Most Chelsea fans may get what they badly wanted afterall as Juventus are reported to have reached an agreement with Maurizio Sarri for a return to Italy.
However, a final decision won’t be made until after the Champions League final.
The Italian giants are in the market for a new manager following Massimiliano Allegri’s decision to step down.
Juve are keen on Sarri, who had a mixed debut campaign at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea came close to sacking him following a mid-season blip, but he turned it around, guiding them to a third-place finish and both the Carabao Cup and Europa League final.
But some fans are still concerned about his playing style, which he may struggle to improve on if their transfer ban appeal is unsuccessful.
Juve are keen to bring him back to Italy, paving the way for Derby boss Frank Lampard to seal a romantic return to Chelsea.
However, the Old Lady are not ready to commit to Sarri until after Liverpool and Tottenham meet in Madrid this weekend.
