Maurizio Sarri to Chelsea: Bookies pull the plug after major development

Maurizio Sarri

The same article states that the former Napoli boss will have to convince Chelsea FC to part with a transfer fee in the region of £88m to sign the Senegal worldwide.

Coral spokesman John Hill told Starsport: "It looks like Chelsea are on the verge of announcing Sarri as their new manager therefore we have pulled the plug on this market".

According to the "Daily Mail", the 59-year-old is most likely to sign a two-year deal with the club, with the option of a third year on the table.

Whether Sarri will be handed a larger budget remains to be seen, but speculation is already suggesting that Juventus defender Daniel Rugani, who worked under Sarri for two years at Empoli, will be his first signing at the club.

Chelsea FC are looking to rebuild their squad after the Blues finished in fifth spot in the Premier League last term to miss out on a Champions League spot for the second time in three seasons.

Chelsea have "struck a gentleman's agreement" with Maurizio Sarri for him to become their new manager, according to reports from Italy.

Conte's compensation would be expensive and it appeared that had scuppered a deal for Sarri, with Chelsea looking at cheaper alternatives such as Laurent Blanc.

Oddly, the report also says Sarri will move into Chelsea's Cobham training ground rather than finding somewhere to live in the city.
