Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis has confirmed Maurizio Sarri’s move to Chelsea is almost done.
Chelsea have been looking to replace Antonio Conte since the end of last season and have been locked in negotiations with italian club.
But the only problem has been Chelsea’s refusal to pay the Italian’s £7 million release clause. Chelsea have now reached an agreement with Napoli where they will pay £50m, plus £7m in add-ons, to sign Sarri and Jorginho.
The midfielder was expected to join Manchester City this summer but Chelsea have informed Napoli that they are willing to pay a higher transfer fee for Jorginho if Sarri is also included in the deal.
With Cristiano Ronaldo’s move to Juventus, Real Madrid are likely enter the race to sign Chelsea star Eden Hazard. The london club are prepared to replace the Belgian with Jorginho.
