Premier League giants Chelsea have announced the exit of Italian tactician Maurizio Sarri.

His much-anticipated exit was confirmed by Chelsea earlier on Sunday afternoon.

Maurizio Sarri has since been appointed the Juventus manager following his exit from Chelsea.

The 60-year-old will replace Maximiliano Allegri at Juventus after the former AC Milan manager left the Italian champions at the end of the recently concluded season.

Allegri led Juventus to five straight league titles before his exit this summer as well as two Champions League finals which both ended in defeats.

His replacement at Juventus Sarri has put pen to paper on a three-year deal to become the new Old Lady manager until the end of the 2021/22.

Maurizio Sarri has left Chelsea after one year at Stamford Bridge having been appointed the Blues boss last summer.

The former Empoli and Napoli manager led Chelsea to third place behind champions Manchester City and runners-up Liverpool as well as the Carabao Cup and Europa League finals.

Manchester City beat Chelsea on penalties in the Carabao Cup final before the Gunners were beaten 4-1 by Chelsea to win the Europa League trophy.

Sarri had one year left on his Chelsea contract and Juventus had to pay over £5m in compensation for him to be named their new manager.
