Maurizio Sarri is set to leave Chelsa and sign a three-year contract with Juventus.
The Chelsea team management was very much concerned about team’s performance through the middle of the season and was considering to sack Sarri this summer in spite of Chelsea winning the Europa League and making a third-place finish in the Premier League.
As per the reports, Sarri’s agent met with Chelsea directors, to agree to the terms for the manager’s departure, with Juventus expected to pay no fee for the 60-year-old’s services. according to Guardian
The news comes in the wake of Chelsea’s star player Eden Hazard’s £100m transfer to Real Madrid and Chelsea’s decision to appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport over their two-window transfer ban, which means that they can’t make any deal for the players during this point of time both on and off the pitch.
Meanwhile, the North London outfit has a long list of names for the profile left vacant by the departure of Sarri, which includes former Juventus manager Max Allegri, club’s all-time top scorer Frank Lampard, Wolves’ Nuno Espirito Santo and Watford’s Javi Garcia who all are under consideration, as well as England assistant coach Steve Holland.
