Chelsea: Sarri refuses to rule out Juventus move

Chelsea: Sarri refuses to rule out Juventus move

May 29, 2019 By Emmanuel K. Budu-Annor
The Blues boss has kept the door open on a potential move to Turin.

Maurizio Sarri has dropped a massive hint on his future after leading Chelsea to triumph in the Europa League Final. The 60-year-old Italian manager's side blew Arsenal apart by sealing a 4-1 victory in Baku on Wednesday night.

The former Napoli manager has been heavily linked with a move to Juventus and recent reports have indicated that he will most likely complete the switch to Turin after the Europa League final. Ahead of the clash with Arsenal, the speculations were further fueled after Bianconeri chairman, Andrea Agnelli, was spotted at Chelsea's team hotel in Baku.

According to Tuttosport, Agnelli greeted Sarri at the five-star Four Seasons Hotel in the early hours of Wednesday morning but the pair held off any discussions until after the final. Chelsea's chairman Bruce Buck was also pictured in a conversation with the Juventus chief at some point.

Claims from Italy have indicate that the ex-Napoli manager has already agreed to a three-year deal in principle with Juventus and players of the club have already been told about his imminent arrival. He is expected to earn an annual wage of £6.2million.

Addressing the press following Chelsea's victory over Arsenal in the Europa League Final, Sarri left the door open for a potential switch to Turin this summer but dedicated his first career trophy to Napoli.

"I am pleased that Napoli congratulated me, I had no doubts it would happen. The Neapolitans know how much love I have for them and that last year I went abroad to avoid going straight to another Italian club.

"Napoli fans don't want me to go to Juventus? They know my love for them but sometimes this profession leads you on a different path.

"I dedicate this firstly to the Napoli fans, because this is the satisfaction I was unable to give them last year.

"I also dedicate it to those lads in the Chelsea squad who couldn't play tonight because of injuries. I think it's only right for all of us to have a special thought for them."

Meanwhile, Chelsea's win over Arsenal ensured that Maurizio Sarri became the first manager in history to win the Europa League trophy with an unbeaten run. The Blues won 13 games and drew on just two occasions.
