Former Napoli manager Maurizio Sarri could finally be appointed Chelsea manager within the next few days, according to Matt Law of the Telegraph.
The Sarri saga has been dragged out over the entire first month of the summer transfer window, essentially preventing Chelsea to conduct any business thus far.
Marina Granovskaia has been seemingly reluctant to stump up the cash in order to both release Sarri from his Napoli contract and dismiss Conte.
However, with pre-season fast approaching, we now have no choice but to bow to the demands of Aurelio De Laurentiis and Conte’s entourage.
Matt Law claims that Chelsea will finally open their chequebook in order to get Sarri through the door and wave goodbye to Conte after two-years.
The deal is expected to be completed this coming week. Though, after a plethora of reports claiming the same in recent weeks, we’ll believe it when we see it.
