Juventus are understood to be preparing a compensation package to prise Maurizio Sarri away from Chelsea. The Italian giants want Blues boss Sarri to replace Massimiliano Allegri in Turin, and must now stump up in the region of £5million to secure their top target.
Chelsea are understood to have no plans to sack Sarri, who led the club to a third-place Premier League finish and Europa League triumph in his maiden Stamford Bridge campaign. Juventus sent a delegation to Baku for talks with Chelsea bosses on Sarri’s situation, ahead of the Blues thrashing Arsenal 4-1 to lift the Europa League crown in style.
Sarri appeared delighted with the first major trophy of his managerial career, but had long since accepted he would talk to his Chelsea bosses about his future come the end of the campaign.
Former investment banker Sarri has polarised opinion around Stamford Bridge with his regimented tactics, drawing criticism from fans for taking time to hand home grown talents Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Callum Hudson-Odoi central roles. While Chelsea would be prepared to let Sarri take the helm for a second season, club bosses are also mindful that the 60-year-old may prefer to return to his native Italy with the Old Lady.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
