Chelsea part ways with Conte

But following months of speculation regarding his future, the nature of Conte's exit tells you all you need to know about Chelsea's feelings towards him.

However, his second season in charge ended with a limp title defence as his side finished fifth in the Premier League, crucially missing out on Champions League qualification.

The Blues have been going through a rather chaotic time at the moment considering their managerial change. Good luck for the future. The Italian is also unhappy with his overall treatment from the club and the delay in his departure - with only a month to go before the 2018/19 Premier League campaig begins.

"Chelsea Football Club and Antonio Conte have parted company", a brief statement read.

Not getting into the Champions League was a big minus to Chelsea.

Manchester City were keen on signing Jorginho but it looks as though Maurizio Sarri's imminent appointment as the new Chelsea manager has swayed Jorginho towards joining the London club.

Conte then managed his old team Juventus in 2011, where he lead them to win three consecutive Serie A titles. The Italian global was thought at one stage to be heading to Manchester City, but Sarri and Chelsea have managed to convince him to forego a season of Champions League football and move to West London instead.

Conte produced a record 30 Premier League wins during his maiden season, which has since been thwarted by Manchester City's 32 victories last season, while he now boasts Chelsea's longest consecutive league wins with 13.

Conte is reported to have earnt £6.5 million per season at Chelsea, with his net worth an estimated £10million.
