Chelsea Manager Maurizio Sarri’s stay at the club has remained a subject of speculation recently. The Italian has been linked with Serie A champions, Juventus having just led Chelsea through a fairly good season with a Europa League win over London rivals Arsenal.
Juventus is currently with no Manager. Former manager Massimiliano Allegri had made his intention of leaving known before summer.
Calceiomercato.com reports that Sarri had moved out of his London home, strongly suggesting an imminent move away from the club. It is believed that permission from the club is all that is needed to complete the move.
His move to Turin will be a contentious one, given the fierce rivalry between his former side Napoli and Juventus. Neapolitans are known to tag anyone crossing this boundary traitor. In response to this, Maurizio Sarri has responded during the Vanity Fair event saying:
“Who is a traitor? The one who subtracts. Who makes the individual objective prevail over the collective objective. Therefore I like the front half, where there is the emblem of the company. Behind it is the name of the player: that side interests me less,” CalcioMercato reports.
The Blues are now seeking a replacement for Sarri. It is believed that Derby county’s Frank Lampard and Massimiliano Allegri are the frontrunners for the job.
