The latest development clouding the future of Chelsea's Manager, Maurizio Sarri, suggests that the former Napoli manager is set to become Juventus’ manager, according to Sky Sports.

He will become the new Manager for Juventus, replacing Massimiliano Allegri, who left the Serie A champions at the end of the season after five years in charge. In those five years he won the Scudetto five times.

Sarri told Chelsea he wanted to return to Italy after one season in England and the club took a stand not stand in his way.

The 60-year-old manager had one year left on his contract - with the option of another year - but Sarri never felt comfortable living and working in England.

Even worse, the media has been anything but favourable to Sarri’s plight and he is reportedly frustrated that he does not have a close relationship with key decision makers in Chelsea football club.

Although Chelsea had no plans to sack Sarri this summer, however they are reluctant to keep a coach who is unhappy, reports states.

The Manager has had quite an eventful career with Chelsea as he led the club to a 4-1 win over Arsenal in the Europa League final, to clinch the first trophy of his managerial career.

He is quoted to have said afterwards that he "deserved" to stay at the club. Clearly Sarri acknowledges that he can leave Chelsea with his head high, having qualified for next season's Champions League and has a trophy to his name.
