Italian Serie A champions Juventus ushered in a new era with the appointment of Maurizio Sarri as their new manager.

Sarri was named the new Juventus boss after leaving Chelsea whom he had joined last summer.

Latest reports have linked several Chelsea players with Juventus in the wake of the exit of Italian tactician Sarri.

The 60-year-old became the Chelsea manager last summer after ending his three-year spell at Italian Serie A giants Napoli.

Sarri signed a two-year contract with the option of another year but the Italian decided to leave the club after one season.

Chelsea defender Emerson Palmieri is one of the Blues players linked with a move to Juventus but it remains to be seen whether the West Londoners will be able to sanction a deal for the Brazilian-born Italian international.

Emerson Palmieri was not the first choice left-back at Chelsea upon joining the club in January 2018 but he has been able to work his way up the ladder to become the first choice left-back ahead of former recipient Marcos Alonso.

Juventus Starting XI (4-3-3): Wojciech Szczesny; Mattia De Sciglio, Leonardo Bonucci, Giorgio Chiellini, Alex Sandro; Miralem Pjanic, Aaron Ramsey, Emre Can; Douglas Costa, Cristiano Ronaldo, Paolo Dybala.
