Sarri linked with Juventus following Allegri exit

Maurizio Sarri is being linked with the vacant managerial role at Juventus, after Massimiliano Allegri announced he will leave the club this summer.

Allegri announced yesterday that he will leave the Italian champions after five years, having won the Serie A title in each season since taking charge in 2014.

Chelsea manager Sarri’s future at the club is uncertain, with speculation having mounted that the 60-year-old will be dismissed from his role at Stamford Bridge following this month’s Europa League final.

Sarri has endured an indifferent debut season in West London since joining from Napoli last summer, though the Italian has guided the club to two cup finals and secured Champions League football for next season.

Despite this, owner Roman Abramovich is said to be concerned by Sarri’s relationship with the club’s fans, with the Chelsea support having vocally displayed their unhappiness at the manager’s methods.

Sarri said last week that he wants to stay in English football beyond this season, despite having become an unpopular figure at the club.

However, according to Italian outlet SNAI, Juventus are believed to be monitoring Sarri’s situation at Stamford Bridge, and could move to bring him back to Serie A should he leave Chelsea this summer, while Roma are also thought to be interested in the former Napoli boss.
