Maurizio Sarri’s move to Juventus is expected to be concluded by the end of the week according to Daily Mail with the Italian in advanced talks with Juventus.
Sarri is currently in Italy ahead of completing his move to Juventus and he is believed to have agreed a two-year deal with Juventus, which includes the option of another 12 months. It is worth in excess of £6million a year.
The Italian told the Chelsea board on Friday of his intention to join Italian champions Juventus and Chelsea will receive a compensation fee of £5million.
Sarri won 39 of his 63 games in charge of the Blues with only Jose Mourinho winning more in his debut season (42).
Sarri led Chelsea to success in the Europa League, 3rd place in the Premier League and the final of the Carabao Cup, which the Blues lost to Manchester City.
The Blues have already started the process of identifying replacements for Sarri with Blues legend Frank Lampard – currently Derby manager – a contender for the position.
Chelsea midfielder Jorginho, who was signed from Napoli by Sarri last summer, has admitted he will be disappointed to see Sarri leave Chelsea for Juventus.
“I would be very sorry if Sarri left Chelsea,” Jorginho said.
“The work of the coach: very positive in Chelsea. He suffered great criticism, yet we returned to the Champions League and won the Europa League.”
Jorginho also warned Sarri against joining Juventus.
“The Napoli fans still have him in their hearts, it’s normal that they can get angry,” Jorginho added.
“They’re passionate, they can give you everything. They could treat it as a betrayal, they’re like that. We’ll see what happens.”
