It’s true. Sarri is Blue!!!

The former Napoli boss has signed a three-year contract worth around £18million. The 59-year-old will take over as a Manager after Antonio Conte was sacked on Friday.

The Italian led Napoli to two second-place finishes in his three seasons in charge of the Serie A club, who named Carlo Ancelotti as his successor in May.

“It is an exciting new period in my career,” said Sarri. “I hope we can provide some entertaining football for our fans and that we will be competing for trophies at the end of the season, which is what this club deserves.”

Sarri is the 13th managerial appointment by Blues owner Roman Abramovich since his transformation of the club in 2003.
