SARR GRAPES Sarri wants to take Chelsea duo Higuain and Emerson with him to Juventus
Charo|Jun. 10, 2019
MAURIZIO SARRI is reportedly planning to leave Chelsea with Gonzalo Higuain and Emerson if he takes charge at Juventus.
Gazzetta dello Sport claims the former Napoli boss is closing in on a deal to replace Max Allegri in Turin.
Sarri finished third in his debut Premier League season, while also guiding Chelsea to Europa League glory and a place in the Carabao Cup final.
However, the tactician has not been fully appreciated by some fans and sections of the media despite getting the short end of the stick upon his arrival in London last summer.
And it’s reckoned Sarri is now set to have the last laugh by landing a mega-money deal with Italian champions Juventus .
Chelsea are now scrambling to find a replacement, with inexperienced Derby manager Frank Lampard in line to make the giant leap up from the Championship to the top flight.
But Sarri isn’t ready to leave Chelsea quietly, and it’s reckoned he will block any attempts by the Blues to make Higuain’s loan deal from Juventus permanent.
The Argentine moved to Stamford Bridge in January and scored five goals for the club.
Chelsea have options to either extend his loan by another season for £15million, or sign him permanently for over £30m.
However, Sarri has a strong relationship with Higuain after previously working with him at Napoli, where the hitman scored 38 goals in a single season.
And he believes Higuain would be the perfect partner for Cristiano Ronaldo in Juventus’ attack.
Meanwhile, left-back Emerson could also be on his way to Turin after ousting Marcos Alonso from Sarri’s Chelsea XI.
The Brazil-born Italy international has impressed Blues supporters this season after a difficult first six months in the 2017/18 campaign under Antonio Conte.
And Sarri is now ready to continue working with Emerson in Serie A, with the defender potentially replacing the out-of-favour Alex Sandro.
However, with Chelsea currently under a transfer embargo, it remains to be seen if Roman Abramovich will sanction Emerson’s exit.
