'I was having dinner with Cristiano Giuntoli's [Napoli sporting director] assistant and we were debating whether I should have stayed or not, ' Sarri said.

Since new Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri took over the Blues, the 32-year-old Cahill has not played a single minute under the Italian football coach.
