Chelsea, Real Madrid target Sarri resists Napoli contract offer

Chelsea have been encouraged in their interest in Napoli coach Maurizio Sarri.

Gazzetta dello Sport says Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis is keen to renew terms with Sarri, with a three-year, €4m (£3.5m) per year deal on the table.

Crucially, if signed, it would remove his buyout clause, though the report adds that Sarri is in no hurry to extend.

And Chelsea may view Sarri's slick, expansive style of play as attractive, but the buyout clause, set at just £7.1m, would make negotiations straight forward.

Sarri has been linked with Chelsea and Real Madrid linked in recent weeks.
