Maurizio Sarri has left Stamford Bridge to return to Serie A and has signed a three-year contract with Juventus.

The 60 year old Italian asked Chelsea to let him return to Italy just days after guiding Chelsea to Europa League success, his first trophy as manager.

Sarri also guided Chelsea to a third place finish in the Premier League.

Just days after joining Juventus, Sarri is reportedly asking the Italian champions to sign Jorginho and Emerson Palmieri from Chelsea.

According to The Times, Sarri wants Jorginho at Juventus to help implement his playing style with the Serie A champions.

The report also claims Sarri is keen for Juve to sign Emerson from Chelsea.

Jorginho was an important player for Sarri during his time as Chelsea boss but Sarri faced lots of criticism from fans and the media for his decision to push N’Golo Kante to an advanced midfield position to accommodate Jorginho as a deep-lying midfielder.

Meanwhile, Emerson has rubbished talks of a possible Chelsea exit by insisting he is focused on Chelsea.

When asked about his future last week, Emerson said: “I’m happy at Chelsea, we won the Europa League and I am calm.

“I didn’t receive any call, I am happy here. There is nothing to say, I am focused on Chelsea.”
