Napoli officially part ways with Maurizio Sarri as Ancelotti agrees to join

Confirmation

Italian giants Napoli have today confirmed that they have parted ways with manager Maurizio Sarri with Carlo Ancelotti set to take over.

The Serie A side actually impressed this season under Sarri and pushed Juventus all the way to the line in the league.

That has all been while playing some scintillating football under the Italian but they are set for change this summer.

Sarri has been looking to leave the club to explore new pastures for next season and is heavily linked with a move to Chelsea.

Former Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti will also be taking over at Napoli according to reports.

Fabricio Romano has revealed that Ancelotti has already signed a deal with the club and his appointment is soon to be confirmed.

Chelsea implications

The question now turns to where will Sarri be heading?

Having been so closely linked with Chelsea for months now, it is expected that he will be headed to Stamford Bridge.

The club are set to sack Antonio Conte after a lacklustre season in the Premier League and despite winning the FA Cup.

With Sarri now free to negotiate with any club, he will now likely enter talks with Chelsea for when Conte is sacked.

Though, the Blues will have to move quickly with Zenit said to be offering the Italian a big wage to manage in Russia.
