The 48-year-old Italian, who returned to pre-season training this week, had one year remaining on his contract.

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.

"Chelsea Football Club and Antonio Conte have parted company", Chelsea said on their website.

'During Antonio's time at the club, we won our sixth league title and eighth FA Cup.

Chelsea has not made any major summer signings in the summer transfer window so far because the board is waiting to confirm the new boss at the club.

Only two managers have recorded a better points average than him in the Premier League.


Giovanni Martusciello, who is now the technical collaborator of Inter Milan, has reportedly turned down the chance to join Maurizio Sarri's coaching staff at Chelsea.

When asked about the prospect of the attacker moving to Real, Martinez said: 'He can play for any demanding team in the world'. "I wish you every success in the future".

Maurizio Sarri reportedly agrees a deal to become the new head coach of Chelsea with club legend Gianfranco Zola returning to Stamford Bridge as assistant.

His future has looked uncertain with Chelsea failing to qualify for the coming season's Champions League after finishing fifth.

Former Spain manager Julen Lopetegui was appointed instead.

Napoli midfielder Jorginho may be the first player to join his former coach in swapping southern Italy for London, as he prepares to take a medical at Stamford Bridge ahead of a €58m transfer.
