Chelsea and Juventus reached agreement for Italian key man

Juventus have now reached an agreement with Chelsea that will see Maurizio Sarri return to his homeland.

The Italian manager has been linked with a return to Serie A, with Juventus the front-runner after Massimilano Allegri left the side at the end of last campaign.

Now it is claimed that the Turin-based club have arranged with the Premier League giants that will see Maurizio Sarri return to Italy.

The report adds that Maurizio Sarri is understood to be confirmed as Juventus manager in the coming days, and he will put pen to paper on a three-year contract with the Serie A giants.

If the move does go through, Maurizio Sarri will have spent just one campaign at the Bridge, winning the Europa League and reaching the EFL Cup final.

Meanwhile, Chelsea star Tiemoue Bakayoko has admitted that he would love to play for Paris Saint-Germain one day and the midfielder is now linked with a move for the French champions.

In an interview with French news outlet L’Equipe, the former AC Milan star conceded that he would be interested in playing for the Ligue 1 giants.

The 24-year-old spent last year on loan at San Siro following a difficult first season in English football with Chelsea.

The France international played well for his temporary club under Gennaro Gattuso, despite his relationship with the head coach growing progressively frosty towards the end of his spell in Serie A.

It was Leonardo who recruited the French midfielder for Milan during his time as the sporting director, and he has recently moved to French capital.
