New Juventus manager Maurizio Sarri has been struck down with sickness ahead of the Italian Serie A opener with Parma this weekend.
The former Chelsea manager is down with flu as confirmed via a statement from the official website of Juventus earlier today.
Sarri was named the Juventus manager this summer.
He has a three-year contract at Juventus until the end of the 2021/22 season and the Italian tactician will earn £6.1m at the club.
Juventus have won the last eight league titles in the Italian top flight and a month league title will be the target for Maurizio Sarri and his players.
In addition, Sarri and Juventus are keen to end their long wait for the Champions League title this season.
Juventus are yet to win the trophy in 23 years and counting.
The Italians have reached two finals in the last four years and they are one of the favourites to win this year’s edition alongside the likes of Spanish La Liga champions Barcelona and Premier League champions Manchester City.
Maurizio Sarri spent just one season as the Chelsea manager and it ended with the Europa League title made possible by the 4-1 win over London rivals Arsenal in their final clash last season.
EPL: What United must watch out for in transfer dealings revealed
It is no longer news that Man United will engage in this summer transfer window and are hoping to be more active than any other club this term.
The Red Devils have identified a number of needs for the team with Borussia Dortmund player, Jadon Sancho as their major target while a number of names have been mentioned to be on their wish list.
However, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been advised by the club legend, Ryan Giggs to avoid bringing in too many stars that will not improve the depth of the team.

According to him, the Red Devils must borrow a leaf from their rivals, Man City, and focus on improving their depth with their signings as that is the only thing needed to challenge in the English Premier League.
Ryan Giggs told Webby and O’Neill that stars who are young get a little bit tired in the course of the season and that is always disadvantaged
He noted that this is what Man City have been doing when they bring in new players, noting that when they make any substitution, it doesn’t make the team weaker but makes them stronger.
Ryan Giggs, therefore, emphasized that the players that must come in should be able to challenge the big boys in the team to enhance competition.
EPL: Man United youngster is staying at Old Trafford?
The emerging report has proven beyond doubt that Man United’s young centre-back Teden Mengi will be staying at the club for the next season and would be handed more first-team role.
The 18-year-old impressive for the Red Devils Under-23 and U18 teams in the 2019/20 campaign, playing a vital role in their run to the FA Youth Cup semi-finals.
However, he is being rewarded with a new squad number at the club and this hints that he would be having some time with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first team.

- Arsenal joined by EPL duo for Barcelona star
Teden Mengi, who previously had the No.71 will now wear No.43, as revealed by the photographs posted by United ahead of their Europa League last 16-second leg against LASK.
No doubt that he has impressed manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer that could influence the decision for him to be part of the Europa League games as a substitution and maybe more chances in the coming season.
The Red Devils are expected to send a number of their young players away from the club on loan deals but that would not be happening with Teden Mengi.
Man United will hope to have another revelation of talent and progress with Teden Mengi just as it happened with Greenwood in the just-concluded season.
EPL: Liverpool to storm Arsenal for promising youngster
One of the battles North London outfit Arsenal face is keeping one of the biggest prospects, Folarin Balogun at the club for more seasons and that has been difficult.
Folarin Balogun has already told the Gunners that he would not be signing a new deal and that makes him a subject of transfer this summer window so as not to lose him for free.
The 19-year-old striker, who scored 10 goals in 15 Premier League 2 appearances this season is keen on first-team football and not convinced he can get that any time soon under manager Mikel Arteta at the Emirates Stadium, the reason why he wants to leave the club.

A number of clubs in England and abroad have been monitoring the situation with Folarin Balogun and are ready to move in, having watched him severally with his youth side.
However, current English Premier League champions, Liverpool is one of the clubs that have not hidden their interest in Folarin Balogun and are willing to pay for his service, according to Sky Sports.
Arsenal want a minimum of £8 million for Folarin Balogun which the Reds team are willing to pay this summer window.
A decision is yet to be reached by the Gunners and the player as they will both want to consider all the options available to take the right step.
EPL: Arsenal urged to move in for Kante
One player that is a surprise on the exit list of West London outfit, Chelsea is N’Golo Kante with reports claiming that he could be leaving the club at the end of the season.
N’Golo Kante joined the Blues team after helping Leicester City win the English Premier League to become a star and important player at the Stamford Bridge.
The story began to change for the French player when former manager Maurizio Sarri joined Chelsea and brought in Jorginho to take the role previously handled by N’Golo Kante.

