Gazzetta dello Sport journalist Francesco Fontana has revealed Maurizio Sarri is still in Tuscany while rumors regarding his potential takeover at Stamford Bridge are growing up.
“You know the situation” Sarri reportedly told the Italian journalist in Italy.
“I just can’t talk right now” he added.
His wife reportedly added: “We hope everything could be sorted out soon”.

While talks between Napoli’s president Aurelio De Laurentiis and Chelsea board are still ongoing, also some transfers remain blocked as the one which could land Daniele Rugani to Stamford Bridge this summer.
His agent told Sportitalia: “It is obvious to say that the Sarri question must first be resolved, then proceed with the negotiations and make them more or less concrete.”
However, current Chelsea head-coach Antonio Conte was pictured in Cobham yesterday as the squad started his pre-season tests in Cobham training centre.
