"Maurizio Sarri to Chelsea in a done deal" - Former England international says Blues will soon make Sarri move official


Former England international Paul Mariner believes Maurizio Sarri will be Chelsea's new boss.

The 65-year-old has claimed that the Blues are just dotting the i's and crossing the t's before finalising the transfer.

The former Napoli boss is expected to take over from Antonio Conte who will be sacked next week according to reports in Italy.

"They do [still have a manager] but that's never worried them in the past has it?," Mariner told ESPN.

"They're a little bit cut-throat to say the least. I think with Sarri, I think it's a done deal.

"I think it's just the semantics, the money, how long is the contract, and so on and so forth."
