AS Roma want to bring Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri back to Serie A

Roma are reportedly keen to bring Maurizio Sarri back to Italy as their manager, despite recently appointing Claudio Ranieri. 

Sarri is currently favourite to be the next Premier League manager to lose his job after a disappointing season with Chelsea. 

Roma however are huge admirers of the 60-year-old for his work in Serie A with Napoli, and reportedly would make a move should he leave Stamford Bridge.

Ranieri took charge of Roma two weeks ago after they sacked Eusebio Di Francesco, but only on a short-term contract. 

The Evening Standard report that Roma are still monitoring Sarri's situation at Chelsea, who he joined last summer for his first managerial role outside of Italy. 

Sarri has endured some poor results in charge of the Blues, including a 6-0 loss to Manchester City, which sees them struggle to make the top four.

There were suggestions last month that Sarri had met with Roma already, but he denied this at a press conference.

Sarri said: “I have a contract with Chelsea for the next two seasons, so it is impossible to have another contract.

“I read in an Italian newspaper something about a meeting with Baldini but I think for the moment Franco is in South Africa, so it is very difficult.”
