A whole host of views are on offer in Tuesday’s papers regarding Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri’s future. Let’s take a look…

Give it to Zola till end of the season…

…but Sarri still has time?

Paper Round’s view: Sarri survived the Monday after the dreadful Sunday, so does that mean he will fight on for at least another week? After publicly acknowledging he is rarely in contact with owner Roman Abramovich, it would be a surprise if Sarri goes the week without a call from the man in charge at Stamford Bridge. Sarri likely still has time to prove he is the right man for the job - cue Tuesday dismissal...


United and Liverpool’s Ramsey ‘snub’

Paper Round’s view: £400,000 a week, for Ramsey, at Juventus. Give that man’s agent a medal. Staggering, no wonder no other club appeared to be in the picture, and no wonder Arsenal were resigned to losing him. They set a bar high with their wages for Mesut Ozil, and Ramsey could be the first of many they have contract problems with in the future.


Solari or Isco?

Paper Round’s view: Real’s recent resurgence under Solari, with Isco watching on from the sidelines, means the midfielder would likely be the one to move on. Isco has long been linked with moves to either Italy or England, namely Manchester City or Juventus – perhaps this is the summer it finally happens.
