Sarri leaves Chelsea for Juventus

Lampard Chelsea Jorginho

After becoming the fifth manager to win a European trophy with the the Blues, Sarri will take over at Juventus, where European success will be expected by the club's hierarchy after a disappointing Champions League campaign last season, which saw their shock elimination by Ajax in the quarter finals.

Lampard's assistant manager Jody Morris is likely to be the first name on his list to join him back at the club where he became the all-time leading scorer with 211 goals.

He has ambitions to be a manager in his own right and as a former England and Chelsea captain, can offer Derby the profile and Premier League connections they enjoyed with Lampard.

In the meantime, we will continue to put our best foot forward to continue with our plans for the coming season.

"I think it would be a major surprise if he doesn't get the job".

Following the departure of Massimiliano Allegri from Juventus last month, the Chelsea boss has been heavily linked with Napoli's northern rivals, with Sarri himself having started his desire to return to Italy in a recent interview with GQ.

Several sources close to Chelsea have been talking about the return of a host of club legends to Stamford Bridge, which is set to be kick-started by the announcement of Cech's appointment in a leadership role across football operations. However, he has already been installed as the bookies favourite to succeed Sarri at the club with The Sunday Times reporting that owner Roman Abramovich called him personally last week to tell him that he would have at least two transfer windows to prove that he deserves the job.

A compensation package understood to be in excess of £5million was agreed with the Serie A champions.
