Sarri to become Juventus’ new manager a year after arriving at Chelsea

Chelsea will allow their manager to join Juventus just a year after joining the English club. Sky Italia announced that both clubs had reached an agreement for the transfer of the Italian tactician.

There has been any official confirmation from both either clubs as regards the transfer. Sarri was expected to extend his stay at the London club after winning the Europa League with Chelsea.

Juventus have been out in search for a new manager after the departure of their former manager, Massimiliano Allegri, who left the club at the end of last season.

Meanwhile, Chelsea expected the Italian side to pay a certain amount of money as compensation for the loss of the departing manager, who has a year left in his contract with the English club.

As reported by Sky Sports and BBC, both clubs agreed a £5 million as settlement for the release of the Italian.

He is expected to be unveiled as the new manager any time soon.

The 60-year-old landed from Napoli in July 2018 to replace another Italian, Antonio Conte, who spent two years at the English club winning the league and the FA Cup.

Sarri, in his first season at Chelsea, won the Europa league and ended the league in the third position.

Chelsea had earlier in the season reached the League Cup final but lost on a penalty shoot-out to Manchester City, who won all the domestic cups.

The Blues wrapped up their season by winning the Europa League by beating Arsenal 4-1 in Baku, yet fans were as yet not satisfied by manager’s style of play.

Former Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard, who drove Derby to the Championship play-off last in his first season as the manager, is much expected to be the new manager following an impressive season at the English Championship side.
