Sarri's departure will cost Juventus £5m million

Despite leading the Blues to third in the Premier League and Europa League glory, Maurizio Sarri will be allowed to leave Chelsea and become Juventus manager next week, according to Sky Sports News.

The 60-year-old former Napoli coach has been strongly linked with the Juventus job left vacant after Massimiliano Allegri resigned following a highly successful five year spell in charge which included five league titles, four Coppa Italia's and reaching two Champions League finals.

His switch to Turin could now be imminent after he informed Chelsea of his desire to head back to his homeland.

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.

He failed to win over a section of fans but still guided Chelsea to the Europa League trophy -- the 4-1 win over Arsenal bringing him his first piece of silverware -- third place in the Premier League and lost to Manchester City on penalties in the League Cup final.

However, Sarri -- whose departure will cost Juventus £5m million ($6.4 million).
