Inter coach, Giovanni Martusciello will not be following Maurizio Sarri in his new adventure in England with Chelsea according to a report from Sky Sport. "I wish you every success in the future". The Serie A side, who still have Sarri under contract, have been in discussions with Chelsea to agree on a compensation fee and it is believed that everything has now been concluded.

Sarri has also presented a list of players he would like to sign.
