Napoli boss Maurizio Sarri has been heavily linked with a move to Chelsea to replace his Italian compatriot Antonio Conte. Reports from The Mirror could be a pointer that the Italian tactician has had enough of the proceedings in the Serie A and may leave Napoli when the season comes to a close.
It’s no secret that Sarri’s relationship with Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis has not been void of controversy, and the former Empoli boss has not yet put pen to paper for a new contract with the San Paolo hierarchy. Sarri has established himself as one of the most sought-after managers in Europe presently, and his release clause is valued at 8 million euros.
Following his sides 3:0 defeat away to Fiorentina last Sunday, which deflated Napoli’s high hopes of wrestling the Serie A title away from Juventus, he may have given a hint on his future with his statement. Sarri said:

“I must say, seeing the Premier League have this constant alternation of winners every year, it grows the love for teams and makes everyone have hope of success. It’s a different situation here in Italy. The risk is that we’ll lose many fans, because they cheer on teams that will never win and they know that too well”, Sarri said.
According to the Mirror, Sarri is intent on leaving Napoli and could favor a move to Chelsea if his release clause can be activated.
