WOW! Chelsea attempt to convince Sarri to stay

Chelsea management have made a late attempt to convince manager Maurizio Sarri to stay.

Juventus want to make the Italian their new manager and Sarri has said he is homesick.

But The Sun says there is a current stand-off, with Chelsea wanting Sarri, 60, to reconsider his future after he delivered a third-place finish in the Premier League and won the Europa League.

With Champions League football delivered and his methods beginning to work, members of the Blues hierarchy feel that the best option is for Sarri to stay rather than to lose another manager.

Some of Sarri's coaching staff are desperate for them all to go to Juve to try and win the Serie A title.

But currently Chelsea are unwilling to sack him and pay the £5million compensation for the remaining two years of his contract.
