Chelsea end Sarri interest and want Blanc to replace Conte

Chelsea captain Gary Cahill insists he has been happy working with manager Antonio Conte.

Napoli have demanded that any club looking to hire Sarri must pay his almost £7 million release clause, something which the club's president Aurelio De Laurentiis stated recently is yet to happen.

"It has imprisoned him".

Former Napoli coach Maurizio Sarri was replaced by Carlo Ancelotti last week, and is widely expected to be announced as Antonio Conte's replacement at Stamford Bridge should the latter leave in the next month or two.

"I have to congratulate De Laurentiis who has pulled off a big coup, because he's brought the most decorated Italian coach, who has won so much overseas, to Napoli".

Roman Abramovich is known to have taken a hands-on function over any potential managerial appointment, holding talks along with his closet aides about what course Chelsea ought to head. He understood and did so with great tenderness.

However, Chelsea are eager to deliver the saga to an finish within the coming days as they give the impression of being speed up their preparations for subsequent season.

"Now another cycle opens with a new coach, to whom I wish good luck in trying to impose himself on Napoli".

"I heard the news through the TV and the newspapers", Insigne told Corriere dello Sport (Via Football Italia).

"Sarri to Chelsea? It depends what Maurizio is like. The end is Koulibaly".

"When he asked me for some players and I said "no", he didn't keep insisting like Conte". "For somebody like me, who loves watching games at home on the sofa, Napoli are spectacular and his brand of football is a joy to watch".
