GETTYMaurizio Sarri to Chelsea Former Napoli boss looks set to replace Antonio Conte

"I thank Maurizio Sarri for his dedication to Napoli that has given the city and the fans worldwide prestige and emotions", De Laurentiis said.

The Italian guided the Neapolitan side to an impressive second place finish - amassing 91 points - while also playing some of the most exciting football on the continent.

Napoli have twice finished as runners-up to Juventus in the past three seasons.

According to Corriere dello Sport, Ancelotti met with Napoli president Aurelio de Laurentiis on Tuesday to discuss the project that awaits on the Amalfi Coast as well as the terms of a deal.

Palmeri added that Ancelotti won't be announced until June 1 as that's the day after his Bayern Munich contract expires. He is the only coach in history to win the Championships of Italy, England, France and Germany.

Conte, 48, remains in charge of Chelsea for the time being but it appears inevitable that he will depart before the World Cup starts.

The 59-year-old joined Napoli three years ago and had been under contract until 2020.

The former Chelsea and Real Madrid boss had been heavily linked to the Italian national team but that role went to Roberto Mancini in the end.

According to Sky Sports Italia, Zenit have invited the 59-year-old former banker to Russian Federation to see Saint Petersburg and their training facilities.

It is claimed Sarri would also tell Chelsea to move for Senegal star Kalidou Koulibaly, who was strongly linked with a move to Stamford Bridge in 2016.

Ancelotti excels in being a father-figure to his players, offering a calming influence from the sidelines and, as was the case in Italy and Spain, being hugely popular with players and fans alike. "Serie A regains one of the excellences of our football".
