MAURIZIO SARRI is edging closer to the exit at Chelsea as a move to Juventus grows more likely be the day.
Sarri is understood to have told the Blues that he would like that chance to take charge of the Serie A champions following the departure of Maz Allegri.
Chelsea will not agree to a move unless they get a suitable compensation package, and Juve are now working at trying to come up with the £5million it would take to tempt the Premier League club into doing business.

MAURIZIO SARRI didn't appear a happy bunny before the Europa League final and his apparent strop in training has been defended by David Luiz.

“Then Maurizio was angry because he could not make the set-piece because those guys were there watching.
“That’s why he was angry, and then the media mix up a lot of things.”

And of course there's the small matter of Chelsea's transfer ban, still subject to a FIFA and possible CAS appeal.

Conveniently, Higuain is already contracted to Juventus as he's on loan at Stamford Bridge whereas wing-back Emerson became something of a favourite of Sarri's in the past few months.
