Chelsea boss Sarri stalls exit for Atalanta, Fiorentina target Pasalic

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri is stalling Mario Pasalic's departure.

The midfielder is a target for Fiorentina and Atalanta and expected to leave Chelsea for another season-long loan.

However for now, Sarri is counting on Pasalic in preseason.

The Italian has included the youngster in the squad for their visit to Perth where they will play local team Perth Glory.

Pasalic spent last season on-loan at Spartak Moscow.
