Chelsea fans have slammed their own club after claims that the Blues will let Maurizio Sarri depart Stamford Bridge this summer for Juventus.
Despite guiding the west Londoners to a third-place Premier League finish and Europa League glory, rumours have run rampant that the Italian manager will be heading to Turin and SportItalia journalist Alfredo Pedulla has reported that the Chelsea hierarchy have agreed to release Sarri from his contract.

A turbulent debut season in England has seen the manager’s role questioned on numerous occasions, but the campaign still ended on a high as the former Napoli manager won his first ever major trophy with the crushing 4-1 defeat of Arsenal in Baku.
However, Sarri’s job is still far from secure and with Juventus searching for a Massimiliano Allegri replacement, the 60-year old is seemingly jumping at the chance to return to Serie A.
Chelsea have been strongly linked with a move for Frank Lampard after the Blues legend guided a youthful Derby team to the cusp of Premier League promotion before losing out to Aston Villa in the playoff final.
Sarri may have received intense criticism from sections of the Chelsea support this season, but after a stunning culmination to the season, many fans on Twitter are furious that the former banker might be on his way out.
