    MAURIZIO SARRI looks set to 'leave Chelsea with their blessing' in the next few days and complete his switch to Juventus.

    According to The Times, the manager and the club have come to a mutual agreement that will see Sarri depart after just 11 months at Stamford Bridge.

    Sarri was happy to see out the final year of his deal with more public backing next term.

    But it is understood a meeting took place on Friday and the decision was made.

    IT is expected to be a summer of big spending in the Premier League and across the globe.

    But while Real Madrid keen on attracting the likes of Eden Hazard, Neymar and Paul Pogba, Arsenal and Chelsea face limited, if not barren, transfer window.

    The Gunners’ defeat in the Europa League final means they could only have around £40m to spend, and they are willing to splash some of that on Thomas Meunier.

    But Unai Emery’s side are set to lose out of the PSG right-back with the Belgian making it clear that he would prefer to join Manchester United.

    The Premier League duo are also expected to go head-to-head for Stuttgart teenager Ozan Kabak.

    Despite only 19 and joining 12 months ago, the centre-back is available for a cut-price fee of £13m for the German side’s relegation from the Bundesliga.

    Chelsea are still unsure whether they can sign any players this summer, but one star eyeing a move away is Tammy Abraham.

    The Blues do not want to sell too many players if they have a transfer ban looming over their heads and will only let the England star leaving for £25m or more.

    Having played a vital role in securing them a promotion to the Premier League, Aston Villa want Abraham on a permanent deal – but Chelsea’s demands could prove too much.
