Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis has fuelled speculation linking Maurizio Sarri with Chelsea by revealing talks with Sarri have broken down.
When quizzed on Sarri’s future as Napoli boss, De Laurentiis said: “There is no more time for Sarri, he didn’t answer.
“Ask him, he has always sent me to Pellegrini (Sarri’s agent), he never gave me an answer. He only replied, ‘boh!’
“I have to take responsibility. At some point we have to move forward. I’m not saying he’ll leave. There is a release clause, we’ll see what will happen.”
