Maurizio Sarri is no longer Napoli manager, as the Azzurri appointed former Blues boss Carlo Ancelotti today.
The deal was confirmed a couple of hours ago and now Sarri is free to look for a new club.
Yesterday he was close to sign with Zenit St. Petersburg and that was the reason why Napoli chairman Aurelio De Laurentiis decided to open a quick negotiation with Ancelotti, who signed in less than 24 hours, but today reports from Italy suggest that Chelsea are trying to convince him to move to Stamford Bridge.
Roman Abramovich has been keeping tracks of the coach that almost guided Napoli to an historical Scudetto this year for months and tomorrow Sarri’s entourage is expected to meet Chelsea directors to discuss about a possible deal.
Meanwhile Chelsea has to find a way to part ways with Antonio Conte, who has still got a year on in contract and doesn’t want to break it without a payout.
