Maurizio Sarri’s lawyer insists Chelsea and the Coach “did not pay anything” to release him from his Napoli contract and is “not connected to Jorginho.”

This morning, Sarri was finally freed from his contract with Napoli and allowed to sign a three-year deal with Chelsea.

It had been reported the deal was connected to midfielder Jorginho for €57m plus another €8m in bonuses, however, his lawyers paint a different picture.

“We are all very happy, even if it was the longest and most complex negotiations I’ve ever seen,” lawyer Fabio Giotti told CalcioNapoli24.

“I’d define it almost unique, but at the same time we are very happy and satisfied to have reached an agreement.

“It was a termination by mutual consent. We got the paperwork down, word by word, overnight. Yesterday afternoon the media had said we’d found a solution when it wasn’t the case, but the signature arrived this morning. It satisfied everyone.”

Sarri did have a release clause in his contract worth €8m, but that had expired, so any exit had to be negotiated.

“There was no economic payment to Napoli from Chelsea, nor did Sarri have to pay any penalty to free himself from the Napoli contract.”

Is it true that Chelsea made a pact to avoid making offers for any other Napoli players?

“I’d prefer not to answer that, because there are some details that are redacted. Jorginho was absolutely not the key. Our negotiations with Napoli went on regardless of the Jorginho situation.”

After months of talks, did Sarri and his entourage fear he’d have to take the year out?

“Hope springs eternal! It really was working day and night to resolve the situation. We had to sort out every tiny detail or the whole thing would’ve collapsed.”
