Napoli's Senegalese worldwide centre-back Kalidou Koulibaly certainly believes Sarri is headed to Chelsea as he told English radio station talkSPORT after his country's opening 2-1 victory over Poland in the World Cup.
Maurizio Sarri is expected to be appointed as Chelsea boss and the club have been targeting players despite the uncertainty over their managerial situation.
'I'am disappointed that he leaves like this but we have now a big coach.
The 31-year-old, who scored 22 goals for the Italian League runners up last season, scored a fine goal in the Red Devils 3-0 win over Panama on Monday evening in their opening Group G game, a group that they are favourites to win.
"You can expect nice football because he's a very good coach". We know we can win something with him.

Each were assigned to a translator and authorities worked to determine their identities before they were sent to welcome centers. High waves and winds had forced the convoy to take a detour on its 1,500-kilometre (930-mile) voyage to Spain.
It is not yet clear what will happen to Chelsea's current manager Antonio Conte with the club undecided on his future but it now appears nearly certain that Sarri will be at Stamford Bridge next season. I hope he can win something with Chelsea.
Maurizio Sarri is moving ahead with finalising the makeup of his backroom staff at Chelsea after moving closer to securing Giovanni Martusciello, Inter's technical collaborator. He then tried convincing the club board to make a move for him last summer, but failed to do so once again before the player penned a new deal with Napoli.
Now, Sarri looks set to try his luck after telling friends that he wants to take Mertens with him to Chelsea. Two of their best players Belgian duo playmaker Eden Hazard and goalkeeper Thibault Courtois have also urged that Conte's future be sorted and players brought in before their rivals steal a march on them in the transfer market as they did previous year.
However, despite fresh interest from Chelsea this summer, Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis has identified Koulibaly as one of the players who is too important to lose.
