Reports – Sarri very close to Chelsea, Zola to be his assistant

Gazzetta dello Sport claims Maurizio Sarri is ‘very close’ to Chelsea but warns his Napoli € 8m release clause will return in a matter of weeks.

The Italian sports paper claims Chelsea have prepared a ‘lucrative’ two-year contract for Sarri, which includes an extend option for a third season, while Blues legend Gianfranco Zola will assist him at Stamford Bridge.

However,  Chelsea would have to hurry their negotiations with Napoli chairman Aurelio De Laurentiis as the manager release clause, which expired at the end of May, will become effective again ‘at the start of July’.
