Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis insists he wants coach Maurizio Sarri to stay.

Sarri has been linked with Antonio Conte’s job at Chelsea.

“Will Sarri be here for pre-season? I hope so,” De Laurentiis said in the Press conference to announce the squad’s training retreat in Trentino.

“I clearly have fewer doubts than you if you’re asking that question, but I can’t hold anyone by force.

“We have an appointment next week. Now we have to prepare for the away game [with Sampdoria], there’s travel and not much time.

“That’s why we’ve got an appointment for next week. But don’t worry, I’m calm.

“Is he the right Coach? I chose him myself, against most people’s advice…

“Relationships are always about give and take, it’s never one-sided. I don’t think we can complain about the football story of the past three years, he’s built a nice style, hailed by everyone abroad.

“There are many who would like to imitate him but it’s really difficult, so we’re all grateful.”

However, De Laurentiis also remarked: “Does Sarri want to leave? You don’t know Sarri, he’s devoted to his work and nothing else. It’s even difficult for his family to talk to him, so I try to interfere as little as possible.

“Then there comes a time when we have to talk, January for example.”
