Juventus president Andrea Agnelli sits down with Chelsea chairman Bruce Buck before the Europa League final

Juve’s Andrea Agnelli sits down with Chelsea’s Bruce Buck

Pictures have spilled out on social media on Wednesday from the Four Seasons Hotel in Baku, Azerbaijan.

Arsenal take on Chelsea in the Europa League final later this evening.

Ahead of the game, Juventus president Andrea Agnelli has been pictured having a sit down meeting with Chelsea chairman Bruce Buck.

The sighting has been confirmed by Italian daily Tuttosport, as well as on social media.

So what’s the implication of the meeting?

Seeing two of football’s powerbrokers talking around a table in a lobby isn’t such a headline event.

However, the pictures are spreading amid rumours that Juve could coax Maurizio Sarri to Turin this summer.

Juventus are in need of a new coach following Max Allegri’s departure.

The Italian press have been pushing the ‘Sarri to Juve’ story, and these pictures can be used to support claims that talks are underway between the clubs.
