Maurizio Sarri is said to have told Chelsea officials he wants to leave the club this summer amid reported interest from Juventus. Sky in Italy claim the ex-Napoli boss is looking to leave Stamford Bridge after one season, during which he led the Blues to third place in the Premier League and two finals – clinching the Europa League with a 4-1 win over Arsenal this week.
That was the first major trophy of his career and makes him an attractive proposition for a club like Juventus, who have only had one non-Italian manager in the last 48 years. Sky in Italy understand that Sarri has become a prime candidate to fill the vacancy in Turin that arose when Massimiliano Allegri left Juventus earlier this month – a year ahead of schedule. Sarri held talks with Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia on Friday and she will now discuss the situation with the club’s owner Roman Abramovich.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
