Chelsea might have ended the 2017-18 season on a high by lifting the FA Cup but their campaign were far from successful and now the Blues are all set to have a new manager.
Well, it’s no secret that Antonio Conte will be shown the door at Stamford Bridge and former Napoli manager Maurizio Sarri is expected to take over by the end of this week.
The Blues have been chasing Sarri for a long time and now finally it seems that the deal is on the verge of completion(if it hasn’t been completed already).
Maurizio Sarri and his representatives are expected to arrive in London within the next 24 hours in order to sign a deal which many believe will be for two years with an option to extend one more year.
And if recent rumours are to believed then the Italian is all set to call Chelsea’s training ground his home.
No, we mean literally.
Reports are claiming that 59-year-old is going to live at Chelsea’s training base in Cobham when he arrives in London.
We still do not know how long Sarri is planning to stay at Cobham but we can have little doubts over the reports given the fact that the manager is known to be quite a workaholic.
This though isn’t the only bad habit that Maurizio Sarri possesses and is known to be a heavy smoker who often smokes in between matches.
Chelsea surely have some tough days ahead of him given the fact that Roman Abramovich’s side are yet to make any new signing during the summer transfer window. So as soon as Maurizio Sarri walks in through that door, the Italian will have roll up his sleeves and dive straight into the transfer market.
