Benitez unlocks Sarri to Juve?

Former Napoli boss Rafa Benitez is being linked with a shock return to Chelsea, which would in turn release Maurizio Sarri to Juventus.

Tuttosport talks of an ‘imminent’ meeting between Benitez and Chelsea, who will not let Sarri join Juve until they have secured a replacement.

The Spaniard was an unpopular appointment at Stamford Bridge in 2012, but he ultimately delivered a Europa League before moving to Napoli a year later.

He has since re-established Newcastle United as a Premier League club, despite problems with owner Mike Ashley.

Pirlo: Blame Chelsea, not Sarri

Andrea Pirlo believes Maurizio Sarri is not to blame for the perceived lack of harmony at Chelsea. “Maybe it’s the club.”

Sarri led Chelsea to Europa League glory and a third-place finish in the Premier League, ensuring a return to the Champions League next season, but his future has been the constant subject of speculation.

“I’m studying to become a Coach,” Pirlo told the Daily Mail.

“I have to do the last licence in September and after that, maybe it will be good for me to become a Coach.

Official: Norgaard leaves Fiorentina

English side Brentford have officially signed midfielder Christian Norgaard from Fiorentina on a four-year contract.

A statement on Brentford’s official website adds Norgaard’s deal has the option of a fifth season.

However, whereas Sky Sport Italia is reporting a transfer fee of €4m (£3.5m), its English equivalent expects the EFL Championship club to pay €3.2m (£2.8m).

The Dane was brought in as a replacement for Milan Badelj last year but made just six Serie A appearances, amounting to only 323 minutes of football.

Chelsea 'to stick with Sarri'

It is now being reported that Chelsea will give Coach Maurizio Sarri one more year at the helm.

Sarri had been increasingly linked with a return to Italy, in particular to replace Max Allegri at Juventus.

That was on the proviso that Chelsea would turn to club legend and Derby County boss Frank Lampard.

However, the Sun – which runs the story as an exclusive – claims the Blues will not sack the 60-year-old as they want Lampard to ‘spend another 12 months learning the ropes’.
