Chelsea refuse to let Maurizio Sarri join Juventus until Italian giants meet their compensation demands


Chelsea are ready to keep Juventus waiting to appoint Maurizio Sarri as their new manager.

Sarri is on the verge of signing a contract with Juventus and he is currently waiting for the Italian side to agree on a £5m deal with the Blues. Sarri has taken charge of 19 clubs in total and has yet to stay more than three seasons at any of them.

However, Chelsea are in no rush to finalize Sarri’s situation.

Chelsea showed how determined they can be in negotiations last summer, no matter the repercussions. The Italian has two years left to run on his £5million-a-year deal.
