The speculations surrounding the future of West London outfit Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri is still unending as a new name has surfaced to take over his job.

It has been claimed that Chelsea owner Abramovich is considering showing Maurizio Sarri the way out of the club after a mixed season as well as his worrying relationship with the club fans.

This has made the Blues boss linked with a number of offers, especially in his country home. AS Roma and Juventus are all keen to hand him an escape route.

However, the latest report claims that former Real Madrid boss Julen Lopetegui is interested in having the job of the Chelsea manager after his short spell at the Spanish La Liga outfit.

Awaiting the result of the Europa League, which could determine Maurizio Sarri’s future, Julen Lopetegui is already on the standby to return to the dugout but with English Premier League sides.
