Maurizio Sarri has done well in his first season as Chelsea manager, but there are uncertainties about his future in England.

Following the departure of Max Allegri from Juventus, Sarri has been linked with the vacant Juventus job as Juve strongly want the Italian and former Napoli boss to manage them next season.

Chelsea haven’t really appreciated Sarri as there were calls for his sack in the course of the season. And now reports claim the Chelsea manager is interested in the Juventus deal.

Chelsea are rumoured to be interested in signing club legend Frank Lampard to be the new man to replace Sarri if he leaves. However, Lampard’s uncle Harry Redknapp has revealed that the Chelsea job might just be too big for his nephew, Frank Lampard.

“If Sarri goes I think Frank would be one of the favourites,” Redknapp told talkSPORT

“Well, he is the favourite, if you look the bookmakers they’ve closed the book on it. He’s a massive odds-on favourite.

“But it’s a difficult one for him. He’s at a good club, Derby is a great club. He’s had one year there and he’s got a good relationship with the chairman, so it would be difficult to leave.

“But if the Chelsea job comes up, will he turn it down? It won’t be easy for him. It’s a big job at Chelsea next year, with the transfer embargo and [potentially] losing Eden Hazard, I mean, my God, how do you replace him? He’s a special player.

“No one can fill those boots. He’s in the top five players in the world. They can’t replace him.”
