Reports in Italy say Sarri will leave Chelsea, who will let him go, although not for free. His next move, after winning the Europa League last week, could be to Juventus, who are seeking a replacement for Allegri.

Meanwhile, Chelsea are already thinking of the future: as well Javi Gracia, who had a brilliant season at Watford, leading them to the FA Cup final, ex-Juve coach Allegri is also an option. 

Another name on the table is a club legend in Frank Lampard. The former midfielder is currently the boss of Derby County, who he almost led to the Premier League this season. The Rams were beaten by Aston Villa in the playoff final. 

Javi Gracia arrived in the Premier League in 2018 and helped Watford stay up. This past season saw him lead them to the cup final, where they lost to Man City, and an 11th-placed finish in the league. He fits the profile owner Roman Abramovich is looking for.
