Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has been criticised by Chelsea fans for large parts of the season due to his uninspiring Sarri-ball that has seen Chelsea struggle in the Premier League this season.
Despite promising to deliver a possession-based attacking football, Chelsea are the lowest scoring side in the top six and some Chelsea fans have called for the Italian to be sacked at the end of the season.
It seems Sarri already has a top job waiting for him if he gets sacked by Chelsea this summer.
According to Standard Sport, Sarri has been named as the preferred choice to take over from Gennaro Gattuso as AC Milan manager this summer.
Gennaro Gattuso is under pressure after AC Milan were beaten by Lazio in the Italian Cup semi-final last week and their mixed form has put their chances of securing Champions League football next season in doubt.
AC Milan are two points behind fourth-placed Roma with four matches still to play as they look for a return to Europe’s top table for the first time since 2014.
Roma were also interested in Sarri but have now prioritised appointing former Chelsea boss Antonio Conte instead.
Despite calls from fans for Sarri to be sacked, the Italian could still remain as Chelsea boss next season if Chelsea qualify for next season’s Champions League.
Chelsea’s 1-1 draw with Manchester United on Sunday leaves the Blues in fourth place, two clear of Arsenal, with just two matches left to play. The Blues are also in the semifinals of the Europa League, a competition which guarantees the winner automatic Champions League qualification.
Sarri hopes to remain at Chelsea beyond this season and believes he will be successful at Stamford Bridge.
“The Premier League is wonderful and I want to remain in the Premier League,” said Sarri. “I want to remain at Chelsea, because the level is very, very high.
“The atmosphere in the stadiums is really fantastic. And so it’s a wonderful championship. I’d like to remain here.
“I am sure that, in two seasons, we will be able to close to them (Liverpool and Manchester City).”
