Chelsea staff appear conflicted about which manager they want to take the reigns at Stamford Bridge if, as expected, Maurizio Sarri departs this summer.

Sarri looks all but certain to return to his native Italy to join Juventus after the Serie A champions named him as their number one target following the departure of Massimiliano Allegri, and a deal could be completed as soon as next week.

It is believe Allegri is one of those in contention to take the hot-seat at Chelsea , along with ex-player Frank Lampard and Ajax boss Erik ten Hag.

However, according to journalist Dean Jones there is a conflict of interests between the coaching and playing staff and the board of directors with regards to who they want as manager next season.
