Former Italian national team coach Maurizio Sarri has reached an agreement with the Blues hierarchy to come into Stamford Bridge as Conte’s successor and the manager could be officially declared as the next Chelsea manager in few days to come.
Reports emanating from the West London outfits claimed that Sarri is set to be offered a two-year contract which will keep him till 2020.
Though Conte still remains as the official manager, Sarri has been working behind the scene as regards to some players he wants to work with at the West London Club, according to the Daily Express.
The British media are reporting that the ex-Napoli manager is interested in Juventus defender Daniele Rugani and he has told Roman Abramovich to make him his first signing in the current transfer market.
Just has Sarri desires, Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is presently in the race for the Italian defender as he has reportedly made an official bid for his signature.
The report states that the Blues have tabled £30m to the Scuddeto Champions for Rugani’s signature but they are still waiting for Juventus verdict on the offer.
Chelsea are certainly keen on returning back to European scene by the end of the 2018-19 season and they are making sure that no stones are left unturned when it comes to getting new, quality players before the start of the upcoming season.
