Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has reportedly agreed a three-year deal to become the new Juventus boss - after Pep Guardiola rejected the Italians.

The European giants are on the look out for a new head coach following the announcement that Massimiliano Allegri will step down at the end of the season.

They had earmarked Manchester City manager Guardiola as their No.1 priority, but the Spaniard has opted to remain in England and continue his project at the Etihad Stadium.

Juve soon made Sarri, who impressed in Serie A with Napoli, their new target, though Antonio Conte and Jose Mourinho were also mentioned as candidates.
