Insigne warns Sarri not to 'betray' Napoli

Maurizio Sarri's move to Juventus is being held up over Chelsea's demand for compensation.

Meanwhile, Napoli captain Lorenzo Insigne said that Sarri would be "betraying" his former club should he agree to coach rivals Juventus.

The Italian boss led the Blues to Europa League glory with a 4-1 win against Arsenal in the Baku final last week, after clinching a third-place Premier League finish. It has been a heavy year. I begin to feel the weight of distant friends, elderly parents I rarely see, My loyalty to Naples?

The 60-year-old, who is in Italy finalising his move to Juve, would have no qualms about upsetting Napoli's fan base by taking up the reins in Turin.


Real Madrid have an agreement in place to sign Ferland Mendy from Olympique Lyon, but want the French worldwide left-back to undergo a second medical before they conclude the transfer - a state of affairs that looks like pushing any announcement of a deal back until Monday. It's hard work, the bench. "I have slept [there] thirty nights in the last few years".

"The relationship will not change". Insigne played under Sarri at Napoli between 2015 and 2018, finishing twice runners-up in Serie A behind eight-time reigning champions Juventus. Speaking on Onda Cero, Mijatovic said: "Aside from Hazard - a signing which hasn't been made official yet - we're signing substitutes". His new deal runs until 2021.

Italy are training before upcoming Euro 2020 qualifiers against Greece and Bosnia-Herzegovina.

"The thing I want most is to raise a trophy with this shirt".
