According to a report in Football Italia however, Chelsea have been put off by Sarri's release at Napoli where - despite no longer being employed as manager - his contract remains valid and salary paid.

The 25-year-old Argentina worldwide has a £96million release clause and is reportedly a target of Maurizio Sarri, if he replaces Antonio Conte as manager of Chelsea.

Former Chelsea manager Ruud Gullit believes the club would swap their FA Cup trophy for a place in next season's Champions League.

Conte is expected to be sacked by Chelsea this summer with Sarri the hot favourite to replace him.

Cahill then went on to praise his manager claiming that Conte has helped him a lot but hinted that he does not know whether the 48-year-old will stay at the club or not, "He's been good for me, I've taken things from him like I have the rest of the managers".
