Mertens backs 'world class' Sarri ahead of mooted Chelsea switch

Italian giants Juventus have reportedly offered Chelsea the chance to sign Gonzalo Higuain, as they look to re-sign Alvaro Morata from the Blues, according to The Evening Standard.

Antonio Conte remains in charge having guided Chelsea to the FA Cup success against Manchester United but it remains expected that he will depart before the new campaign resumes.

"In all honesty, I want to try winning in Italy". Of course last time I was disappointed.

"First and foremost I had to get my place back at Chelsea and get back out on the pitch".

De Laurentiis added: "I gave him time, but then the time expired and I moved on by taking Carlo Ancelotti to Napoli".


"Of course if you're in bad form then you're in bad form and if you're not playing well towards the end of the season then that jeopardises being in the squad. But I never didn't have the belief that I could make the squad".

Antonio Conte is anticipated to be dismissed earlier than the beginning of subsequent season, however the membership are but to finish his employment.

Chelsea have taken a zero-tolerance stance on homophobic language in the past and as it stands, the incident will allegedly count against Sarri if Chelsea decide to part company with Conte in the near future.

"It's hard because you see the speculation for so many months now and it's hard in some way". What will be this summer, will be.

"We've won two major trophies with the manager up til now, so it's been good". "For somebody like me, who loves watching games at home on the sofa, Napoli are spectacular and his brand of football is a joy to watch".
