Italian papers welcome Aaron Ramsey in Italy. The Welshman has completed a free move to Juventus and the club made his move official yesterday (READ the official announcement here). La Gazzetta dello Sport dedicates an article to Ramsey, the headline is “King of Wales”. The popular Italian sport paper has also released an interview with Juventus’ sporting director Fabio Paratici who has revealed a few “secrets” of the Old Lady’s transfer strategies, including the signing of Cristiano Ronaldo (READ HERE).

Italian media have also their eyes set on the future of Maurizio Sarri at Chelsea. Gab Marcotti on Il Corriere dello Sport, claims the Italian has three big problems at Chelsea:
  1. Sarri doesn’t rotate his players enough and those who usually play only in the FA Cup or in the Europa League are unhappy because they feel they are not important for their manager.
  2. His style is very different from those of Antonio Conte and José Mourinho and players are taking a while to understand it.
  3. Sometimes Sarri is too straightforward. “Sarri is very honest, sometimes too honest - writes Marcotti - and his words can be misinterpreted by those who want to.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the next game against Malmoe in Europa League could be decisive. The Blues are out of Champions League placements and anything could happen if Sarri loses in Sweden. Stefano Boldrini, the correspondent of La Gazzetta dello Sport, ends his article with a very interesting statement: Chelsea seem to have lost its soul, Sarri is under process but, for many, attacking the Italian is the easiest way to hide other problems at the club.
