Maurizio Sarri is set to finalize his Juventus move over the weekend, Daily Mail understand.

On Friday, the Italian has told Chelsea director Marina Granovskaya that he wants to move on from the Blues and would like the club to release him from the contract.

So, Chelsea bosses have eventually green-lighted his move to Juventus.

Then, the 60-year-old has also had talks with Juventus chairman Andrea Agnelli and vice president Pavel Nedved in London to discuss becoming Massimiliano Allegri’s successor.


On Saturday, Sarri arrived at Milan where he has had a round of negotiations with Juve sporting director Fabio Paratici. It is understood that the Italian has agreed on a £6.2million-per-season, three-year agreement.

On Monday, the manager will return to his home in Tuscany and all the agreements should be in place by that time.

Daily Mail also report that Juventus consider absorbing Maurizio Sarri’s £5m compensation fee into their transfer inquiry over the left-back Emerson Palmieri.
