Next Chelsea manager: Napoli hand Blues HUGE Maurizio Sarri boost
The Italian outfit have already replaced the 59-year-old with former Blues boss Carlo Ancelotti this summer.
However, Sarri is still under contract at the San Paulo Stadium for another two years.
Napoli will still have to pay the Italian unless he is bought by another club this summer.
Sarri’s £7m release clause expired at the end of May, and the club are now willing to accept less for their former boss.
According to the Daily Mirror, Chelsea may now to be able to poach the controversial figure for £4.5m.
Sarri has been linked with moves to Real Madrid, Borussia Dortmund and Zenit St. Petersburg in recent weeks.
However, all three clubs have now appointed new managers in recent days.
As for Chelsea, Antonio Conte is still employed by the Blues.
However, the 48-year-old is certainly expected to depart Stamford Bridge this summer.
Conte has always claimed he wants to remain at Chelsea until the end of his contract.
But the former Juventus boss cut a disillusioned figure in west London throughout his second term in England.
Chelsea will need to pay Conte £9m should they sack him this summer.
