Chelsea have reportedly agreed to let Maurizio Sarri leave his post as manager, clearing the way for the Italian to join Juventus on a three-year deal.
Sarri’s release from the Blues has been secured after a meeting between the Premier League club and the 60-year-old’s agent, Fali Ramadani, per Fabrizio Romano of the Guardian.
Romano noted how Ramadani met with Chelsea on Friday to thrash out terms of the former Napoli man’s exit after just one season in west London.
The report also listed the host of potential replacements the Blues will consider, including, “former Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri, Nuno Espírito Santo of Wolves, Javi Gracia of Watford, Laurent Blanc, a free agent since being sacked by Paris Saint-Germain in 2016, and former player and all-time leading goalscorer Frank Lampard.”
Meanwhile, Sky Sports News reported Sarri’s departure from Stamford Bridge could take place as early as “next week.”
