Sarri in demand to Chelsea as he seeks clarification on future

Date published: Wednesday 22nd May 2019 1:55

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has told the club he needs a serious discussion on his future as soon as their Europa League final commitments have been concluded.

Sarri, who has two years remaining on his contract but who has been linked with a move to Juventus, insists he is happy to remain at Stamford Bridge.

However, having also been recently linked with Roma, the Italian has proved largely unpopular with the Blues.

Sarri said: “I have two years of my contract here. I have no contract with other clubs. I have to speak with my club after the final. I want to know if they are happy with me.”


Sarri, who admits to being flattered by the link with Juve, added: “I very much like the Premier League. At the moment it’s the most important championship in the world. It’s very exciting to be here but now it’s time to think only about the final.”

Asked if he was happy to remain at Chelsea, he replied: “I’m very happy to stay in the Premier League, with Chelsea, one of the most important clubs in the Premier League.

“I’m very, very happy but we have to discuss the situation. It’s normal. You have to discuss things with the club. It’s like this.”

The Blues have been strongly linked with Frank Lampard as Sarri’s potential replacement.
