Juventus have opened discussions with Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri. It is understood the Blues will part company with their Italian manager after the Europa League final against Arsenal.

Sarri, who joined Chelsea from Napoli only last season, has come under fire for his inability to bring through the Stamford Bridge outfit's youth side in recent times and as well for a lack of a Premier League title challenge.

However, it appears Juventus are ready to bestow upon Sarri the top Italian managerial role as they look for a replacement for Massimiliano Allegri

According to multiple reports from Italy this morning, Sarri has been in touch with the Turin club's board of directors and Juventus are now ready to offer the Italian a five year contract to move back to Serie A and take over from Allegri for the 2019/20 season.

Chelsea are on the cusp of firing Sarri after the Europa League game against Arsenal, regardless of the result. Chelsea fans are reportedly in favour of Sarri's exit and have had a strained relationship with the former Napoli coach since he took charge at the Premier League side.
