Chelsea agree to release Sarri from his contract amid Juve rumours

Chelsea have agreed to release Maurizio Sarri from his contract so he can take the Juventus job, report Sportitalia.

The news comes from Sportitalia chief transfer guru Alfredo Pedullà, who is very close to Sarri and provided the most reliable updates when he was negotiating to leave Napoli for Chelsea.

It’s reported agent Fali Ramadani had a lengthy meeting with Chelsea directors in London and has now left, having received positive feedback from the Premier League club.

Sarri won his first piece of silverware last night, beating Arsenal 4-1 in Baku to lift the Europa League.

It’s believed Chelsea are keeping a promise to let him go if he still wanted to leave after that Final.

In his debut season at Stamford Bridge, Sarri also secured third place in the Premier League and reached the Carabao Cup Final.
