The Italian is now odds on to replace interim manager Gus Hiddink in the summer after he impressed in Italy with three successive titles for Juventus and a record points haul.

The deal just needs rubber stamping when they meet, which is likely to be next week at Conte’s brother’s One Apple restaurant in Monte Carlo.

The 46-year-old is said to want to bring up to five of his backroom staff with him to Stamford Bridge but that is not expected to be a problem and, barring any last-minute hitches, a deal should be completed.
