Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has reportedly asked the club to let him return to Italy this summer, as he hopes to take charge of Juventus
The Italian tactician helped the Blues wrap up the Europa League title two days ago, but his Premier League adventure seems to be approaching its end nonetheless.
Although the former Napoli coach has enjoyed a pretty successful debut season at Stamford Bridge, leading his team to the Premier League top-four finish, he has been heavily linked with a summer departure.

Sarri has allegedly informed Chelsea that he wants to go back to Italy, with his representatives already negotiating the terms of his release.
The Pensioners reportedly consider appointing the ex-Chelsea legend Franck Lampard as a new chief of staff following his impressive Championship campaign with Derby County.

Meanwhile, the Bianconeri have recently dismissed Massimiliano Allegri and are now on the hunt for his successor.
After failing to convince Antonio Conte to return to the Allianz Stadium, the reigning Serie A holders have placed Sarri on top of their summer priorities.
