Chelsea will make further efforts to land Maurizio Sarri in the coming days, according to reports from Italy.

The Blues had looked as though they were set to turn their attention away from Sarri, with a deal proving to be overly complex to achieve. This is down to the release clause which existed in Sarri’s old contract at Napoli.

Despite the Italian having been dismissed by the Serie A runners-up, a fee of €8m is being demanded by Napoli and legal action has been threatened if these terms are not agreed.

Sarri agrees Chelsea contract .
Maurizio Sarri has reportedly agreed the terms of his Chelsea contract and is closing in on the job at Stamford Bridge. Gazzetta dello Sport, as cited on Calcio Mercato, claim that Sarri will put pen to paper on a two-year deal, which will include the option of a third. During his time at Stamford Bridge, Sarri will earn just shy of £5 million per year, a considerable difference between the £9 million Antonio Conte was taking home. Both clubs are still working on the fee that the Blues will pay to hire Sarri this summer. Due to his departure from the Naples club, Chelsea do not have to pay the full release clause that has been reported, however, there will still be a fee required. Coming to an agreement on what exactly that fee will be appears to be the final touches before an official announcement can be made by both clubs.
