Chelsea players' in the dark over manager's future

Chelsea's players still expect Antonio Conte will be shown the exit, but are calling for clarity with the club's situation threatening to prove a distraction during the World Cup.

The Blues have been stuck in limbo as they wait to see whether lawyers acting on behalf of Maurizio Sarri can get him out of his contract stand-off with Napoli.

Belgium's Eden Hazard, who himself has held off putting pen to paper on a £300,000-a-week deal with Chelsea, is among those wanting to know what will happen next.

Chelsea have shown serious interest in replacing Conte with Sarri but they did not want to pay £7million in compensation to Napoli. That clause expired at the end of May.
