Napoli will allow Maurizio Sarri to become the next Chelsea FC manager as long as the Italian coach doesn’t raid the Naples outfit for signings, according to a report in Italy.

Sport Italia, as quoted by Metro, is reporting that the Blues have finally made a breakthrough in their pursuit of the former Napoli manager this summer.

The same article states that Chelsea FC have agreed to a clause that would see the Blues avoid raiding Napoli for summer signings should Sarri take over the reins.

According to the same story, Napoli trio Elseid Hysaj, Raul Abiol and Piotr Zielinski could all be tempted to move to Chelsea FC to secure a big pay increase.

Sport Italia go on to claim that Napoli president Maurelio de Laurentiis is worried about losing the trio in the current transfer window should Sarri become the next Chelsea FC boss.

As a result, Napoli will asked Chelsea FC to enter into a “gentleman’s agreement” that would see the Blues avoid signing Senegal centre-half Kalidou Koulibaly as well as Hysaj, Albiol and Zielinksi this summer.

Chelsea FC finished in fifth place in the Premier League table last term to miss out on Champions League football.
