Chelsea strike gentlemen's agreement with Napoli coach Maurizio Sarri

Alisson

The report suggests that the 59-year-old will receive a three-year contract on wages of €6m (£5.3m) per season.

Sarri has been pushing for a switch to Chelsea for the past several months, but has been frustrated in his efforts as he is still tied to Napoli.

Whilst Antonio Conte hasn't officially been relieved of his duties, it seems a matter of time before the Italian is sacked, with Sarri taking over.

Conte has yet to be relieved of his duties as Chelsea manager and will walk away from the position with a healthy compensation package worth £9m.

He's made quite a name for himself at Napoli, with his exciting style of football almost earning the Neapolitans their first Serie A title since the Diego Maradona era.

Dean Mastrojohn, a Pfizer spokesman, said the company's "price list remains unchanged for the majority of our medicines". Pfizer on Monday defended the price increases, saying they would not lead to a net increase in prices for consumers.

Chelsea are yet to announce the departure of Antonio Conte who won the FA Cup title last season, and this must be done before a new man will be announced as his replacement.

De Laurentiis claimed that Chelsea have not yet made an attempt to sign Sarri.

Peculiarly, it has been reported that Sarri will live at Chelsea's Cobham training ground upon completion of his move, as the former Empoli manager seeks to rebuild his squad ahead of the return of players on July 9.

Chelsea are keen for Sarri to get involved in the transfer market as soon as possible, with the Blues yet to sell or buy any players so far.
