Meanwhile, SunSport gathers that Mourinho could be in line to take over for the third time at Stamford Bridge this summer.

The Portuguese tactician has been out of job since he was sacked in December by Manchester United owing to poor results and bad player management.

Apart from winning the UEFA second tier title for the Blues, Sarri also dragged them to finish third place finish in the out-gone season.

Meanwhile, some sections of the fans are rooting for club legend Frank Lampard to be the next manager should Sarri join Juve this summer.

But, the Blues chiefs want a manager with topflight experience and the 56-year-old has been tipped to take charge of the London outfit.

And the former Real Madrid boss was yesterday pictured in London for talks with a top commercial agent.

Former Juve coach Max Allegri, Ajax's Erik ten Hag, Nuno Espirito Santo at Wolves and Watford's Javi Gracia are also in the frame.

During his first two reigns at the Stamford Bridge, Mourinho won three Premier League titles, three League Cups and the FA Cup.

He told BeIN SPORTS: "What I have in mind is that I would like to be back in the summer, in June, for a new club, for a new pre-season.

"I know exactly what I don't want. That's the reason why I had to say already to three or four different offers. I had to say no.

"And I know what I want, in terms of not a specific club but the nature of the job, the dimension of the job, I know what I want."
