Chelsea FC manager Maurizio Sarri is on the verge of taking over the reins at Serie A champions Juventus, according to a report in England.
The Guardian is reporting that the Blues boss is set to put pen to paper on a three-year deal with the Italian side less than 12 months after his appointment at Stamford Bridge.
The same article states that Sarri’s agent Fali Ramadani held a meeting with the Europa League winners on Friday and his client is now free to return to Italy with Juve.
According to the same story, the Serie A title holders don’t expect to have to pay a fee for Sarri despite the Italian having two years remaining on his current deal at the west London side.
The Guardian report goes on to say that former Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri, Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo, Watford’s Javi Gracia and former PSG head coach Laurent Blanc are all contenders to replace Sarri at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea FC finished in third place in the Premier League table in the 2018-19 season following Sarri’s appointment as Antonio Conte’s replacement last summer.
Sarri led Chelsea FC to Europa League glory after the Blues were 4-1 winners against bitter rivals Arsenal in the Baku showpiece last month.
