Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri is reportedly one of the main contenders to succeed Massimiliano Allegri, who is leaving Juventus this summer.
According to The Telegraph, Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is aware of Juventus’ interest in appointing Sarri as their next manager.
The report claims Abramovich won’t stand in the way of Maurizio Sarri if Juventus offer to pay up to £5million in compensation to take him back to Italy.
It is understood Chelsea won’t make a decision over Sarri’s future until after the Europa League final against Arsenal next week.
It is believed Abramovich is concerned about Sarri’s relationship with match-going Chelsea fans and would not try to hold Sarri against his will if he expresses a desire to succeed Allegri at Juventus.
Standard Sport claims Juventus are still keen on the idea of making Sarri their new head coach, despite Chelsea demanding a £5million fee in compensation.
Sarri still has one year left on his contract at Stamford Bridge, with an option for another 12 month but Abramovich is happy to let the Italian join Juventus provided Juventus pay up to £5million in compensation.
It is believed Chelsea’s demand will not be a stumbling block for Juventus.
Meanwhile, Jorginho insists he will be surprised if Sarri leaves Chelsea.
Jorginho said: “I’d be surprised if he left because we are third in the Premier League, we’re in the Europa League Final and reached the EFL Cup Final.
“It has been a positive season. Sarri is relaxed, even more so now than in other stages of the campaign.”
