Sarri to hold talks with Chelsea after Europa League final


Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri says he'll speak to the club about his future after next week's Europa League final against Arsenal.

Sarri's been linked with the vacant manager's position at Juventus but he insists that no contact has been made with the Italian champions.

The former Napoli boss says he's happy at Stamford Bridge but whether he stays isn't down to him.

"I have two years of my contract here. I have no contract with other clubs. I have to speak with my club after the final. I want to know if they are happy with me."

Sarri, who admitted to being flattered by the link with Juve, added: "I very much like the Premier League. At the moment it's the most important championship in the world. It's very exciting to be here but now it's time to think only about the final.

"I'm very happy to stay in the Premier League, with Chelsea, one of the most important clubs in the Premier League.

"I'm very, very happy but we have to discuss the situation. It's normal. You have to discuss things with the club. It's like this."

The Chelsea manager wasn't keen to speak about Eden Hazard's future, with the Belgian reportedly set to join Real Madrid after the Europa League decider.

"I don't know. I want to respect his decision.

"I hope he will stay with us but we need to be ready if he decides something different. I have spoken with him but I don't want to say anything."

Sarri also brushed away questions about soon to retire Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech moving to Stamford Bridge as technical director for next season.

"I don't like to speak about an Arsenal player.

"He is a professional player, he has to play for Arsenal until the end of June, so I want to respect the player and the club. I don't want to speak about Cech at this moment."
