Chelsea FC are finally going to announce Maurizio Sarri as their new manager next week, according to reports in the British media.

talkSPORT is reporting the Blues are getting ready to confirm the Italian manager as their new boss as he prepares to take over from Antonio Conte at Stamford Bridge.

Conte’s future at Stamford Bridge has been a constant source of speculation all summer after the Blues finished in fifth place in the Premier League table last term.

According to the same report, Chelsea FC’s players have been left in the dark about the managerial situation at Stamford Bridge in recent weeks.

The same story says that Conte has not been in any talks with the west London club about transfers, with the Blues yet to have signed any new players this summer.

Chelsea FC will have to make do without Champions League football next season after the west London side finished in fifth place in the Premier League table in Conte’s second campaign in charge.

The Blues won the Premier League in Conte’s first season at the west London side but struggled to produce consistent form under the Italian manager last term.

However, they did end the campaign on a high by beating Manchester United in the FA Cup final.
