Reports: Alisson to Liverpool done

Reports in both Italy and England state Roma goalkeeper Alisson’s move to Liverpool is a done deal.

It was reported earlier today that the Reds had made a €75m bid, matching the Serie A side's asking price, and the two sides were simply negotiating over bonuses.

Now both Sky Italia and the Guardian report that a deal is done, with Gianluca Di Marzio stating that the €75m - which includes bonuses - will be paid in two installments.

Sarri: ‘Heartbroken by Napoli’

New Chelsea Coach Maurizio Sarri admits he was “heartbroken” to leave Napoli - “there were mistakes on both sides”.

The tactician was wildly popular with the San Paolo crowd, with his ‘Sarrismo’ brand of football taking the Partenopei to 91 points last season, even though they couldn’t win the Scudetto.

He fell out with President Aurelio De Laurentiis though, who appointed Carlo Ancelotti in his stead shortly after the season finished.

Roma’s Alisson alternatives

Roma are considering Robin Olsen, Alphonse Areola and Jasper Cillessen as potential replacements for Alisson, according to reports.

The Brazilian goalkeeper appears to be close to joining Liverpool, while Chelsea could yet make a late move once they sell Thibaut Courtois to Atletico Madrid.

In either case it appears certain that Alisson will leave this summer, so sporting director Monchi is looking for alternatives.

Sarri a real departure for Chelsea

Maurizio Sarri is Italian like Antonio Conte, but Chelsea fans will learn the similarities largely end there, writes Nick Valerio.

Averaging a trophy a year in his time in charge, Antonio Conte was the latest in a long line of high-profile Coaches to receive his marching orders from the Stamford Bridge hot seat.

Successor Maurizio Sarri, who has finally taken his place in the dugout after his will-he-won’t-he saga, will be charged with bringing a sense of stability to a pre-season that has descended in to chaos.
