Chelsea close in on Maurizio Sarri after Napoli agree deal with Ancelotti

Managerial merry-go-round

Chelsea could be closing in on the signing of Napoli boss Maurizio Sarri as Carlo Ancelotti agrees deal to join Italian giants next season.

Carlo Ancelotti has long been linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge after a lacklustre Premier League campaign.

The Blues eventually finished fifth and will have to navigate the Europa League next season.

That has lead to suggestions that Conte could be sacked but not only for his results, also the rift between management and recruitment policy.

The system at Chelsea has put a pretty big strain on the relationship between Conte and the club and it’s likely he will want to leave the club anyway.

The future

While Antonio Conte is the past of Chelsea, the future looks bright under Maurizio Sarri.

The Italian almost guided Napoli to a shock Serie A title, though Juventus were just able to pip them to the line.

That has not put a damper on Sarri’s reputation though, who played some incredible football this season.

Now, The Guardian has revealed that Carlo Ancelotti has agreed a deal to take over at Napoli.

It is said that he will earn around £5.27m per season and that means that Sarri will be leaving the club.

While Antonio Conte is yet to leave Chelsea, it is likely that he will be sacked at some point in the next week or so.

That will allow the inevitable appointment of Sarri as the Stamford Bridge boss.

Though, if they don’t move quickly, he could be snapped up by Zenit who are also sniffing around the Italian.