It is yet, an unchanged story for the former Leicester City star as he has been battling for playing time under manager Frank Lampard. He is now tipped to leave the club this summer window.
However, Arsenal have been urged to move in for the World Cup winner as manager Mikel Arteta battles to add depth to his midfield. The Gunners are in the race for Atletico Madrid midfielder, Thomas Partey but are yet to strike a deal.
There is no doubt that the Blues player will be a great addition to the North London outfit and his settling at the club will be easier than a player who has not been in London before. The only challenge might be in his weekly wage.
EPL: Arsenal handed major boost as Crystal Palace bid gets rejected
English Premier League club, Arsenal are also part of the suitors, interested in the signature of QPR star Eberechi Eze, alongside others.
QPR are expecting to part ways with the Nigerian international this summer window having learned a lot of interest in the player from English Premier League sides.
The latest report now reveals that Crystal Palace have gone ahead of the North London outfit with a £16m bid but it was rejected with the Hoops hoping to get a better deal for the player.

The Eagles are keen to strengthen their attack ahead of next season and see Eze as a perfect option after seeing him excel in the Championship this season.
However, the development remains a major hope for the Gunners who are also interested in the signature of Eberechi Eze and it gives the club more time to prepare a bid for the quality forward.
It is now unclear if the Gunners value Eberechi Eze more than £16 million and will be ready to invest such an amount for his signature because of the less need for attackers in the team.
With Arsenal hoping to keep Gabon international striker, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang at the club for more seasons, there is no way they will seek to invest in another striker.
EPL: Arsenal to reward impressive player with a new deal
Emiliano Martinez is one player that earned the trust of the Arsenal family with his impressive performance during the restart of the season.
He got the chance when first-choice goalkeeper, Bernd Leno got injured and has proved that he can do the job without any doubt.
It is now reported that the Gunners are ready to give Emiliano Martinez a new deal as a reward that will keep him at the club for more years and could probably get more playing time under manager Mikel Arteta.

The 27-year-old Argentinean barely featured for the Gunners but he still had a very good end of the season as he was instrumental in Arsenal’s 2-1 win over Chelsea in the FA Cup finals.
The Sun is, therefore, reporting that Gabon international forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will not be alone on the table for a new deal but would be joined by Emiliano Martinez.
What is unknown is if Emiliano Martinez will seek to remain at the club as a second goalkeeper if Bernd Leno returns or will consider a move away to start a new life elsewhere.
Following his impressive performance, Emiliano Martinez is already receiving bids from a number of clubs in England and abroad and that could tempt him for a move.
EPL: Man United favoured by Angers for Rayan Ait-Nouri
English Premier League club, Man United have been issued a clear chance to sign French club, Angers player Rayan Ait-Nouri this summer transfer window.
The Red Devils have been on the radar of the star player and have been monitoring the situation with the club as contacts have already been made for a deal to happen.
Man United have been facing a battle with their Manchester rivals, Man City for a deal for Rayan Ait-Nouri but they seem to be in charge after their previous steps taken to convince a move to happen.
However, Angers manager Stephane Moulin is expressing confidence that the Red Devils will be able to land Rayan Ait-Nouri if the right thing is done as he explained that the club is not ready to stand in the way of the player for a move this transfer window.

According to Foot Mercato, Rayan Ait-Nouri has been visiting the Old Trafford and has had informal talks about the possibility of his move this window.
No doubt that his trial with the club has yielded results with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer already convinced of his quality.
Rayan Ait-Nouri is expected to receive formal offers from Man United and Man City and is expected to make a decision that suits him.
EPL: Former United trio involved in transfer move
Former Manchester United trio Callum Gribbin, Cameron Borthwick-Jackson and George Tanner have all secured moves in the summer transfer window.
The transfer means that the former Red Devils youngsters will be participating in the League Two next season.
Callum Gribbin has been confirmed to have joined the newly-promoted Barrow AFC while George Tanner signed for Carlisle United ahead of next season’s challenge.
Meanwhile, Cameron Borthwick-Jackson will now be wearing the colours of Oldham on a permanent basis following a successful loan spell with the club last season.

Callum Gribbin was very highly rated during his days at Old Trafford. He was expected to break into the first team and be part of the current team but that did not happen before he left the club.
It would be recalled that Callum Gribbin trained with the first-team squad under both Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho and was tipped to have a great prospect.
Man United have got a very rich youth side but unfortunately, most of the players end up not living their potential as they have an early move away from the club.
This limits their progress in most cases like it is with the trio- Callum Gribbin, Cameron Borthwick-Jackson, and George Tanner who are all now in the lower divisions.
