Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri reportedly ‘hopes’ to be appointed Juventus’ new Coach this week.
According to the Evening Standard, Sarri was in Italy on Monday morning to finalise a deal with Juve, having told Chelsea last week that he wanted to leave the club.
The 60-year-old led the Blues back into the Champions League and delivered a Europa League, but his style of play and management has divided their fan base.
The newspaper adds the Londoners will ‘not stand in his way’ of joining the Bianconeri on a two-year contract worth ‘in excess’ of £6m (€6.8m) a season.
The Old Lady will also have to pay Chelsea £5m (€5.7m) in compensation after Mauricio Pochettino and Pep Guardiola proved ‘too expensive and too difficult to prise away’.
