Cristiano Ronaldo has reportedly thrown his weight behind Juventus hiring Maurizio Sarri as the club's next manager.
The Old Lady are currently coach-less after the departure of Massimiliano Allegri after the out-gone season.
Though the Italian won the Serie A title, his failure to succeed in Europe seems to be his greatest undoing having being let go by the Turin club.
Meanwhile, Sarri has been the name that has been tipped to become Juve's coach ahead of the coming season.
The former Napoli lifted his first ever silverware when he led Chelsea to Europa League triumph against Arsenal in Azerbaijan last month.
Sarri's men became victorious after demolishing the Gunners 4-1 to lift their second ever UEFA second tier title and cap off their season on a high.
Report coming from Italy claims representatives of both clubs met after last month's final in Baku as Turin based side hope to succeed with the deal before pre-season preparations.
Other sources state that the London club are willing to let their manager leave only if Juve will pay his £5 million buyout clause.
The publication further stated that the deal to seal a three year deal for Sarri is in its final stages with the Old Lady ready to pay up to £6.2m per season.
According to Tuttosport, superstar Ronaldo is happy at the prospect of the ex-Napoli manager heading to the Italian champions.
He recently told Vanity Fair: "There are medium teams of great players or large teams of average players.
"I work on this [concept]. The champion is the one available to the team, otherwise he is just a good player.
"Fun is contagious if collective. If you have fun alone, boredom comes in five minutes."
Sarri also revealed that the lure of returning back to Italy has proved too hard a decision to turn down. He added: "For us Italians the call of home is strong.
Legit.ng earlier reported that Juventus stars have been hinted that Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri will be appointed as their new manager.
The Italian gaffer who led the Blues to win the Europa League title against Arsenal is set to walk away from the London club next season.
Bruce Buck, the Blues chairman, was spotted meeting with Juve's chairman Andrea Agnelli in the club's team hotel before the final in Baku.
