And former Napoli boss Maurizio Sarri is expected to be appointed as Conte's successor over the weekend.

Chelsea finally confirmed Conte's departure on Friday, with Cesc Fabregas paying tribute to the Italian coach on Twitter.

Chelsea have sacked manager Antonio Conte after two years in charge.

Chelsea are also closing in on their first major summer signing of the transfer window, with Napoli midfielder Jorginho set to follow his former manager to the Premier League club.

"I wish you every success in the future".

That success was helped by prolific striker Diego Costa, who scored 20 goals and provided eight assists.

"Thank You Boss", Terry posted on Instagram alongside a photo of the two of them holding the Premier League trophy.

The case came to light after the 2016 Panama Papers revealed that the apartments were bought through offshore companies. Scores of PML-N supporters were arrested and 10,000 troops have been deployed on the streets of Lahore .

The off-field controversies bled onto the pitch and the west Londoners flattered to deceive.

Conte joined the Roman Abramovich-owned club in 2016 and led them to the league title in his debut season along with an FA Cup triumph last campaign.

The 48-year-old Italian had been seen as vulnerable despite winning the FA Cup last term having fallen out with both the board and senior players.

Sarri's future has been up in the air since Napoli hired Carlo Ancelotti as their new coach in May.

This text will now form the basis of Chelsea's evidence against their former manager. The Serie A side, who still have Sarri under contract, have been in discussions with Chelsea to agree on a compensation fee and it is believed that everything has now been concluded.

Chelsea are aiming to announce Sarri over the weekend or early next week, with club legend Gianfranco Zola set to come in as assistant coach.

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