Chelsea are finally close to appointing Maurizio Sarri as Chelsea boss according to Napoli lawyer Mattia Grassani.
According to Grassani, talks are ongoing between Chelsea and Napoli and everything should be concluded before the end of the week.
“Sarri-Chelsea? Yes well there was a meeting in Aurelio De Laurentiis offices in Rome but Sarri wasn’t present,” Grassani told Radio CRC via Calciomercato.com.
“We talked about a deal and we exchanged some ideas with the English club and Sarri’s lawyers.
“It is surely a very complicated deal that’s for sure. Why? Well because there are so many different clauses that De Laurentiis is looking at. Let’s say, De Laurentiis wants to protect Napoli.
“Deal in place? Well talks are ongoing and everything should be concluded before the end of the week. Even so, it’ still a work in progress, we have to be patient.”
