Napoli President Thinks Remarkable Managerial Swap Deal With Chelsea

Sarri set for talks over Napoli future next week amid Chelsea links

Sarri set for talks over Napoli future next week amid Chelsea links

Napoli have enjoyed a fantastic Serie A campaign this season, falling just short of beating Juventus to the Scudetto, and Sarri has been the orchestrator from the touchline, attracting interest from other clubs - most notably Chelsea, whose interest has peaked following a disappointing season of their own. And although Chelsea has an FA Cup final against fierce rivals Manchester United, manager Antonio Conte is bound to get the sack if he delivers the trophy or not.

That area of the squad is undoubtedly an issue for Chelsea, as they managed just 62 goals in 38 Premier League games this season, the lowest tally of the top six sides. The Italian is quoted to be a "dead man walking" at Stamford Bridge and has fallen out with the transfer board which will make his firing quite imminent in a few weeks.

Sarri has confirmed his Napoli deal contains an exit clause which Chelsea appear willing to meet, as reports in Italy claim the club's president, Aurelio De Laurentiis, is already in talks with Carlo Ancelotti about succeeding him.

Conte is expected to leave Stamford Bridge this summer and Sarri is the favourite to step into his shoes.

Cuper gave first-time call-ups to Tarek, defender Mahmdoud Hamdy, midfielder Mahmoud Abdel-Aziz, and forward Ahmed Gomaa. The team will play in Group A along with host Russia, Saudi Arabia and Uruguay. "The journey is hard ".

Napoli are set for their second runners-up finish in three Serie A seasons under Sarri, however, the Italian's future is still far from certain amid links with English giants Chelsea and Arsenal.

Those goals helped Juve to a domestic double, and so he certainly has the experience, pedigree and winning mentality to flourish anywhere with Sarri knowing all about that having coached him at Napoli prior to his move to Turin.

Suggestions that Higuain could come to Chelsea have come about after Juventus' interest in re-signing the unsettled Alvaro Morata, who has been inconsistent in his first season here.
