JUST IN! Chelsea Reach Agreement With Juventus Over Coach Maurizio Sarri

Chelsea have reached an agreement with Juventus on Coach Maurizio Sarri, MySportDab reports.

The Italian is set to leave Stamford Bridge to take over at the Serie A champions.

Sarri was successful in his first season at Chelsea, finishing in the top four and winning the Europa League.

But the former Napoli boss was an unpopular figure among many Blues supporters because of his style of play.

According to Sky Sports in Italy, Chelsea have reached an agreement with Juventus for Sarri to take charge.

Derby manager and Blues legend Frank Lampard is the favourite to succeed Sarri at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea are currently banned from making transfer for the next two windows.

And Lampard is seen as a figure who would bring stability to the club and would immediately have the backing of fans.

If the Derby boss is appointed his first Premier League match would be a showdown with Manchester United after fixtures were announced on Thursday.

However, Chelsea are planning to use the money from Maurizio Sarri's exit to pay Derby County for their former player.

Sky Sports adds that Juventus sporting director Fabio Paratici has arrived in London to negotiate with the west London club.

There was a suggestion last week that Chelsea could receive a cut-price fee for the loan of Gonzalo Higuain, who is expected to return to Juventus after an underwhelming six-month stint, as a sweetener in the Sarri negotiations.

That seems unlikely, however, and both clubs are still haggling over Sarri, with Chelsea keeping the ulterior motive of their next coach in mind.

The report adds that Chelsea will have topay Derby £3.5m to get Lampard out of his contract, which expires in 2021.

Lampard, in his first managerial berth, steered the Rams to a sixth-placed Championship finish last term but lost 2-1 to Aston Villa in the play-off final.

The other names are recently-departed Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri, Watford manager Javi Gracia, former No 2 Steve Holl and, Ajax’s Erik ten Hag and Wolves coach Nuno Espirito Santo.
