Napoli chairman Aurelio De Laurentiis has revealed he allowed Maurizio Sarri to join Chelsea this summer only after the Italian coach signed a clause preventing him from signing any Napoli player apart from Jorginho.

Napoli stars Kalidou Koulibaly and Dries Mertens have been linked with moves to Chelsea this summer but they won’t be able to move to Stamford Bridge due to the clause.

“I only let him go once he had signed a contract which stated he would not be allowed to sign any of our players – apart from Jorginho,” De Laurentiis said of Sarri, according to the London Evening Standard.

”’There was a huge battle to take more of our players but they didn’t manage it.”
