From Italy: Juventus looking to include transfers in Maurizio Sarri's Chelsea exit

Chelsea & Real have nearly agreed a fee for Hazard

Despite Sarri's position having been tenuous earlier this year, Chelsea had no great desire to sack their head coach this summer after seeing him secure a third-place finish in the Premier League and win the Europa League in his tumultuous first campaign outside Italy.

Sarri, who unusually for a top football coach came to the sport after a successful career as a banker, has enjoyed a fine end to a rollercoaster season with Chelsea.

"The Neapolitans know the love I feel for them", he added.

Real Madrid have an agreement in place to sign Ferland Mendy from Olympique Lyon, but want the French worldwide left-back to undergo a second medical before they conclude the transfer - a state of affairs that looks like pushing any announcement of a deal back until Monday. Loyalty is giving 110% when you are there.

Italian worldwide Jorginho, who Sarri brought with him from Napoli, wants him to stay and is not so sure the Neapolitans will take so kindly to him accepting the Juventus post. "We'll see what happens".

The Italian champions have met the former Napoli manager and his agent and are expected to buy out the remainder on Sarri's £5 million (S$8.7 million)-a-season contract to secure him as the successor to Massimiliano Allegri.

"It will be a betrayal for us Neapolitans once it becomes official".

"It's speculation that gives me displeasure", Insigne told a news conference ahead of Italy's Euro 2020 qualifier against Greece.

"He was very important to me for many reasons". For me, he did so much, he changed me a lot. "We are Italy, we deserve to participate".
