Roma Eyeing Summer Move For Chelsea Manager
Italian Serie A giants AS Roma are plotting a summer move for Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri according to widespread reports emanating from the British media.
Maurizio Sarri is under a lot of pressure at Chelsea and AS Roma could capitalise on his situation at Stamford Bridge.
According to the publication from popular media outlet Goal, AS Roma will target Sarri as their next manager if Chelsea sacks him.
AS Roma are looking for a permanent manager after Eusebio Di Francesco was sacked earlier this month shortly after the Italians were eliminated from the Champions League.
Portuguese champions FC Porto booked a quarterfinal place in the Champions League after a 4-3 aggregate win over AS Roma.
FC Porto had lost the first leg of their last 16 tie 2-1 before they managed to overturn that deficit in the second leg at home with the help of extra time.
Roma have appointed experienced manager Claudio Ranieri as the interim manager until the end of this season.
The Italians would be hoping that Sarri is free from his three-year contract at Chelsea by the summer.
Sarri became the Blues manager last summer after compatriot Antonio Conte was sacked.
He’s under pressure at Chelsea with the Blues struggling to make the top four places on the Premier League table.
