The Sarri-ball, like the show, must go on. Will it go on at Chelsea (has it even started)? Will it go back to Italy? No one seems to really know at this point. Sarri’s future of course “should” be assured, but he wouldn’t be the first Chelsea head coach to not continue after winning something, let alone simply meeting minimum expectations.

If Sarri is to leave, most reports agree that he’d end up at Juventus. And that would certainly be great news for one Gonzalo Higuaín, whose Chelsea career is likely over after Wednesday’s Europa League final, with the Blues not expected to pick up any of the options on his loan contract.

According to Fabrizio Romano however, Higuaín is “convinced” that he will end up playing for Sarri next season regardless of the colour of the shirt. He considers his own future “sorted” thanks to the power of Sarri-ball, and he will either “make a name for himself” at Stamford Bridge or go back to Juventus and play nice with Cristiano Ronaldo.

Higuaín’s situation, like Sarri’s should hopefully be clear soon after the Europa League final. The faster we resolve these uncertainties, the better off we’ll be for next season.
