Maurizio Sarri has suggested he could leave Napoli this summer, saying "everything comes to an end", amid reported interest from Chelsea.
The Italian held talks with club president Aurelio De Laurentiis on Wednesday regarding his future, but Sarri admits he is yet to make a decision on where he will be next season.
He has been strongly linked with replacing compatriot Antonio Conte at Chelsea, whose future at Stamford Bridge looks uncertain despite leading the club to FA Cup glory on Saturday against Manchester United.
"In life, everything comes to an end," said Sarri after Napoli's 2-1 win against Crotone. "Sometimes it's better to finish stories while they are good.
"When I arrived, the team had finished 24 points off the top. Now, we are four points behind.
"We have not reached the target, but the journey has been fantastic. Tomorrow I will talk to my family before anyone else," Sarri continued. "The (club) president needs a response quickly."
"I don't think I could go to another Italian team immediately. The memory of Napoli would be too strong."
When asked about Sarri's future, club president Aurelio De Laurentiis said: "Will Sarri remain? I don't know, time has run out."
