Pep Guardiola is understood to have identified the Italian global as one of his prime summer targets and it had looked like the 26-year-old was on the verge of joining the Premier League champions, but he will now be following Maurizio Sarri to Stamford Bridge after Chelsea came in with a higher offer.

Sarri has since given his first interview as Chelsea manager, claiming to be thrilled with his latest appointment, given that he was working in Italy's second tier only five years ago.

"I want to enjoy, first of all, myself".

More new faces are expected to arrive before the Premier League season begins in August, but Sarri is confident that Chelsea's squad will not require an overhaul to adapt to his ideas.

"With one or two changes we will be able to play my football", he said.

Chelsea new manager, Maurizio Sarri has revealed that he wants to achieve 100 per cent hard work and 90 per cent fun with the Blues players.

"If he creates a team as entertaining to watch as Napoli were under his stewardship then Chelsea's fans are in for a treat", he said on Twitter.

Chelsea's Director, Marina Granovskaia welcomed Sarri to the club and his football philosophy to the club.

"In the Premier League there are all the most important coaches in Europe, maybe in the world", he added. Or will the London rivals struggle to rebuild and reach the top four as they'll both play in the UEFA Europa League?

"I am absolutely ecstatic to be here at Chelsea", Jorginho told the Chelsea website.

Sarri will be speaking ahead of Chelsea travelling to Western Australia for the July 23 friendly with Perth Glory.

"The most important quality is that he is very quick in the mind".

Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had earlier reported that Premier League giants, Chelsea have officially announced the sacking of their Italian manager, Antonio Conte on their social media handle.

His replacement at Chelsea will be another Italian, Maurizio Sarri, who was at Napoli last season.

Conte is reportedly prepared to wait for a high-calibre position, with no obvious attractive vacancy at present.

'We wish Antonio every success in his future career'.
