Sarri and Jorginho to Chelsea for €65m?

Maurizio Sarri could be the new Chelsea manager tomorrow with Napoli selling Jorginho as part of the €65m deal, snubbing Manchester City.

The Partenopei started pre-season training today with new boss Carlo Ancelotti, but Sarri remains under contract until it is terminated by mutual consent.

Napoli President Aurelio De Laurentiis has been reported to want anywhere between €5m and €20m to let the tactician go, but Sky Sport Italia, Sportitalia and more claim tomorrow will be decisive.

The key is the inclusion of Jorginho in the move, despite having practically agreed a €55m transfer to Manchester City.

Between Coach and midfielder, the total cost of the operation would be €65m.

It really does seem to be imminent, because CalcioNapoli24 spotted Jorginho having a big farewell dinner with friends and family in Naples, complete with cake and tears.

Chelsea are in chaos, because this week Antonio Conte and his staff took charge of training sessions, albeit aware that he is about to be sacked at any moment.

The hesitation is also because the Premier League side would have to pay circa €11m to buy Conte and his staff out of their contracts.
