Juventus are hoping to finalise an agreement with Chelsea boss, Maurizio Sarri, to become their new manager in the coming days.

Sarri, who won the first trophy of his managerial career with last week’s Europa League triumph in Baku, is the Bianconeri’s No.1 choice to replace Max Allegri.

He has held discussions with Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia and made clear that he wants to leave Stamford Bridge.

The 60-year-old flew to Milan on Saturday and it’s understood that he will hold talks with Juventus’ sporting director, Fabio Paratici, on Monday.

Juve, who just clinched their eighth successive Serie A title, are confident of tying up a deal which would see Sarri pen a £19million, three-year contract.
