It is understood work on his contract is being finalised by lawyers and an announcement could be made before the weekend.

The length of contract reflects the fact that everyone is focused on bringing long-term success back to Chelsea and ends any future speculation about renewals.

Chelsea co-sporting directors Paul Winstanley and Laurence Stewart had travelled to Marbella for face-to-face talks with Maresca after Leicester gave permission for discussions to commence.

The Italian’s release clause at the King Power Stadium is understood to have been between £8m
and £10m.

Maresca’s obsession with possession and positional play made him the leading candidate to replace Pochettino, who left by mutual consent.
