It is being rumoured that the clubs put together a gentleman agreement that will prevent the English team from going after other players besides Jorginho, whose acquisition is already official. With just three weeks to go for the new Premier League season to start, Chelsea have decided that it is impossible to let Hazard leave at this juncture.
However with Sarri still under contract with Napoli, and Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich reluctant to spend in light of his visa issues, all parties had been left in limbo until Conte was finally relieved of his duties on Friday.
During three years with Napoli, Sarri helped the club to two second-placed finishes in Serie A and won the Coach of the Year award in 2017.
It was suggested that Napoli's asking price at the time was around £13 million, but the 27-year-old ultimately remained in Naples following the arrival of now Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri.

"Jorginho is not a physical player, he's a technical player", said Sarri. I want to bring enjoyment to the fans, the fans have to be proud of the team.
Jorginho added: "I am absolutely ecstatic to be here at Chelsea".
Sarri was forced to apologise again in March this year for responding to a female reporter's question by saying: "You're a woman, you're attractive, for those two reasons I won't tell you to go f*** yourself".
