Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas has thanked Antonio Conte for his time at the club, with the Italian's sacking expected to be announced soon.

His second campaign proved far less harmonious, however, and although they lifted the FA Cup in the spring, they could only finish fifth in the Premier League.

De Laurentiis went on to add that "Jorginho would go to Chelsea regardless of Sarri".

He also clashed with senior players such as Diego Costa and David Luiz while others had begun to grow tired of his methods. Shitsukane though had the last word saying a Chelsea managerial firing shouldn't fall under the breaking news category any longer.

Disregarding the mixed reactions, Richard Lavender paid his respects to Conte for what he achieved at Stamford Bridge and the "true passion" shown by him for the club.

However, Antonio Conte's sacking has come at a very odd period as he had returned for training earlier in the week to begin preparations and was instantly unhappy with Chelsea's plans for the upcoming season.

On several occasions a new manager for the Blues was on the verge of being named with Napoli manager Maurizio Sarri and Luis Enrique both heavily linked with the post.

The 26-year-old was reportedly set to join champions Manchester City, but, according to De Laurentiis, the player would prefer to live in London.

But he was replaced as manager of the Italian club by Carlo Ancelotti in May.

Sarri's expected arrival is also expected to see him bring Napoli midfielder Jorginho to the club, with the Blues shaking off interest from Manchester City and Pep Guardiola.

In addition, De Laurentiis wants a contract stipulation stating Chelsea will not plunder any of Napoli's players.
