- Chelsea board will reportedly take nothing short of a top-four finish from Maurizio Sarri at the end of the season
- Club's owner Roman Abramovich also wants the Blues to end the campaign with a silverware
- Sarri will now have to meet the two conditions to keep his job at Stamford Bridge
Premier League giants, Chelsea, have a history of sacking top managers regardless of their achievements in the previous season.
And Maurizio Sarri's case will not be any different after the club board informed the Italian tactician of two conditions he must meet to keep his job at Stamford Bridge.
According to a Mail Online report, the Chelsea board has told Sarri to guide the Blues to a top-four finish at the end of the ongoing season.
Aside from that, club owner, Roman Abramovich would also fancy a silverware in return to his investment.
The decision is said to have been reached after Chelsea sealed Gonzalo Higuain's loan move to the London outfit from Juventus.
The signature of the talisman puts pressure on Sarri to deliver as it leaves him with no excuses to make.
The former Napoli tactician has a chance of winning the Carabao Cup, but will have to overcome Tottenham Hotspurs during Thursday night's semi-final clash of the competition.
He further faces a daunting task of sealing a Champions League spot at the end of the campaigning owing to Arsenal's and Manchester United's push for a top-four slot.
Chelsea currently sit fourth on the log with 47 points, just three more than the Gunners and United who sit fifth and sixth respectively.
Earlier, TUKO.co.ke reported that Chelsea have confirmed the signing of Argentine striker Gonzalo Higuain on a short term loan deal till the end of the season.
The 31-year-old who spent the first half of this season on loan at AC Milan will feature for the Blues for the rest of this campaign.
