As per a report from reliable Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio, the agent of Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri will today begin negotiations with the Blues’ board to facilitate a move to Juventus.
Chelsea 4-1 Arsenal
Sarri’s men travelled to Baku, Azerbaijan last night, for a Europa League final clash with London rivals Arsenal.
While the Gunners required a victory to book their spot in next season’s Champions League, Chelsea had already done so, courtesy of a 3rd-placed Premier League finish.
Both sides, though, were looking for their first silverware of the campaign, with Maurizio Sarri in search of the first title of his career.
And, when all was said and done, clinch his first-ever trophy was exactly what the Chelsea boss managed, in emphatic fashion.
A dominant second-half display on the part of the Stamford Bridge outfit eventually saw goals from Eden Hazard (2), Olivier Giroud and Pedro lead the Blues to a comprehensive 4-1 win.

However, despite it being less than 24 hours since Chelsea tasted victory in Baku, reports have already begun to mount that the Italian is all set for a departure from the club.
In fact, as per the aforementioned report from the reliable Gianluca Di Marzio of Sky Italia, Sarri’s agent, Fali Ramadani, is set to travel from Milan to London today to facilitate a deal to take the 60-year-old to Juventus.
‘The goal is to study an exit strategy that can please everyone.’

When questioned on his future last night, Sarri admitted that though he feels he ‘deserves’ to remain at Stamford Bridge, the final call is ultimately out of his hands:
‘I need to talk to the club and make sure I know what I can do for Chelsea and what Chelsea can do for me.’
‘I love the Premier League and I’m lucky I’m at Chelsea. But at the end of each season you have to sit down and talk.’
‘In my opinion, I deserve to stay at Chelsea. But my opinion is not enough.’
