- Maurizio Sarri agrees two-year contract as Chelsea manager.
- Marina Granovskaia close to finding agreement with Napoli.
- REVEALED: The fee Chelsea will pay to sack Antonio Conte
Maurizio Sarri has reportedly reached an agreement with Chelsea over an initial two-year contract.
That’s according to CalcioNapoli24, who report that Sarri has reached a ‘total agreement’ with the Blues ahead of his proposed move to Stamford Bridge.
Sarri looks set to replace compatriot Antonio Conte, who won the Premier League and FA Cup during his two seasons in SW6.
CalcioNapoli24 believe Sarri’s contract to be two-years in length, with an option for a further one-year extension which will be triggered should the former Napoli boss succeed.
All that remains is for Chelsea to reach an agreement with Napoli to release Sarri from his contract. Marina Granovskaia is already working hard to get that one done.
That’s also believed to be close to completion, with Granovskaia set to part with €5M to satisfy Aurelio De Laurentiis and take Sarri to London.
CalcioNapoli24 believe that the contracts could be signed and sealed in the coming hours. This month-long saga appears to be reaching it’s climax.
