Chelsea Manager Update: Sarri Likely to Stay at Napoli

Reports out of Italy this morning, from gianlucadimarzio.com, that Napoli President and Sarri may be close to a deal to get Sarri to stay in Naples. Sky Sport’s Franceso Modugno reported a follow-up meeting is due to take place tomorrow. It is rumored that his salary will increase to 3.8M net of taxes plus bonuses with the deal reaching 4.4M and the most important piece, the elimination of the exit clause.

This is another bump in the road for Chelsea, who faces Manchester United in the FA Cup final on Saturday. With Conte still rumored to be leaving at the end of the year, Chelsea’s managerial race will begin next week. Sarri was thought to be the front-runner but now it looks like the odds will favor another candidate.

The current odds are:

  • Luis Enrique – 7/2
  • Massimiliano Allegri – 5/1
  • Mauricio Pochettino – 7/1
  • Leonardo Jardim – 8/1
  • Brendan Rodgers – 8/1
