Maurizio Sarri slashed to 1/4 for Chelsea job as reports claim deal is close

Bookmaker Betway has slashed the odds on Maurizio Sarri becoming the next Chelsea manager following reports that he is on the brink of reaching an agreement with the Blues.


The future of Antonio Conte was the subject of much speculation during a disappointing second season for the Italian at Stamford Bridge that saw the team fail to build on the Premier League title success they achieved in his maiden campaign, and even though he has not yet been given his marching orders it is widely believed that the ex-Juventus boss will be moving on this summer.

And if reports are correct, Conte will be replaced by another Italian this summer in the form of Napoli boss Sarri.

According to Italian football journalist Matteo Pedrosi, the 59-year-old could be appointed by Chelsea as early as next week and he could be followed by three Napoli players – Piotr Zielinski, Elseid Hysaj and Kalidou Koulibaly – as well as Juventus hitman Gonzalo Higuain, who played under Sarri in Naples before moving to Turin in 2016.

The news has forced bookmakers to slash their odds on Sarri becoming the next permanent boss of the London club and Betway is now just 1/4 about him taking the reins at the Bridge this summer. 

“Maurizio Sarri is back in pole position in the race to become Chelsea’s next boss, having previously drifted out to 9/4 around the same time that Laurent Blanc was heading into Evens,” Betway’s Alan Alger told Bettingpro.com.

“Blanc is now out to 5/1 while the recent weight of support for Sarri suggests Chelsea may not be far away from announcing their man for the job.

“Some interest remains in Luis Enrique taking up the position at 8/1, with the rest of the pack, including Slavisa Jokanovic and Zinedine Zidane (both 14/1), lingering with outside chances.”
