Chelsea manager, Maurizio Sarri agrees on a new deal with Italian giants, Juventus

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri who has expressed his fears of being axed by his boss has reportedly agreed on a three-year deal to become the new Juventus boss after  Manchester City’s manager, Pep Guardiola turned down the offer from the Italians.

The European giants are on the lookout for a new head coach following the announcement that Massimiliano Allegri will step down at the end of the season and has been looking out for a replacement.

They had earmarked Manchester City manager Guardiola as their first priority, but the Spaniard opted to remain in England and continue his project at the Etihad Stadium where he is targetting to get the side a UEFA Champions League trophy.

Juve soon made Sarri, who impressed in Serie A with Napoli, their new target, though Antonio Conte and Jose Mourinho were also mentioned as candidates.

And it seems the Turin giants have got their man after Sarri decided to call time on his Chelsea spell despite only arriving at Stamford Bridge last summer.

It is believed that Juventus has agreed on personal terms with Sarri and now need to discuss a financial package with his club Chelsea who has become increasingly concerned whether the ex-Napoli manager is still committed to the club after an indifferent season.

Despite achieving his target of guiding them back to the top four, his style-of-play has often been criticised by large sections of the Stamford Bridge support.

They are also in with a chance of lifting silverware, with Sarri’s side meeting Premier League rivals Arsenal in the Europa League final next Wednesday. But this season hasn’t been without turmoil for the boss, and Chelsea fans have chanted against Sarri on numerous occasions this season.
