Chelsea have agreed to let Sarri go after just a year in charge after he informed them that he wanted to return to Italy after winning the Europa League

No official confirmation has yet been received from Chelsea but Sarri is expected to sign a three-year deal to become the new boss of the Serie A champions on Friday, according to Sky Italy.

Juventus also reported on their website that an agreement has been reached for Sarri to join the club but they will have to pay compensation to Chelsea.

The BBC report along similar lines saying a deal in principle has been agreed on and the Bianconeri will have to pay ยฃ5m in compensation to the Blues.

Sarri had one year, worth around ยฃ5m, on his deal, with the option of a further 12 months. It is understood that Juventus will have to pay more than ยฃ5m if certain bonuses are met while the 60-year-old is in charge. The final figure could be as high as ยฃ8m.

The Guardian, The Telegraph, SportItalia and an assortment of others report much the same with Sarri expected to sign a three-year contract to coach Juventus.

With the stalemate over compensation ended, an official announcement from the club could come tomorrow while Sarri may be presented as the new coach next week.

Sarriโ€™s exit does, however, mean Chelsea have lost their head coach and star player in the last week, and also face a two-window transfer ban.

Whoever does replace Sarri will not be able to sign any new players, as things stand, with Chelsea having appealed against their two-window transfer ban imposed by FIFA to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
