Napoli boss Maurizio Sarri is set to turn his back on advances from Chelsea and pen a new deal with the Serie A club.
Sarri has been heavily linked with taking over from Antonio Conte at Chelsea this summer but after talks in Naples today reports, from multiple sources, claim the in-demand Napoli coach is set to reaffirm his commitment to the club.
They report that Napoli have offered him a €3.5million-a-year deal that can reach €4million with bonuses and add-ons.
That would make Sarri, 59, the highest paid manager in Serie A after Juventus boss Max Allegri.
Goal also report Sarri is ready to extend his tenure at San Paolo and turn down his suitors after “an entirely positive” meeting.
Sarri, who has transformed Napoli into Italy’s second club behind Juve, has apparently been approached by Stamford Bridge officials but they have failed to trigger his €8million release clause, report Calciomercato.
