Chelsea have told Sarri ‘he can leave next week’ with world class Allegri all set for Blues move?
Reports have claimed Chelsea will allow Maurizio Sarri to join Juventus next week, with the possible arrival of Max Allegri on the horizon.
Sarri has told Chelsea he wants to return to Italy after just one season in England, after a number of fallings out with his top stars and the media, and Chelsea have reportedly told him that he is free to leave next week.
Sarri never felt comfortable living and working in England and has been tempted back to his homeland with a move to Juventus, who has decided to part ways with boss Allegri, despite the Italian boss bringing back another Seria A title.
And according to reports on the Sky Sports website, Chelsea have told Sarri that he is now free to leave the club and join Juventus, despite the fact that they had no intention of sacking him this summer.
Sarri feels he can leave with his head held high after winning the Europa League and qualifying for the Champions League, two things which he was brought in to try and accomplish at Chelsea.
But his departure from the club could open the door for Chelsea to seal a deal for Allegri, who is very keen on a move to the premier League.
Allegri has led Juventus to four successive league and cup doubles and two Champions League finals during his spell in charge, but reports have claimed that Juventus are eager to get back into the habit of challenging and then winning the Champions League titles, and decided to part ways with Allegri.
Teams from England and Spain have been dominating the Champions League title over the past decade, and Juventus have seen their status as one of Europes best become a bit lax over the past few seasons, despite dominance in Seria A.
Alegri is regarded as one of the finest coaches in the game right now and is a tactical genius, so the fact that Chelsea have an opening when Sarri leaves will surely open the door to a move to the Premier League.
Frank Lampard and Laurent Blanc are also in the running for the job, but Allegri’s top-level experience surely hands him the job?
