Sarri has seen speculation about his job mount, with Juventus looking to the Italian to replace Max Allegri as their next boss, and Chelsea apparently ready to let him go if the Serie A club pay around £5 million.

The Italian’s situation is still uncertain, despite steering Chelsea into the Champions League in his first season and reaching two cup finals, including the clash against Arsenal in Baku next week.

But there is speculation that if he loses against the Gunners, Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich could swing the axe, with fans unhappy about the style of football played in an up and down campaign.

But Sarri said: “If the situation is like this, I want to go immediately.

“You cannot have ten months of work, and then I have to play for everything in 90 minutes.

“It’s not right. It’s not the right way. You’re either happy about my work or you’re not happy.”

The former Napoli coach, who only arrived at Stamford Bridge last July, added: “My future is Wednesday.

“I need to think only about the Europa League final. I have two years of contract left here, so I have no contact with other clubs.

“I have to speak to the club after the final. I want to know if they are happy with me or not.

“We had a good season, with problems of course. We lost two or three matches very, very badly. But we finished the league in third position. We got to the final of the League Cup, and now we are in the Europa League final.

“So the season is a very good season. If we win in Baku, it will become a wonderful season.

“This group deserve to continue to try to improve more.”

Chelsea were forced to pay £9 million in compensation to previous manager Antonio Conte, who was sacked after two years in charge.
