At the time of writing there has still been no official confirmation from the club itself, but Fabregas has tweeted a goodbye message to the Italian tactician.

In a slightly cryptic tweet, the Spaniard also appeared to suggest life wasn’t always easy under Conte, as he had to win him over and prove him wrong after initially struggling to get into the side.

Cesc Fabregas seemingly confirming Antonio Conte’s exit

Fabregas did not start the 2016/17 campaign as a regular starter but became more key in the second half of the season as the Blues won the Premier League title.

It is slightly strange to bring this dispute up in a goodbye tweet, however, and it suggests that perhaps there remain some bitter feelings from the player to the boss.
