Juventus agree deal to take Chelsea boss back home
Juventus are reported to have struck a deal with Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri that will see the Italian become their next head coach.
The Italian champions are on the look-out for Max Allegri’s successor in Turin and names such as Mauricio Pochettino and even Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp have been mentioned, but it seems as though Sarri is the one they now want.
Reports in the Italian press claim that Juve are pursuing Sarri after being told they have no chance of luring Guardiola away from Manchester City.
It is claimed that a deal has already been agreed to take Sarri back to Italy, but a lid will be kept on the deal until after the Europa League final against Arsenal.
Sarri has insisted he is happy at Chelsea and would like to carry on coaching in the best league in the world, but the chance to return home with a club the size of the Old Lady, could be too good to turn down.
Meanwhile, reports are also claiming that former Real Madrid boss Julien Lopetegui has set his heart on replacing him at Stamford Bridge.
