Sarri could be set for Chelsea axe as Blues revert to usual solution

The race is a tight one but Chelsea have the potential fallback of the Europa League; they play Eintracht Frankfurt in the semi-final and could meet the Gunners in the final, with Unai Emery’s men facing Valencia in the other last-four encounter.

The Telegraph claim that there will be a major restructuring of the club’s staff this summer regardless of results though, as they look to close the gap to top two Liverpool and Manchester City next season.

Sarri is said to be open to the possibility of a return to Italy, where he had spent the entirety of his career prior to his move to Chelsea.

Derby County manager Frank Lampard, the former midfield player who became a legend at Stamford Bridge, has been considered but there are reservations as to whether he could make the jump from Championship football.

The Blues have endured a difficult season characterised by fans calling for Sarri’s head and empty seats at Stamford Bridge.

That takes time, and a parting of the ways this summer would only set Chelsea even further back; any other manager is also going to want to institute his own playing style and methodology.
