach, with Gianfranco Zola as his assistant, according to Sky in Italy.

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

The west London side struggled to follow up their Premier League title winning season of 2016/17, limping to fifth in the league with only an FA Cup triumph over Manchester United as a consolation to take from their season.

Despite winning the FA Cup last term, the club have parted ways with the Italian, and former Napoli manager Maurizio Sarri will take the reigns, becoming the club's ninth full-time manager since Roman Abramovich took charge in 2003.

The main reason for the prolonged saga has been compensation.

To compensate, Sarri also made a tactical change by moving Dries Mertens to a more central role.

Even then, after reports swirled in the Italian media that he had been sacked, it took another day for the club to confirm what everyone already knew.

The sacking brings to an end a fractious two-year relationship between Chelsea and Conte. This text will now form the basis of Chelsea's evidence against their former manager.
