Emerging reports suggest that Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis blocked Chelsea from signing Elseid Hysaj in the summer according to player’s agent.
Sarri joined Chelsea last summer and took Jorginho with him. He was also keen on taking Hysaj to Stamford Bridge too.
However, De Laurentiis refused to allow Sarri to poach any more of the club’s players.
The right-back has dropped in form at the start of the season and has been heavily criticized.
His agent Guiffredi said: ‘Those who criticise him probably never make mistakes, but the rest of us are mere mortals”
‘Without that clause he probably would have gone to Chelsea this summer.
‘People forget that he was one of the best two or three full-backs in Europe last season. Then it just takes two or three matches for him to become a donkey.
‘I always say to let everyone talk and then respond on the pitch.’
