CHELSEA will not stand in boss Maurizio Sarri’s way if he wants to take over at Juventus.
But the Blues would demand £5million for any move to take the Italian back to his homeland.
And although there has been nothing official from Sarri or both clubs involved, it is believed the move could be a goer.
Bookie Paddy Power have even SLASHED the odds on Chelsea hero Frank Lampard being the man to replace Sarri at Stamford Bridge.
A flurry of bets means the 40-year-old is 1/4 to jump into the hotseat.
Lampard is currently preparing Derby for their Championship play-off final against Aston Villa.
SARRI THREATENS TO QUIT
SunSport have reported that Juventus are ready to swoop in and offer Sarri the vacant post in Turin following the sacking of Massimiliano Allegri.
Sarri has led Chelsea to a third-place finish in the Premier League and two cup finals this season.
But questions whether he will stay at Stamford Bridge beyond the current campaign have persisted.
And the Blues coach dropped a bombshell when it was again suggested his job is on the line.
Asked whether he needs to win the Europa League title to save his position, Sarri said: “If the situation is like this then I want to go immediately.

“After 10 months of work then I have to play for everything in 90 minutes. It is not the right way. You are either happy with my work or not.
“This season is a good season, of course, if we win the Europa League it will become a wonderful season.
“I think this group deserves to continue to try to improve more.”
