Maurizio Sarri will likely remain at Chelsea as club chieftains commence last-minute effort to stop the Italian manager from leaving Stamford Bridge this summer.
According to UK Sun, Serie A champions Juventus are eager to land the 60-year-old as a replacement for Max Allegri, with the Blues manager said to be homesick.
However, Chelsea chiefs are reportedly making last-minute moves to ensure Sarri reconsiders his stand, after guiding the west London dwellers to a third-place finish in the Premier League alongside winning the Europa League.
And after returning Chelsea to Champions League football with his tactics, the clubs eggheads feel that keeping Sarri will be the best decision, rather than commence another search for a new manager.
Already, Sarri’s backup staffs are eager to move to Juventus to try and win the Serie A title, but Chelsea are unwilling to send his packing and cough out £5m as compensation for the remaining 24 months contract.
Interestingly, the Italian tactician penned a three-year contract last summer, after replacing compatriot Antonio Conte at the Bridge.
Club legend Frank Lampard, Max Allegri and even Jose Mourinho are some possible replacement if Sarri quits.
At the moment, Chelsea are yet to make an official approach to Derby, with Lampard, alongside his assistant Jody Morris, are the fans' top choice to take over from Sarri.
The report added that Chelsea are also considering England No 2 Steve Holland, and could turn to Lampard, his experience would be a valuable addition to the staff.
Chelsea legend Petr Cech will also return to west London as Chelsea Sporting Director in July.
Earlier, Legit.ng reported that Chelsea have reportedly opened talks with club's legend Frank Lampard over a possible return to Stamford Bridge as manager.
Current manager Maurizio Sarri is on the verge of leaving the club with report having it that he will be joining Juventus as replacement for Allegri.
And according to the report on Daily Mail, Chelsea have sat down with Frank Lampard and they have discussed the chances of him replacing Sarri.
