Marina Granovskaia will arrive back in London on Monday, report Tuttosport, after spending a week in Russia, and she has several things on the agenda at Chelsea.
Firstly, there’s the Antonio Conte issue and getting the Italian to leave Stamford Bridge. Tuttosport report Chelsea will somewhat have to admit defeat on this one and agree to pay the manager around €20m given the favourable terms of his contract.
Then it’s on to Maurizio Sarri and Napoli, with the Serie A club still demanding compensation for their former manager, despite Carlo Ancelotti now being in the role.
It’s thought the amount will be around the €8m release clause which was in Sarri’s contract but had to be activated before the end of May.
After all that, Tuttosport pushed forward the signing of Gonzalo Higuain. The Argentine striker saying he’d like to play in the Premier League one day has truly caught the imagination in Italy, and Chelsea is seen as a fitting destination.
It’s believed he could reunited with Sarri at the English club.
