Chelsea news: Chelsea players threaten to quit if Maurizio Sarri remains in charge

Senior Chelsea players will look to leave the club this summer if Maurizio Sarri remains in charge, according to reports.

Sarri’s future at Stamford Bridge is up in the air, as Chelsea prepare to take on Arsenal in the Europa League final.

The Italian is very unpopular among a section of Chelsea fans and has faced criticism for his style of play in his first season in London.

The Evening Standard claim no decision has been taken about Sarri after he led the club to a third-place finish in the Premier League.

Juventus reportedly want to bring Sarri in to replace Massimiliano Allegri, who announced his exit from the club after five years as their head coach.

While Chelsea weigh up their options, it is understood they could face a player exodus if they keep Sarri on, with some senior players prepared to leave if their current manager remains in place.

Chelsea are facing a transfer ban this summer and the result of their efforts to have that ban frozen is expected to play a big part in the future of Sarri.

Frank Lampard is also being linked with the managerial position at Chelsea after steering Derby into the Championship play-off final.

Sarri has repeatedly insisted he wants to stay at Chelsea ahead of the showdown with Arsenal in Baku at the end of the month.

N’Golo Kante is expected to be fit for the final after returning to training on Monday, while Henrikh Mkhitaryan has been forced to withdraw from the Arsenal squad that will travel to Baku due to security concerns.
