CHELSEA WILL ALLOW SARRI TO LEAVE


Maurizio Sarri will be allowed to leave Chelsea next week and become Juventus manager, Sky Sports News understands.
Sarri has told Chelsea he wants to return to Italy after one season in England and the club have said they will not stand in his way.
The 60-year-old has one year left on his contract - with the option of another year - but never felt comfortable living and working in England and was frustrated he did not have a close relationship with the decision-makers at Chelsea.
Chelsea had no plans to sack Sarri this summer but they do not want to keep someone who is unhappy.
He led Chelsea to a 4-1 win over Arsenal in the Europa League final to clinch the first trophy of his managerial career and said afterwards that he "deserved" to stay at the club.
However, Sarri feels he can now leave with his head held high, having qualified for next season's Champions League.
He will become the new Juventus manager, replacing Massimiliano Allegri, who left the Serie A champions at the end of the season after five years in charge.

HAZARD: REAL MADRID MY MOVE DREAM

Real Madrid have confirmed the signing of Eden Hazard from Chelsea on a five-year contract.
The 28-year-old will be officially unveiled as a Real player on Thursday, June 13 - subject to a medical - after striking a deal that could reportedly rise to a club-record transfer of £130m once all bonus payments come into play.
Hazard had one year remaining on his Chelsea contract but said it was his wish to leave Stamford Bridge after scoring twice in the Europa League final win over Arsenal.
Hazard released a statement on social media after the announcement, which read: "You now know that I will be joining Real Madrid. It's no secret that it was my dream to play for them since I was a young boy just scoring my first goal.
"Now the clubs have reached an agreement I hope you understand I had to pursue my next chapter, just as each and every one of you should when you have the chance to pursue your dreams.
"Leaving Chelsea is the biggest and toughest decision in my career to date. Now it's in the open I would like to put on record one thing was always clear to me, I have loved every moment at Chelsea and not once did I ever consider, nor would I have left for any other club."
Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia said: "Although it is with sadness we say goodbye to Eden and we made it absolutely clear to him the club wished him to stay, we respect the decision he has made to take on a new challenge in a different country and follow his childhood dream of playing for Real Madrid.

CAF PRESIDENT ARRESTED IN FRANCE



The president of the Confederation of African Football Ahmad Ahmad has been arrested in a Paris hotel by French police.
According to Jeune Afrique, Ahmad was picked up around 8:30 am at the Berri Hotel in Paris, by the services of the Central Office for the fight against corruption and financial and fiscal offences (Oclif).
It said the arrest may be related to the alleged misappropriation and corruption involving French company, Tactical Steel.
Former secretary-general of the confederation Amr Fahmy accused Ahmad of corruption before he was sacked in April.
Fahmy in a document sent to FIFA investigations committee accused the president of costing CAF an additional $830,000 because he ordered equipment through Tactical Steel.
Sabine Seillier, president of Tactical Steel, however, insisted that her company won the contract on a transparent basis. She noted that her company was the only one that could guarantee delivery of the equipment sought in a tight timeframe of three weeks.
When she was questioned if Tactical Steel was been involved in kickbacks to Ahmad or his associates, Seillier replied: “Absolutely not. Tactical Steel complies with French law.”
There are reports that Seiller’s husband is a friend of an acquaintance of Ahmad.
CAF is currently battling a major controversy with its flagship club competition, the CAF Champions League, ordered to be replayed after Tunisian club, Esperance were declared the winner. Wydad Casablanca walked off the field an hour into the second leg fixture because VAR was unavailable to judge a goal disallowed by the referee.

REAL AGREE £88m EDEN HAZARD DEAL WITH CHELSEA



Real Madrid have agreed a deal in principle for Chelsea forward Eden Hazard worth £88m plus significant add-ons, Sky Sports News understands.
It is understood Chelsea were demanding a fee in the region of £130m.
Hazard, who has one year left on his Chelsea contract, said it was his wish to leave Stamford Bridge after scoring twice to beat Arsenal 4-1 in the the Europa League final.
Chelsea might not be able to sign a replacement due to a two-window transfer ban imposed by FIFA after an investigation into the club's signing of foreign U18 players.
Zinedine Zidane is looking to rebuild his Real squad after a dismal season which saw them eliminated from the Champions League at the last-16 stage and finish third in La Liga - a record 19 points behind Barcelona, who knocked them out in the semi-final of the Copa del Rey.
They have already signed centre-back Eder Militao from Porto as well as striker Luka Jovic from Frankfurt.

RODRIGUEZ ASKS BAYERN NOT TO BUY HIM



James Rodriguez will leave Bayern Munich on June 30, after asking the German club to not take up the option to sign him permanently from Real Madrid.
Bayern will not exercise their option to buy him on a €42m (£36.6m) permanent deal in the summer, after accepting the Colombia international's request.
"[Rodriguez] asked Bayern not to take up the contractually agreed purchase option with Real. This wish was met the Bayern," Bayern confirmed in a statement.
Rodriguez played 67 competitive games for Bayern Munich across two seasons, scoring 15 goals and registering 20 assists on his way to claiming two Bundesliga titles and a German Cup.
He had a successful first season with Bayern but struggled in his second under new manager Niko Kovac, who said in January: "He is playing for his future without a doubt. Everyone who wants a contract needs to be at his best at all times."
The 27-year-old will return to his parent club Real Madrid, where he spent three seasons after a £71m move from Monaco following a successful 2014 World Cup in which he finished top scorer with six goals.
Rodriguez's future at Real will be in doubt as Zinedine Zidane made it clear when he loaned out the attacking midfielder in 2017 that he would not be part of his plans.
The CEO of Bayern Munich, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, said: "I thank James on behalf of FC Bayern Munich for two successful years. We have twice won the German Championship and the DFB Cup with him. In addition, we reached the semi-finals of the Champions League with him last season.
"James made an important contribution to all these successes. We wish James all the best for his future."
Rodriguez added: "My big thanks go to the entire club and the fans who have always given us great support. It was two unforgettable years for me in Munich and I have always felt very well here. I take the best memories and wish FC Bayern the best for the future. "

KATHYN MAYORGA WITHDRAWS RAPE CASE AGAINST CHRISTIANO RONALDO



The case taken against Cristiano Ronaldo on September 27 for rape has been withdrawn by Kathryn Mayorga.
Mayorga claimed at the time that the events had happened in a Las Vegas penthouse in 2009, when the player and alleged victim met at a nightclub.
But in 2010 the charges were withdrawn as she accepted a settlement sum of 375,000 dollars.
According to Bloomberg, the latest case has also been withdrawn and the Nevada State Court received documentation last month, though it didn't state whether or not an agreement had been reached on this occasion.
Cristiano has always denied the events took place as Mayorga stated, thought reports have claimed that the Juventusstar 'bought' her silence.
