Former Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is reportedly set to take Chelsea to court for his remaining salary.
The Italian was sacked and replaced with Maurizio Sarri during the summer after a very lengthy process of compensation negotiation. However, Conte has refused to relent as the issue drags on.
The Blues are eager for a settlement to be reached outside of court but Conte has refused to take part in any of the meetings.
According to reports, Conte believes he should be paid what is stipulated in the contract. There are also indications that the figure could be around – £11.3m to £20m as well as an additional £8.7m in damages.
